I watched this every week when it originally aired, and remember enjoying it. I have not seen it since, so I do not know how I would feel about it if I saw it now. I remember that I liked her rapport with Burgess Meredith. I always liked Sally Struthers, and wish she had done much more movies and TV during her career.
It got very good ratings, and I was surprised when it was canceled. I had read somewhere that it was canceled because "Archie Bunker's Place" was canceled that same season, and the network did not want to upset Carroll O'Connor by leaving this spin-off on the air. I always thought that sounded rather strange, so it could just be a rumor. Does anyone know why CBS canceled this show after one season even though the ratings were high?
