This show and the next one do NOT feature Robert Walden (as reporter Joe Rossi), except in the opening credits. Walden was holding out for a salary raise (he told an interviewer that the initials of the production company, MTM, really stood for "Mighty Tight Money"). With a Screen Actors' Guild strike looming, the company went ahead and filmed the two completed scripts without using him -- or paying him. Walden returned to the set, along with the rest of the cast, when the strike ended. After the two shows were in the can and Walden was sidelined without any income at all (except for rerun payments), one of the producers said of Walden: "Bobby is a hell of an actor, but a lousy poker player. He just overplayed his hand." See more
