The series' ratings declined in the third season. This was due to a timeslot change from Wednesday nights to Monday nights where it was against The Carol Burnett Show (1967). NBC offered executive producer Sheldon Leonard the choice of having the series renewed or making a new series. Leonard decided to produce My Friend Tony (1969) instead. He believed that continuing "I Spy" would lessen its syndication value as the series was struggling with creating new ideas. Also, NBC had refused to move the show back to Wednesdays. Culp and Cosby had tired of the series and were relieved that it was cancelled. See more »
During the opening credits sequence of many early episodes, scenes from that episode are shown underneath a closeup of Robert Culp's eyes. If you look closely, Culp's facial expressions (concerned, happy, etc.) almost always match the action happening on the screen. Later in the series, a standard set of action/romance/humor scenes was used. See more »
If I think back to all of it, this show started it all. For some viewers who have not watched it, and best remember Bill Cosby from The Cosby Show. When ever this show will be shown in re-runs on T.V.Land. Just might find this show very enjoyable. Bill Cosby and Robert Culp were perfectly cast has Alexander Scott and Kelly Robinson two undercover agents going on dangerous missions and enjoying sight seeing. This show in many ways tried not to be to serious or to silly. It is a great blend of action and humor.
