The loss of the soap opera "The Best of Everything' was a tragedy.
29 May 2008 | by frankcharles74See all my reviews

I was a cameraman at ABC in 1970 and worked all of the episodes of "The Best of Everything." All the professionals attached to the show not only liked it but respected it which was unusual for the crew of a soap. When it suddenly went off the air in September of that year it was a surprise to the crew because the ratings were still good and there were no discernible problems with the production in the studio. We eventually got second and third-hand reports that there was some kind of dispute between the network and the producers. I'm not sure but I think I remember hearing something about disputed residuals. Anyway, the wrong show was knocked off the air. It was almost like seeing your best friend killed in an accident.
