Despite excellent ratings (it was the highest-rated new show of the 1972-73 season) this show was cancelled after only one season. The "official" reason for its cancellation was that it was scheduled between two mega-hits, All in the Family and The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and its ratings weren't strong enough considering its choice position in the line-up. Even series star David Birney conceded that, "They probably could have run rat races in that time slot and people would've tuned in." (This idea was debunked in 1974 when "Paul Sands in Friends and Lovers" debut in that position and was cancelled after five shows.) See more »
A standard 70s sitcom, in most ways. I remember it as having the standard "wacky" plots and few, if any, real surprises. It was a cute show. I was prompted to look it up today because of the parallel nature of the plot with the more current "Dharma and Greg". Just replace Catholic with Hippie and Jewish with Staunch Republican.
I'm surprised that CBS actually caved-in to cancel a popular show, just due to hate mail. I didn't know anybody at the time that even remotely considered this fluffy, light entertainment program to be controversial, or shocking. If CBS had any sense, they would have played up the controversy to boost the ratings. No apologies!
It was simply a "feel good" show about a couple who lived in an apartment over a delicatessen who had nosy, annoying parents.
