One of the Best One Season Shows
6 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

I'm glad to see this show is now out on DVD.I never thought NBC gave it a chance.Even though it only ran one full year,it was canceled in November or December of 1973.I thought maybe it was given a reprieve when didn't go off in January 1974,but it did only last one season.Three top-notch comedy players made up the cast in the late,great Kathleen Freeman,the recently departed Dom Deluise,& the always delightful Beverly Sanders,who made a very successful career in ads for Arm & Hammer Baking Soda & Hunt's Tomato Sauce after this program's demise.Wynn Irwin was so wonderfully obnoxious as the deadbeat brother-in-law,I suspect he really caught hell from fans who saw him on the streets.RIP,Mr.Deluise.
