... John Schuck was much better the same year opposite Sharon Gless in TURNABOUT ...
"Holmes & Yo-Yo" aired during the 1976-77 season; "Turnabout" was not the same year, it ran for seven weeks in early 1979.
I thought the chemistry between Richard B. Shull and John Schuck was something that was developing as the series progressed. The humor was a bit silly at times, but the same can be said for even the best two-man teams -- Laurel & Hardy, Gleason & Carney, etc. It was easily more entertaining than most other sitcoms of the 1976-77 season. If there had been a second season, we'd be seeing the series in syndication and on DVD.
Both sitcoms deserve to be remembered, and released on DVD so a new generations of fans can discover them!
