Dolly Parton had undergone a drastic physical transformation shortly before the series began, causing ABC executives concern over her weight. An episode guest-starring Dolph Lundgren never aired, reportedly because the network brass thought she appeared too thin.

I don't agree with the other user's comments and thought
the show was very entertaining and fast-paced. Brett Butler did most of the writing and did an acceptable job for the skits. At least we had a chance to see a real variety show once more. The variety show format was already dead but was revived for a short time with Dolly. I have the entire series on video and still enjoy watching it from time to time. It
sure beats anything else on TV these days, at least in my opinion. Maybe that's why it didn't last longer - it
didn't have any sex or violence.
