Korman quit the Carol Burnett Show, sick of playing second fiddle to the famous comedienne; and started his own show. Burnett hired Dick Van Dyke to replace him in 1977. Ironically, Korman started his own show in 1977, and hired Dick Van Dyke's son, Barry Van Dyke. Also ironically, both Van Dykes only lasted a few episodes. Dick was fired after a few episodes (or "released from his contract") because he did not click with viewers the way Korman did; Van Dyke junior was cancelled only because the Harvey Korman show only lasted a few episodes. The Van Dykes would work together years later on the Diagnosis Murder Series. See more
