Fourth season opener means Ricky Segall
28 March 2014 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Hate Thy Neighbor" was an interesting idea to open the fourth season, introducing a new neighbor, Doris Stevens (Nita Talbot), who detests show business people, but never goes anywhere because the character never made another appearance. Taking a liking to Keith is daughter Donna (MY THREE SON's Ronne Troup), who likewise never appeared again, so the obvious reason for these neighbors is to introduce one new recurring character, 4 year old son Ricky (Ricky Segall), whose show business aspirations are highlighted in 9 further episodes, warbling his own songs at the conclusion of each appearance. Whatever the producers thought of the cuter than cute Ricky, viewers did not reciprocate, the show inexplicably moved from Friday to Saturday nights, opposite CBS powerhouse ALL IN THE FAMILY, the ratings plummeted, and the series was canceled at the same time as THE BRADY BUNCH. All the songs featured this final season were taken from the eighth and final LP BULLETIN BOARD, issued Oct 1973, which failed to chart in Billboard's Top 200, the lone single (the group's tenth, Nov 1973), "Lookin' for a Good Time" (heard only in "Danny Drops Out"), also failing to appear on the singles charts. The new sound debuts with "I'll Never Get Over You" (also heard in "Art for Mom's Sake"), composed by the very same Tony Romeo who contributed the number one smash "I Think I Love You."
