1970s / Forgotten Sitcom - The Partners
In 1971 NBC had high hopes for a new sitcom titled The Partners. It starred Don Adams as Detective Sergeant Lenny Crooke and Rupert Crosse as his partner Detective Sergeant George Robinson. Both cops were prone to acts of comic carelessness but Crooke was the more bumbling of the two. Rare for its time, The Partners had no opening montage or theme song. Its title and credits were simply interspersed among the opening scene. (Music did accompany the closing credits, however, and the same tune was occasionally heard leading into some scenes.) Adams had hoped the series would address serious social issues, but NBC preferred to recast Adams in a purely comedic role similar to his Maxwell Smart character from Get Smart which had ended in 1970. The Partners scored very well with test audiences, so NBC slotted it at 8 p.m. on Saturday night beginning on September 18, 1971. In a stroke of bad luck, in the fall of 1971 CBS decided to move its surprise hit All in the Family to the same time slot to replace the fading My Three Sons. The Partners was crushed in the ratings. It was pulled from NBC's lineup in January 1972 although a few unaired episodes were shown in the summer.
