TV Disaster - My Three Sons Final Season My Three Sons ran for 12 seasons (1960 through 1972), first on ABC then on CBS. It is the second-longest running live-action sitcom in American TV history, behind only The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. Despite plentiful cast changes, the departure of three major characters, and implausible plot twists, it remained a reliable ratings-grabber year after year. For most of its time on CBS, MTS enjoyed a favorable Saturday 8 p.m. time slot. Prior to what would be its final season, CBS decided to give its hugely popular new series All in the Family the time slot MTS was accustomed to having. MTS was moved to Monday at 10 p.m.--a horrible time for most kids to watch it. In addition to the time change for the twelfth season, a bizarre storyline was introduced: Fred MacMurray, who played family patriarch Steven Douglas, took on a second role--that of his cousin the Laird (Lord) Ferguson McBain Douglas of Sithian Bridge. English actor Alan Caillou's voice was dubbed for MacMurray's whenever Lord Douglas spoke. The plot centered around Lord Douglas' arrival in Los Angeles from Scotland. He came in search of a First Lady to marry and return with him to Scotland. He found Terri Dowling (Anne Francis), a waitress at the Blue Berry Bowling Alley. While initially reluctant to give up her life in America and return to Scotland as royalty, she finally accepted. This odd storyline was a continuation of a plot idea that originally began in the fourth season, when the Douglases visited Scotland on the pretense of having been told they had inherited a castle. With a later time slot--well after many younger MTS fans had gone to bed--the show finished the season outside the Top 30 for only the second time. In an attempt to save the series, CBS moved MTS in midseason to Thursday at 8:30 P.M. Nevertheless, MTS ended its prime-time run in the spring of 1972. Fred MacMurray, bitterly disappointed, protested the show's cancellation to CBS head honcho Fred Silverman, but to no avail. Although MTS was a staple on the rerun circuit for many years, the awful twelfth season was generally not included in the episodes made available for rebroadcast.

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.

Red Skelton - Parade Watcher One of comedian Red Skelton's most memorable skits was to mimic an old man watching a parade. This clip shows two versions of this routine: The first is from his CBS variety show sometime in the 1950s; the other is from late in Red's life when he was performing on tour.

1975 Sitcom Flop - The Montefuscos NBC was struggling to come up with a successful sitcom in 1975--and they failed again with The Montefuscos. The premise of the show was that three generations of an Italian-American family would gather each Sunday night for dinner at the home of the family patriarch and matriarch. Critics hated the show. One referred to it as "The Monte-Fiascos." Others objected to what they perceived as blatant ethnic sterotyping. Audiences didn't think much of it either. It could not compete with the competition opposite it on CBS (The Waltons) or on ABC (Barney Miller). The Montefuscos was axed after just eight episodes. Here's a three-minute network preview of the first episode of the short-lived series.

Celebrity Sweepstakes - Game Show Celebrity Sweepstakes was an NBC game show that aired from April 1, 1974 to October 1, 1976. It was hosted by Jim MacKrell. Here's how it worked: A panel of six celebrities was asked a trivia question. Before knowing the exact question but only the category, the members of the studio audience, through an electronic voting system, determined the odds of each panelist answering the question correctly by selecting whom they thought was most likely to give the correct answer. Based on those odds, the contestants wagered money on a celebrity and then found out if the bet was a good one. Celebrity Sweepstakes was originally slotted against Search for Tomorrow where it did not fare well against the popular CBS soap opera. It was then moved to 10 a.m. where it routinely bettered The Joker's Wild in the ratings. However, when CBS expanded The Price is Right to an hour, Celebrity Sweepstakes was blown away. For years it was believed all Celebrity Sweepstakes episodes had been erased by NBC, but obviously this one survived. This is the final eight minutes of the final show from October 1, 1976.
