  • Ratings

    It was hoped that Stevenson's popularity on M*A*S*H would draw viewers in, but the actor's first starring vehicle failed to find an audience and was cancelled after three months, with only ten of its twelve produced episodes airing. The series would be the first of a string of shows Stevenson would star in that would be canceled after short runs (followed by In the Beginning, Hello, Larry, his stint as a panelist on the final season of Match Game, Condo, and the TV adaptation of Dirty Dancing).
