The Tim Conway Comedy Hour was one of several attempts to develop a starring vehicle for Tim Conway, who had been very popular as a sidekick in the 1962-1966 situation comedy McHale's Navy and two 1964 theatrical films spun off from it (McHale's Navy and McHale's Navy Joins the Air Force) and in several Disney films but who had never had much success in developing an audience for programming in which he was the main star (see Rango). In fact, his previous show, the situation comedy The Tim Conway Show, had run for only 12 episodes in the spring of 1970, and had been cancelled almost at the same time that he agreed to host The Tim Conway Comedy Hour.
This program was no different. Despite Conway's best efforts, and those of the Nelson Riddle Orchestra and cast members such as Sally Struthers (soon to go on to fairly major stardom in the important supporting role of Gloria Bunker on the hit sitcom All in the Family), this program was cancelled after 13 weeks (a fate which was to befall Conway so frequently that at one point TV Guide ran a picture of his car sporting a California vanity license plate reading "13 WKS").
