Other guest stars
The program debuted on October 10, 1960, and finished its original episodes on June 28, 1961. It aired at 8:30 pm Eastern on Mondays between Pete and Gladys (starring Harry Morgan and Cara Williams) and The Danny Thomas Show. Its competition was ABC's new detective series Surfside 6 set in Miami, and Dale Robertson's Tales of Wells Fargo Western series on NBC. In the following season, CBS returned Robert Young to the 8:30 Monday timeslot in his Window on Main Street nostalgia comedy, which also failed to develop an audience.
