Room for One More is an American sitcom, principally starring Andrew Duggan and Peggy McCay as the heads of the Rose family which aired on ABC from January 27 until July 28, 1962. Its humor derives from their decision to augment their existing family with two adopted children. Actors playing the children included Tim Rooney, second son of actor Mickey Rooney, Ahna Capri, Carol Nicholson, and Ronnie Dapo, who thereafter appeared as Phil Silvers's nephew on CBS's The New Phil Silvers Show. Jack Albertson played a neighbor, Walter Burton, with Maxine Stuart as his wife, Ruth Burton. Tommy Farrell played the character Fred in five episodes.
Thus, Room for One More and its contemporary, My Three Sons, "were significant departures from the mom-and-pop model of the family" that typified American television comedy of its era. As with the similar Brady Bunch that would debut seven years later, the plots on Room for One More tended to feature "easily solvable situations".
Room for One More aired at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time on Saturday, having replaced another ABC/WB offering, The Roaring 20s.
