Production

CBS was so eager to have Van Dyke return to their network that they signed him to a three-year contract. Van Dyke was living in Cave Creek, Arizona at the time and did not want to move back to Hollywood. So the network agreed to film the show in a studio in nearby Carefree, Arizona.

Reception

The show's Nielsen ratings were good during the first season. The show had a timeslot in CBS's highly-rated Saturday night lineup which included All in the Family, Funny Face and The Mary Tyler Moore Show [1] (which starred Van Dyke's former co-star). But the ratings were comparatively much lower than the shows surrounding it. In its second season, the show was moved to the network's low-rated Sunday night lineup and the ratings fell tremendously.[1] CBS wanted to cancel the show but they had Van Dyke under a three-year contract. The network decided to retool the show. When TV viewers or entertainment professionals in the United States mention ratings they are often referring to Nielsen Ratings, a system developed by Nielsen Media Research to determine the audience size and composition of television programming. ...

An episode produced for the third season, "Lt. Preston of the 4th Cavalry," included an off-camera scene in which Dick and Jenny's daughter walked in on them while they were having sex. CBS refused to air the episode claiming it was incompatible with Van Dyke's family-friendly image. This so incensed Carl Reiner that he refused to continue on the show beyond the third season, citing the network's hypocrisy. Notably, CBS at this time was allowing a number of other shows, such as All in the Family (starring Reiner's son, Rob) to deal openly and with much more controversial topics. Reiner promised never to work with the CBS network again. (In 1981, Reiner appeared in an episode of CBS's Walt Disney and the CBS TV-movie Skokie). The concept of family friendly entertainment or information, or of the media carrying them being so, is an aspect of the family values controversy in American political and social discourse. ...

Some sources have inaccurately reported that the controversial unaired episode was produced during the second season, and that Carl Reiner quit the series before the start of the third season. In fact, the episode, was produced during the third season and Carl Reiner remained as producer of the series until the final episode produced which he also wrote and directed.[2]


Although the show's ratings improved, Van Dyke no longer enjoyed working away from his home and did not want to continue the show without Reiner. He chose not to renew his contract and moved back to Arizona. Official language(s) English Spoken language(s) English 74. ...

Van Dyke has often said that his favorite comic was Stan Laurel, and like Laurel he had exquisite timing, an innate likability on-screen, a rubber face, and a mastery of pratfalls and slapstick.
Van Dyke has spent his recent years in the company of Michelle Triola, who is famous for suing her former lover Lee Marvin, demanding and winning alimony -- "palimony" -- although they had never married.
