The Ultimate Summer Series; Duffy's Tavern meets Cheers
This show lasted the two summer seasons of 1972 and 1973. The plots spun around the assorted characters hanging around Harry Grant the first season. The dialogue was great; the cabdriver used to say, "I got a Mother who's Irish and a Mother-in-law who's Italian. The only thing they can agree on is the pope." Then, there was the time the staff joined a union and went on strike only to discover that Harry had already given them wonderful benefits. This show came back in 1973, but lost most of its charm. What is interesting is that Harry Ritz and Huntz Hall were considered for the leads.
