Small point ...
I don't remember much about the show, except that Somers is an attractive actress, both of physically (of course) but more importantly as a person.
But this was part of an odd experiment where in the late 1980s, the powers that be, on NBC, tried to start "prime time" at 7:30 PM rather than 8PM.
I think they figured if they could rope a viewer in early they might be able to keep that viewer for the following shows.
Didn't work -- though interesting that Fox did something similar, successfully very soon after.
