Sherwood Schwartz blamed the show's failure on its time slot, Friday at 8PM Eastern & Pacific/7 PM Central, up against ABC's family-oriented sitcom lineup TGIF, where the original series once aired. He believed the show should be on later, but CBS refused to move Dallas (1978), which, while declining, was still a Top 40-rated series.
Nora is a nurse in the movie and in the Brady 500 2 episodes but by the end of the series she is suddenly going in to business as a caterer with Marcia and Tracy. There is no mention of her quitting her nursing career.
The 6 episodes were later re-edited into three TV movies for syndication and featured a new theme song sung by Florence Henderson.
