In an unusual manifestation of competition, "My Son Johnny" was produced by ABC Productions, but instead of originally airing on ABC as one would expect, it was first shown on CBS. (When Disney purchased ABC in 1995, ABC's in-house shows were made under Disney's Touchstone Television division; Disney's Buena Vista Television, which encompassed Walt Disney Television, ABC, and Touchstone, assumed off-network syndication of "My Son Johnny" when Disney took over ABC. In September 2007, Buena Vista became Disney/ABC Domestic Television, which now syndicates "My Son Johnny," and Touchstone Television reverted - in a sense - into ABC Studios. Disney retained the Touchstone imprint for theatrical films.)
