was a comedy that ran from 1979 to 1982 on CBS, lasting
for three seasons and 57 total episodes. The show was
based on the 1978 by the same name, which starred Walter
Matthau. The TV series starred Wayne Rogers as Dr.
Charley Michaels and as Lynn Redgrave as Ann Atkinson.
After the birth of her child in real life, Lynn Redgrave
was fired from the show, and Sharon Gless was brought in
to play the new role of hospital administrator Jane
this show, the hospital administrative, Ann Atkinson
(Redgrave) had to cope with a bunch of crazy doctors,
with Dr. Michaels (Rogers) being her biggest offender.
Complicating matters further was the fact that she was
in love with him, although she managed to keep things
professional. In addition to Dr. Michaels was the
younger, Dr. Solomon (Ray Buktenica),, and then the
older Dr. Wearthby (David Wayne), whose shenanigans
proved to make good comedy.
