TV Series
    (September 13, 1972-February 21, 1973)
    Aired on ABC
    Paul Lynde as Paul Simms
    Elizabeth Allen as Martha Simms
    Pamelyn Ferdin as Sally Simms
    Jane Actman as Barbara Dickerson
    John Calvin as Howie Dickerson
    Premise: The everyday frustrations of a successful lawyer, his wife, his two daughters and his oldest daughter’s unemployed husband
    Paul Lynde as a family man? Who came up with that idea?
    The conflict between Lynde and his unemployed son-in-law was derivative of ‘All in the Family.’
    A large percentage of the episodes ended with someone falling into a swimming pool.
    Have we mentioned that they cast Paul Lynde as a family man?
    Its featured catchphrase was Paul’s wife asking ‘How’s the rat race?’ and Lynde replying, ‘The rats are winning!’
    Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara made guest appearances as Howie’s parents.
    Lynde made a memorably out-of-place appearance on ‘The Dating Game’ to promote the show.
