  • Notes

    • In his book, I Shouldn't Even Be Doing This!, Bob reveals that by this point in the season he and Executive Producer Roland Kibbee weren't getting along. During a break in production for Christmas Bob told his manager he was unhappy with the show and wanted out. A studio executive explained that if he left Bob would be breaking his contract and could be sued by the network. Bob returned to the show, but by February the show had a new Executive Producer and Bob became head writer.
