  • Trivia

    • This segment marked Tony Franciosa's farewell to the series. Universal tired of his constant quarrels with the producers and fired him quite early into the filming of this third series, although the episodes he had completed were spread out over many weeks. Instead of hiring a permanent replacement, the show featured various guest actors playing other journalists in the employ of Howard Publications, who variously starred in episodes originally planned for Franciosa.
