I'm glad somebodyelse agrees with me Hawkeye. Looking at the show now, there are times I applauded Major Winchester more than Hawkeye and B.J. who are a - holes at times. The same goes for Potter. This show I say goodbye to.

I don't know if it counts, but I always think of The Doris Day Show because it went through several format changes. It started as a rural sitcom, where she lived on a farm with 2 kids and Gramps. Then the next season, she got a job in the city, and in season 3 she and the kids moved to San Francisco. In season 4, the kids were dropped from the show and never mentioned again as if they never existed! Season 5 put more emphasis on her romantic life.

Dark Shadows is another show that comes to mind. It started as a gothic soap opera, but was failing in the ratings. After about a year, it was facing cancellation, so in a last ditch effort, the writers introduced a new character: vampire Barnabas Collins and the ratings skyrocketed! He became the star of the show, and it became a full blown supernatural soap and introduced science fiction aspects like time travel.
