Co-Ed Fever aired just once on February 4, 1979 on CBS.
One of the biggest theatrical movie hits of 1978 was a slapstick look at college life titled Animal House. Whether by pure coincidence or not each of the 3 networks rushed to television early in 1979 a comedy series that centered around college hijinks. ABC had Delta House, and NBC Brothers And Sisters, but to CBS went the distinction of a series so dreadful that it never even made it to it's regular time slot ( on Monday). Co-Ed Fever was seen just once, as a " special preview" on Sunday February 4, 1979, following the telecast of the movie Rocky.
The setting for Co-Ed Fever was a co-educational dormitory at rustic Baxter College. The dormitory Brewster House was peopled by a wide assortment of kooky college students; Tucker ( David Keith), Maria also known as Mousie ( Alexa Kenin), Doug( Christoper S. Nelson), a weathy chap, Elizabeth( Cathryn O'Neal), Gobo( Michael Pasternak), Hope ( Tacey Philips),an ultra sexy blonde named Sandi ( Heather Thomas), and a spaced-out housemother, Mrs. Selby ( Jane Rose).
CBS chose a new sitcom, Billy, to replace Co-Ed Fever in it's midseason lineup.
