No, the primary cause was that it was bad. How it lasted even as long as it did is a mystery to me. There were some episodes on YouTube some time back. When I watched one, I didn't see or hear anything even vaguely funny. In terms of other sitcoms of the era, it made The Ropers look like a masterpiece.

Edited to add: I actually watched this during its network run and it wasn't funny then, either. The movie was a lot funnier, and that was supposed to be mainly drama rather than comedy.
