Were there any other primetime TV shows with a prostitute as a main character?

Default Prostitutes in Primetime...few and far between

It was almost never explored within the storylines, but the Miss Kitty character on 'Gunsmoke' was a prostitute.

I seem to remember a recurring character on 'Barney Miller' who was a prostitute, though I can't remember the name of the character.

"The John Larroquette Show" leaps to mind. As I recall, Gigi Rice's character, Carly, fits that description. She might not be considered a "main" character, but featured prominently.

I liked Hot L Baltimore for Conchata Farrell she had a great laugh, and Charlotte Rae was also a cast member. I wish they would release it on dvd.

I'll agree with this about the suits at Sony, look what they did to FK for us FK fans. I don't understand the corporate mind. You can catch more flies with honey, than vinagar.

I remember watching it on ABC when I was a kid. It seemed to be pretty funny at the time and I missed it when it left the air.I really didn't understand "canceled" at the time and I remember hoping that it would come back.

Honestly, having seen snippets of the show at various sites online, I can see where a 1970's audience would have had trouble w/ the program as most of the jokes would have gone over most people's head. If they tried something like this now, perhaps the audiences would be more receptive.
