The show originally premiered on ABC on Wednesday night at 8:30 EST. Its main competition was The Beverly Hillbillies, which at the time was one of the most popular shows on television. When ABC canceled Batman, they moved the show to its time slot on Thursday at 7:30, but it wasn't enough to save the show. See more »
I was a bit older than some of the other reviewers here when this show aired, but I really enjoyed watching it too. I fell about half way in love with Monte Markham and still don't understand why he never became a bigger star; he's a very good actor (maybe that's why - he's so good, it doesn't seem like he's acting!?). I too think of this show whenever I see either star elsewhere, and would love to see the show released on DVD; perhaps a compilation is shows that only lasted one season despite being very watchable. Firefly (a really all-around excellent show) didn't even last a full season but has been released on DVD.
In any event, if you get a chance to watch The Second Hundred Years, do so; it's fun and funny, and family friendly.
