    Hell, this could be a trivia question. I bet most of the board would have no clue, without looking it up.
    Hee hee hee HAW HAW.
    I actually used to watch that show.

    If I wanted to watch TV at the time that it was on, I was forced to watch because my parents loved it. So I know the Hager Brothers well. Wish I knew Gunilla Hutton or Barbi Benton better.

    There are a lot of key figures on that show who have passed, I'm afraid.

    The show has roots in Canada, believe it or not.

    There was a reason it was placed where it was, I think. Counter-programming something maybe. I'll see if my friend google can help me.

    I think it was on CBS for a while, then went syndicated.

    It was the summer replacement for The Smothers Brothers show. It was canceled a year later when all the CBS 'rural' shows were axed by Fred Silverman. Went into syndication as Mark says.
