  1. Big Shamus Little Shamus was the big flop of that season. It starred Brian Dennehy as the house detective at an Atlantic City hotel who was raising his young son played by Doug McKeon , best known as the boy who bonds with Henry Fonda in On Golden Pond. This was the first of only 2 episodes and BTW, this is the only show here that is not a sitcom! Kind of a surprise that all these shows were on CBS, but the fact was that even with 8 of the top 10 shows, CBS did not have a single freshman fall series return next season, unless you want to count Archie Bunker’s Place, which was really All In The Family without Mike and Gloria!
