I guess that’s because older white guys headlining middlin’ sitcoms is only suitable for ABC on Friday nights. But, even that market is getting crowded by Ken Jeong. But, let’s talk about the show. Don Rickles plays himself, while battling with another white guy who doesn’t like his methods. But, he takes care of his sailors while giving them grief. Throw in a comic relief girlfriend and the usual contrived plots to pad it all out.
Naturally, the show died early in March 1978 with this second season. I’ve got to give it to NBC for sticking it out this long. The most famous thing about the show is when Johnny Carson broke onto the set to give Rickles grief for his guest host spot. Everything else belongs to the domain of obscure TV trivia. The DVD comes with a CPO Sharkey cast reunion recorded in Las Vegas this year. The A/V Quality is amazingly cleaned up when compared to the weird fans who keep trying to put VHS rips up on YouTube.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
