This show depicts the life of a young father raising his son on his own. Bill Bixby is an excellent actor and he is fabulous as the protagonist. A very likable show whose premise hasn't changed much over the years, it is difficult to raise a child alone.

This was a sweet show. The show was cancelled in 1972, when Bixby had a falling out with James Komack over the show's direction. Many of the later episodes focused on Norman, Tom, and Eddie rather than on the relationship between Tom and Eddie.

The series is about a widower, Tom Corbett (played by Bill Bixby), who is a magazine publisher, and his young son, Eddie (played by Brandon Cruz). Eddie believes his father should marry, and manipulates situations surrounding the women his father is interested in. (Eddie's matchmaking efforts were the theme of the movie, but gradually became less central to the storylines in the series.)
