The young son of a widower plays matchmaker for his dad, often with humorous and touching results. The series, based on the 1963 Glenn Ford-Ronny Howard film, was produced by costar James Komack, who later did 'Welcome Back, Kotter.'
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.
