RIP Kevin Dobson

 

He was great as Mack. I was also just watching him on an old edition of Battle of the Network Stars

 

I've never seen as much of KL as I'd like to, but I did watch him on Kojak reruns and on that episode of Battle. They did a wonderful profile of him where he talked about his career and family, and you couldn't help but fall in love. He seemed like such a sweet and genuine man who was grateful for all of his success.

It is the 41st anniversary of the premiere episode.  Isn't odd to think back to a time when TV was watched by so many people at the same time that the number 1 show could be scheduled at 9PM on a Friday, the spinoff would premiere during a holiday week, and the reveal of Who Shot JR didn't even wait for sweeps week? 

 

I also find the tagline amusing because Knots was supposed to be about average people living in a cul-de-sac, but in reality, a house in Pacific Palisades (which Knots fictionalized) would be around 4 million dollars, whereas the real Southfork Ranch today is estimated at 5 million, so Gary and Val weren't exactly slumming it...

Lest we forget, the house was a wedding present from Miss Ellie.

 

Not to mention that within a few years, Gary had his inheritance from Jock Ewing, Val was a bestselling author, Karen was a businesswoman remarried to a man employed by the state and Laura was involved with a politician. And yet to David Jacobs, KL was about "us" while DALLAS was about "them."

Yes that was an odd date for Knots to debut. 

CBS initial lineup was Waltons/Hawaii Five0/Barnaby Jones which were all ageing shows. So they moved Barnaby to 9 and brought in Knots which immediately did better in that timeslot.

CBS played Dallas on Thurs at 10 and Friday at 10 to get viewers interest in both timeslots. Dallas was 2nd and 3rd. I cant recall but was there a Gary and Val episode of Dallas that lead to Knots?

As for the middle class aspect, as the soap wars heated up in the 80's there was pressure to be more glitzy and Knots was caught up in that.

I just checked Dallas  Season 3 ep 14 Return Engagement dealt with Gary and Val re-uniting and heading for California.

So Knots had to debut after that episode aired, which might have dictated that debut date.
