I Spy

A pair of agents go undercover as a tennis pro and his trainer. Kelly Robinson is the man with a racket, Alexander Scott is, among other things, a polyglot. The creation of the Cinemobile for location shooting enabled far-flung episodes in Hong Kong, Europe, Mexico, etc. The writing is of a standard that would be very difficult to match in any circumstances, or as Scott & Robinson might say, the wonderfulness of its marvelousness is only equal to the marvelousness of its wonderfulness.

    The series' ratings declined in the third season. This was due to a timeslot change from Wednesday nights to Monday nights where it was against The Carol Burnett Show (1967). NBC offered executive producer Sheldon Leonard the choice of having the series renewed or making a new series. Leonard decided to produce My Friend Tony instead. He believed that continuing "I Spy" would lessen its syndication value as the series was struggling with creating new ideas. Also, NBC had refused to move the show back to Wednesdays. Culp and Cosby had tired of the series and were relieved that it was cancelled.
