[show]When CBS canceled the show after one season, Sheldon Leonard traveled to Procter & Gamble's main headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, to make a personal plea for sponsorship, hoping it would sway CBS toward renewal. Procter & Gamble agreed to sponsor half a season. Eventually, Lorillard Tobacco Company, makers of Kent Cigarettes, agreed to pick up the other half, and the show was picked up by CBS for a second season. Ironically, when the show went off the air on its own five years later, CBS was doing the pleading for the show to continue.
- Ann Morgan Guilbert was pregnant during the first season. Since her pregnancy was not written into the show, great pains were taken to conceal that fact.
- Danny Thomas ultimately recommended Mary Tyler Moore for the part of Laura, remembering auditioning her for his show the previous year.
