This week join Jonathan as he has some light fun looking at shows that did a 180 in their premises either mid-season or between seasons: Nichols (NBC, 1971-1972); Going Places (ABC, 1990-1991); and Baywatch Nights (syndication, 1995-1997). A lighthearted look at the ridiculousness that ensues when such drastic changes are made to a program’s premise.
