Does anyone know if this show from, I think, the late 60's early 70's is aired on any channels? I remember it from my childhood on daytime re-runs only.

Roger and Kaye live next door to Eve and Herb. Eve and Herb's daughter Suzie marries Roger and Kaye's son Jerry. This forces the families to be a bit closer than they would prefer, particularly since Jerry and Suzie live in the garage. Written by Ed Sutton {esutton@mindspring.com}

The Hubbards and Buells are the best of friends despite their wildly different lifestyles. Herb Hubbard is a successful lawyer and Eve is a former champion athlete, while Roger Buell is a television writer and his wife Kaye is a poor housekeeper to the point of being lazy. Also, Roger and Kaye's son, Jerry was married to Herb and Eve's daughter, Susie. Sometimes the friendship is tested as both "mothers-in-law" try to help their children as they go through the early stages of their marriage. Written by Brian Washington {Sargebri@earthlink.net}
