“Incredibly, in light of what they’d sacrificed, Hankin and Ross were dumped after the second show. Lily Tomlin held out for one more, was snapped up by “Laugh In” and rode off into history. By the fifth show, the only surviving cast member – now the star of the show – was [David] Steinberg. A little later, ABC applied euthanasia.” – Tony Hendra on The Committee and Music Scene, “Going Too Far”. Chapter 8.
