Ratings & Cancellation

"Nanny and the Professor" first aired as a mid-season replacement on January 21, 1970 where it enjoyed initial success due to its Friday night timeslot when it was scheduled between "The Brady Bunch" and "The Partridge Family" (which were shows aimed at similar demographics, largely young children and pre-teens).

The show's ratings suffered in the third season when ABC moved the series to Monday night opposite "Gunsmoke" and "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In."
