Broadcast History

The first episode of "The Feather and Father Gang" aired on December 6, 1976. After a three-month hiatus, it returned to the ABC lineup on March 7, 1977, as a weekly series beginning with its second episode, airing at 10:00 p.m. on Mondays until April 4, 1977.

It then went into hiatus again, returning to the air on Friday, May 13, 1977, when ABC broadcast its pilot, "Never Con a Killer, (which was filmed to run as a 90-minute made-for-television movie) as its sixth episode.

Eight days later, on May 21, 1977, the show returned to 60-minute episodes and settled into a new time slot at 10:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

Criticized as a derivative and pale imitation of the CBS series, "Switch" and handicapped by its lack of a consistent broadcast day & time, "The Feather and Father Gang" garnered disappointing ratings and was cancelled after 14 episodes; its last original episode aired on July 30, 1977, and the last rerun in prime time was on August 6, 1977.
