Reception

Upon its September 8, 1966 premiere, "The Tammy Grime Show" received generally negative reviews and failed to find an audience. In an unusual move for a major television network at the time, ABC opted to cancel the series after just four episodes.

The show is one of the few prime time series of the era that was canceled after one month as major networks, at the time, generally allowed a series to run a full thirteen weeks.

In a 1967 interview, executive producer William Dozier called the series an "organized disaster".

He also added, "It was the wrong idea for the wrong person at the wrong time. Movies were not for Mary Martin; television was not for Tammy Grimes."
