A few years back, I

Daniel Radosh

A few years back, I wrote an article about the genesis of popular TV shows for the first and only issue of Nick at Nite magazine. Here's a graf I highlighted from a book called First You Laugh:

"Actually, after CBS had nixed the first pilot, Head of the Family, Reiner and company had kicked around a few other titles — Double Trouble, Two Loves Have I, and Mommy! Daddy's Home — but they all sounded too dull, too cute, or too much like a soap opera. Eventually, Reiner and CBS settled on The Dick Van Dyke Show. They figured that if the show was a hit, that's what everyone would wind up calling it anyway."

Finally, Romenesko is officially just Romenesko.
