> Description 
This show was Dick Van Dyke's come back into television after pursing movie roles, following the highly sucessful run of the Dick Van Dyke Show.

In this incarnation he was Dick Preston, a talk show host and later a soap-opera actor. The show focused on his work and his home life with wife Jenny (Hope Lange) and daughter Annie (Angela Powell). The show ran on CBS from 1971-1974.

For the first two seasons, the Prestons lived in Arizona. Dick hosted a local talk/variety show called "The Dick Preston Show." His sister/secretary was "Mike" Preston, and he and Jenny's best friends was Bernie Davis and his wife Carol. Dick's boss was Ted Atwater, a money-greedy type of man.

For the last season, Dick, Jenny, and Annie left Arizona for Hollywood, where Dick got an acting job on the soap opera "Those Who Care." New characters were Richard and Connie Richardson. Sadly, when the first format was just kicking up, the second format came in and caused the ratings to decline. The second format was made because of the fact that Carl Reiner left the show after 1973 because of a dispute.
