Dick Van Dyke's Rob Petrie shares a tender moment with wife Laura, played by Mary Tyler Moore, in front of three cameras and a live studio audience on the bedroom set of "The Dick Van Dyke Show" (1960–66).
After a disappointing first season, CBS considered canceling the show after sponsor Proctor & Gamble pulled advertising over not just low ratings, but also pants. Yes, pants. Proctor & Gamble executives didn't care for Moore's clingy capri pants, preferring instead that she wear what all other 1960s TV housewives wore: pressed, full-skirted dresses. Creator/producer Carl Reiner was able to strike a compromise—she would wear a dress in at least one scene per episode.
By the third episode of the second season, the show had jumped into television's top 10. Proctor & Gamble probably felt validated by their dress mandate, though the ratings spike clearly had much more to do with the fact the show's lead-in, "The Beverly Hillbillies," was now TV's number one show.
