Yet Another Run, Or Return To Fred Silverman's ABC

Mark Evanier tells the story of his Love Boat segment and the various approaches that ABC considered for that show before putting it on the air.

At one point, we're told, ABC under Fred Silverman planned to make it their most titillating show yet, which explains the story Evanier and Dennis Palumbo came up with (a guy trying to lose his virginity), while the version that got on the air was one where "the boy and girl had to have a real relationship that was likely to culminate in wedlock."
