Cagney and Lacey are accused of racial prejudice when they investigate a gangland beating
Did You Know?
After three Thursday showings with terrible ratings, Cagney & Lacey was given a one-time shot in a Sunday time slot occupied by Trapper John, M.D. and pulled about the same audiences Trapper John had averaged. However, the competition was extremely weak (a cut-down broadcast of a failed pilot called "The Neighborhood," which had been rejected when an NBC executive watched the two hours in the wrong order, followed by a 30-minute news special), and CBS executives insisted on a major makeover for Cagney & Lacey if it was even to get a partial renewal. Chief among the changes was the recasting of the Cagney character (for the second time); also, the opening sequence was completely re-filmed and re-scored. Finally, CBS decided to give up on "Lou Grant" and give over its time slot to "cagney & Lacey," in an intensely criticized scheduling move. See more
