Miscelanious

The Dukes of Hazzard finished in the Nielsen top 20 for four consecutive seasons, finishing at No. 2 in 1981. The Top 20 streak would probably have continued if Duke boy actors Tom Wopat and John Schneider had not decided to sit out the 1983 fall season because of a contract dispute. Wopat and Schneider filed a lawsuit for $25 million against Warner Brothers, alleging that the company shortchanged them on royalties from the $190 million worth of Dukes toys, games, and clothes–sales “considered to be among the most lucrative in TV history.” When Wopat and Schneider left and CBS tried to cast replacement cousins Coy and Vance, The Dukes plummeted from the top 20 and never made it back, making the show a victim of its own success.
