Fair Exchange was a television comedy that ran from 1962 to 1963 on CBS. It starred Eddie Foy, Jr. and Audrey Christie. The show made a name for Judy Carne, who later appeared with Pete Duel on ABC's Love on a Rooftop and then on NBC's Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In.

The show replaced Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone on CBS's fall schedule in 1962. Twilight Zone, though, would replace Fair Exchange mid-season, albeit in an hour-long format.

Premise

Eddie Walker (Foy) and Tommy Finch (Victor Maddern) were World War II veterans and old friends who decided to have their daughters live in the other's households for a year, since Eddie's daughter Patty (Lynn Loring) wanted to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in Londonmarker. Whilst Patty lived in London with Tommy, his wife Sybil (Diana Chesney) and their son, Neville (Dennis Waterman), their daughter, Heather (Judy Carne) lived with Eddie and Dorothy Walker and their son, also named Tommy, (Flip Mark).

The show focused on the difficulties that Heather and Patty experienced as they lived in each other's families. This was the first hour-long sitcom since the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour, but it was dropped. After mail protested CBS's decision, the network revived Fair Exchange in a half-hour format, but again the series failed in the ratings and was finally cancelled.
