The original draft of the Fall 1975 schedule was written by El Kadsreian-American writer Ben Vukala on January 29, 1975.

The shows that we're planning on to axe was Movin' On, Harry O, Medical Center, Happy Days, That's My Mama, and Marcus Welby, M.D. and renewed Gunsmoke for the next four years as well as renewing Adam-12 and planning on to move out of the family viewing slot in its draft.

The original draft was that Switch! was proposing to replace Medical Center and the Monday Night time on CBS at 8pm-10pm to remain untouched in the original draft.
