The Black Sheep Squadron TV show was a 60 minute action series on NBC that was actually a continuation of the series "Baa Baa Black Sheep". The nurses on the Black Sheep's island became regular fixtures on the series, adding love interests and an opportunity for more "partying" to the show.

Black Sheep Squadron Trivia
The show under it's original title, "Baa Baa Black Sheep" was canceled after the first season. NBC had terrible failures with most of its new 1977/78 series and decided to bring this series back under the new title, "Black Sheep Squadron".
The nurses added to the series in this second season were often referred to as "Pappy's Lambs". They were, of course, the most attractive bunch of nurses that the military has ever seen! The main reason for adding them to the floundering series was to attract some audience away from the show's time slot competitor on ABC, "Charlie's Angels (1976)".
One of the "Lambs", Nurse Nancy Gilmore was played by Nancy Conrad, Robert Conrad's daughter!
While adding the nurses didn't save the series for long, the show did receive a few accolades during these final episodes! It was nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe in 1978. The Emmy nomination was for "Outstanding Achievement in Film Sound Editing for a Series" and the Golden Globe for "Best Actor (Robert Conrad) in a drama series".
