Fred & Carol & Fred & Donna was the 27th episode of Sanford and Son. Also the 13th episode of the series' second season, it premiered December 15, 1972. Loosely based on "Steptoe a la Carte," a 1964 episode of the British S&S series forerunner Steptoe and Son, this installment was originally scheduled to air on November 24, 1972, but was bumped forward to December 15.
Two-timing Fred's in the soup when he accidentally double books his dining room table by inviting both his fiancée Nurse Donna and the attractive widowed saleswoman Carol Davis (Kim Hamilton) over for supper on the same evening. Fred must do some fancy "juggling" to avoid catastrophe.
