Mrs. G. Goes To College (later retitled The Gertrude Berg Show) is an American situation comedy which aired on CBS from October 4, 1961 to April 5, 1962. The series starred Emmy Award-winning actress Gertrude Berg.
Having previously starred in the long-running radio and television series The Goldbergs, Gertrude Berg returned to episodic television as Sarah Green, a 62-year-old widow who enters college. The character of Sarah Green (very similar to "Molly Goldberg") had been previously introduced to viewers as "Aunt Sarah" on Jackie Cooper's Hennesey sitcom on CBS earlier in 1961. English actor Cedric Hardwicke played Professor Crayton, and popular character actress Mary Wickes portrayed Maxfield. Skip Ward was cast as Joe Caldwell, and Marion Ross appeared as Berg's daughter, Susan Green. Leo Penn appeared as Jerry Green.
The series aired at the 9:30 Eastern slot on Wednesdays, under the sponsorship of General Foods, following CBS's Checkmate. Mrs. G. Goes to College aired during the second half of ABC's Hawaiian Eye and NBC's Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall. Halfway through the first season, the series was retitled The Gertrude Berg Show. However, reviews for the series were unfavorable and ratings were moderate leading CBS to cancel the series after one season.
