Picks and Pans Review: Uptown Saturday Night

UPDATED 07/02/1979 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/02/1979 at 01:00 AM EDT

NBC (8 p.m. ET)

This tryout comedy, based on the 1974 Cosby-Belafonte movie, is passable, especially for fans of slapstick. Cleavon (Blazing Saddles) Little is the wheeler-dealer who meets Francesca Roberts at a disco and wants to boogie with her money.
