NBC (9-11 p.m. ET)

A group of senior citizens desert an oppressive nursing home in a geriatric Great Escape. The cast, including Strother Martin, Donald Pleasance, Lou Jacobi, Jeanette Nolan and Larry Storch, is sprightly. The script is not: The antics seem too flippant against a backdrop of death and depression.
