Unlike Amanda's—the ABC sitcom based on public television's Fawlty Towers—the premise of this frisky sitcom, taken tooth and toenail from the British comedy Tom, Dick & Harriet, has lost none of its sparkle. Harold (The Sting, The Front Page) Gould stars as Jonah Foot, an elderly New Hampshire who, eager to live it up after the death of his bluenose wife, moves in with son and daughter-in-law in the Big Apple. Kenneth Gilman and Diana Canova co-star. (Premiere)
