NBC (9:30-10 p.m. ET)

Extending the comic dourness of the Detective Dietrich character he played on Barney Miller, Landesberg lampoons targets ranging from talk show shrinks to politicians. Although charming and relaxed in this comedy pilot, Steve sometimes gets a little too relaxed, setting up lead-ins that never culminate in a punch line.
