Picks and Pans Review: Buffalo Bill

UPDATED 06/06/1983 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 06/06/1983 at 01:00 AM EDT

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

Dabney Coleman plays an egotistical TV talk show host in Buffalo, N.Y. In the premiere episode of this 13-week summer comedy series, Bill tastelessly touts his talent after the death of a network anchorman. Coleman has a fine comic sense, and the show's creators, Tom Patchett and Jay Tarses, have given the script the same light touch that they gave the old Bob Newhart Show. Too bad NBC doesn't agree: Mr. Bill's option has not been picked up for the fall.
