NBC (8:30-9 p.m. ET)

This series makes one wish for the sophistication of Topper. Ann Jillian jiggles as a deceased glamour queen who haunts her Hollywood mansion, where a loutish husband (Brandon Maggart) now lives with his excruciatingly dumb wife (Georgia Engel of The Mary Tyler Moore Show) and their surly adolescent son (John P. Navin Jr.). A discriminating heavenly body, Jillian appears only to Navin, devoting herself to teaching him about life. This show is prurient and prudish at the same time. (Premiere)
