Picks and Pans Review: Mr. Belvedere

ABC (Friday, March 15, 8:30 p.m. ET)

Yet another show about a male housekeeper. Unlike Who's the Boss? and Charles in Charge, the man-maid in this one is distinctly over 21, less a hunk and more a butler from the Sebastian Cabot school of service with a sneer. Christopher Hewett, a good actor (never mind the fact that he replaced Tattoo on Fantasy Island last season), plays a British butler who comes to the Owens house, wins the hearts of its three kids and a job over the objections of their father, Bob (Lite beer) Uecker. Mr. Belvedere tickles that fine line between low-key and mediocre. Either way, it's not great.
