Picks and Pans Review: Madman of the People

UPDATED 10/03/1994 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 10/03/1994 at 01:00 AM EDT

NBC (Thursdays, 9:30 p.m. ET)


Tart sitcom curmudgeon Dabney Coleman returns as Jack Buckner, an outspoken, vinegary magazine columnist. Ah, man's highest calling! Unfortunately the job description is being utilized in one of the season's worst shows. Our dubiously drawn journalist is at loggerheads with the magazine's new publisher, who is his daughter (Cynthia Gibb). He doesn't approve of her editorial policies or her boyfriend. The atmosphere of this impoverished sitcom is canned and phony. The jokes are noxious.
