Robin Leach (Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous) hosts an hour-long tribute to decent, determined folks who have done well by themselves and others, including Oseola McCarty, the Hattiesburg, Miss., laundress who donated $150,000 to the University of Southern Mississippi, and Heidi von Beltz, a stuntwoman paralyzed in an accident and determined to walk again. They are all courageous, but Leach gratingly informs us that the show will also restore our patriotism. If he had his finger on the pulse of the people, he'd be hosting Lifestyles of Two-Income Families.
