The show I remember was called "The Super" starring Richard S. Castellano and, although your information doesn't show it, I could have sworn the son was played by Bruce (a/k/a Bruno) Kirby and that there was a wife and son in the picture, too. The best thing I remember is Catellano's character swatting the kid in the back of the head for doing or saying something stupid and Kirby's great comeback line: "Hey Pop!" Castellano was always one of my favorite (if not most favorite) character actor. He had the down-to-earth, guy next door, everyman quality that made you relate to him. He could make something as mundane as teaching the future Godfather to fry sausages something entertaining. He was a big bear of a guy with a heart of gold. He died much MUCH too young.
