Did this last more than one season?
10 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

The only thing I really remember about this politically-oriented sitcom was one joke by Richard Crenna. During the 1976 presidential race, in which Jimmy Carter ran against Gerald Ford with Bob Dole as Ford's running mate (yup, he was nationally known even way back then), Crenna comes home from shopping to say that while at the supermarket he'd seen a Carter sticker on a Ford, a Ford sticker on a Chevy, and a Dole sticker on a banana! With that kind of humor, maybe it's no wonder this show didn't last that long. And with that observation, I'm off to the produce market!
