An elderly hillbilly and his friend are rescued from a life of poverty by a long-lost family member who married into wealth in Beverly Hills but is now doing social battle with her late husband's snobby family.
Sitcom about a bumptious Irish family, stirred up by the return home of the flamboyant daughter. She moves back in with her crusty father, conservative older brother, and his children. His son is a priest and his daughter is a shy Catholic High School student. The show was consistently funny and the performances, led by Barnard Hughes as the patriarch and Christine Ebersole as Kit were dead on. Ebersole's flashy, sarcastic persona is perfect for a sitcom; it's a shame this didn't last longer.
