Oddball sitcom that dealt with a 1950's sitcom family (The Neilsons) who were on the "Sitcom Relocation Program" that relocated to suburbia, 1991. The Duffs were their (almost as strange) neighbors. Written by

A.J. episode did air; show was a Rupert Holmes classic
I adored this show, and so hope that it will eventually show up on DVD. This show, like so many of Rupert Holmes' creations, was a thinking person's show. It used the contrasts in lifestyles between the 50's Nielsons (one of Rupert's little 'in' jokes...Nielsen ratings...get it?) and the 90's Duffs to show the good parts of both. It was well-written, well-acted, satire, and for those of us old enough to remember, used cameos by 50's and 60's stars to heighten interest (Barbara Billingsley, Jim Nabors, etc.). I miss the show...Good, decent programming.
I do have the pilot episode with A.J. McLean on tape (the only ep I have), so it must have aired sometime.
