Mrs. Columbo's name in the original series was rarely referred to, but it was Rose. Not Kate. Perhaps her full name was Katherine Rose Columbo and the Lieutenant merely preferred to call her Rose. See more »
Kate Mulgrew was born April 29, 1955 and hadn't yet turned 24, by the time the show made its debut in 1979. The character of Mrs. Columbo had been referenced since Lieutenant Columbo's first appearance in 1968, when Mulgrew would've been 13 years old. See more »
Sorry, but this show didn't work at all, and a '2' is a generous vote. If you watch enough "Columbo", any time he is on the phone with her, she is given as a homemaker, not a reporter, and on top of that, she's not very bright. On "An Exercise in Fatality", she calls him at the office of the killer, and they discuss what to cook for the family guests for dinner. He then tells her what to do, i.e. call the Chinese restaurant, make the order and he would get it after work on the way home. Does that honestly sound like she has the wherewithal to find the answer to some caper? Not in my opinion, and I'm sure a majority of the readers of this would have to agree. She's just not that intelligent!
