Series Summary:

Comedian Steve Martin produced this comedy about a slightly offbeat family, which was turned down by one network (NBC) and then had a short and unsuccessful run on another (CBS). Martin Crane had just arrived in Seattle to take a job as a commentator for station KMRT-TV. His regular spot on the station's evening news was called "Domestic Life," and dealt with the humorous side of home and family life. He certainly had a lot to talk about! His wife Candy was a sucker for other people's problems, and vaguely dissatisfied with their own limited finances. Daughter Did was a typical, semicontrollable 15-year-old. Harold, their chubby ten-year-old son, talked like a businessman, had an office in his room, and had already netted thousands from wise investments. In some ways he was more mature than his parents, though he still wanted a hug and a kiss when he gave them a loan.

Martin's life was usually in an uproar both at home and at the station, where Cliff and Jane were fellow reporters and Rip Steele--an ex-cowboy star of "B" movies--was the colorful, guitar-strumming station owner.
