Default Tournament Round Two: Barney Miller vs. The Love Boat

Barney Miller is the only long-running comedy in history that waited until the final season to win its first Emmy for best comedy. Hal Linden plays the titular character who is the boss captain at the 12th Precinct police station. Max Gail (Wojo) and Ron Glass (Harris) are the only other regulars who appeared in every season. Barney Miller aired 8 seasons on ABC from 1975-1982. Starting out was Abe Vigoda as Fish, who later got spun off into his own show. Gregory Sierra played Chano for the first two seasons. Barbara Barrie played Barney's wife Elizabeth. The show started out as a mix between his home life and precinct, but the home part was quickly dropped. Jack Soo played Nick Yemana. He died near the end of season 5. Steve Landesburg played Arthur Dietrich, who became a regular after Fish left. Also starring Ron Carey as Levitt and James Gregory as Inspector Luger.
How it got this far
1st Round: defeated Young Sheldon 8-4

Since this site considers The Love Boat a sitcom, it made my tournament although I consider it a light drama. The Love Boat aired nine seasons and 249 episodes on ABC from 1977-1986, outlasting Gavin MacLeod's previous successful sitcom The Mary Tyler Moore Show. He starred as Captain Merrill Stubing on a cruise ship. There were several famous guest stars who played the passengers. Captain Stubing's crew was purser Gopher Smith (Fred Grandy), bartender Isaac Washington (Ted Lange), doctor Adam Bricker (Bernie Kopell), and cruise director Julie McCoy (Lauren Tewes). A good addition who became a regular in season 3 was Merrill's daughter Vicki Stubing (Jill Whelan). Lauren Tewes left at the end of season 7, Pat Klous replaced her as sister and new cruise director Judy McCoy. In season 8 Ted McGinley also joined the cast as photographer Ace Evans.
1st Round: defeated Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. 8-5
