in New York, this loud sitcom was the story of Dr. Steven Mitchell, a neurotic, divorced psychologist
living in Manhattan with his wimpy young son, Danny, and his obnoxious father,
Al. A used-car salesman, Al had recently separated from his wife,
Helen, and Steven was trying to get them back together so that he could
get reduce the rather considerable amount of hostility at home. Despite their underlying
love for each other, whenever Steven and Al were together, the insults
and putdowns flew fast and furious. Also
seen were Christine, the attractive psychologist with whom Steven had a
joint practice; Lisa, their sexy but somewhat eccentric secretary/receptionist;
Larry, his married brother, who was more than happy to have their
overpowering father living with Steven; and Pete, Al's buddy, who seemed
to spend more time at Steven's home than at his own. Each episode ended with
flubbed moments from takes of scenes aired behind the closing credits.
