Mr. Belvedere

Series Summary
Very loosely based on a 1940s movie character created by Clifton Webb, this family sitcom is set in the suburban Pittsburgh home of the Owens family, where dapper English housekeeper Lynn Belvedere draws on a history of service to such distinguished figures as Winston Churchill to keep things running smoothly. With father George Owens, a busy sports columnist, and mom Marsha trying to juggle challenging schedules as both a homemaker and law student, it falls to Mr. Belvedere to serve as adviser to their three kids: teenagers Kevin and Heather, plus 8-year-old Wesley.

  • Though the first episode of Mr. Belvedere indicates that the basic format is fertile ground for humor, its creators should beware believing that a benign laugh track means they have been funny. Show More

  • Hewett does about as well as possible in a half-hour that is so dull and insultingly bad that you can't tell the adults from the kids. Show More

  • When [Uecker] and Hewett trade barbs, they elevate the material far beyond the way it would read on the printed page. Down the line, however, for this show to sustain, the writing and the plotting will have to show a bit more originality and flash than it does tonight. [15 Mar 1985] Show More
