Keeping it all in the family: Rob Reiner & Penny Marshall on Good Heavens (1976)

 A while back, we took a look at Carl Reiner's short-lived ABC series, Good Heavens, in which Reiner played Mr. Angel, who helped random folks each week. What might've been a bad sign was the fact that it premiered on Leap Year day, February 29, 1976.

Eight nights later, Reiner is joined by son Rob (All in The Family) and daughter-in-law Penny Marshall (Laverne & Shirley) in "Take me Out to The Ballgame". Tige Andrews (ex-The Mod Squad) & Sandra Gould (ex-Bewitched) also guest star.

The chemistry between father & son in their scenes together speaks volumes of what might've been had ABC actually done a better job promoting the show.

No rating. Just a public service.
