90 Bristol Court (rotating sitcoms)

     (NBC Primetime, 1964 - 1965)

     ["90 Bristol Court" was an umbrella title for a series of three
      different sitcoms set in the same apartment complex, produced 
      by Revue Studios and aired on NBC, back-to-back Monday nights; 

      No doubt this brainstorm came from a network programmer who
      thought it was a clever way to dominate an entire evening's 
      lineup. Since it only lasted 1/2 season, he was obviously 
      wrong about that :-)

      The individual sitcoms were

      "Karen"; "Tom, Dick & Mary"; and "Harris Against The World",
       the last of which starred Jack Klugman]
