Getting Together returns. How about a one-man Partridge Family, with Dad taking the Shirley Jones role, and the one kid doesn’t sing? Okay, that’s stretching a bit. Dad is raising his stepdaughter, left to him by his late wife (who dies of 90-minute TV Cancer in the pilot), and is not following accepted norms of raising kids. Being in a rock-and-roll band, for example, is frowned on by Sam’s neighbors. Anyway, this tedious little show only lasted eight weeks, so don’t even worry about it.
