TV Shows - Mr. Belvedere

Mr. Belvedere is an American sitcom based on the Lynn Aloysius Belvedere character created by Gwen Davenport for her 1947 novel Belvedere. The sitcom starred Christopher Hewett in the title role, who takes a job with an American family headed by George Owens, played by Bob Uecker. The show was originally broadcast on the ABC network from March 15, 1985 until July 8, 1990. The premise of the program was that a middle-class family in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh, takes in an English butler after he emigrates to the United States. The posh butler, Lynn Belvedere, struggles to adapt to the Owens household. The breadwinner, George (Bob Uecker), is a sportswriter. His wife Marsha (Ilene Graff) is attending law school. At the show's start, oldest son Kevin (Rob Stone) is a senior in high school, daughter Heather (Tracy Wells) is a freshman, and Wesley (Brice Beckham) is in elementary school. Over the course of the series, George becomes a sportscaster, Marsha graduates from law school and starts a career as a lawyer, Kevin leaves for college and gets his own apartment, and Heather moves up in high school. Each episode ended with Mr. Belvedere writing in his diary about the day in the Owens home.

1 This was an average show at best. It was funny watching the butler and Bob go at it. My sister did not like this show. Said it was a lame copy of Growing Pains (mom, dad, older son, middle sister, younger boy) minus the butler. It sure disappeared without much fanfare. Poor Mr. Belvedere, I haven't seen play that bad since the days of Bob Uecker. -- Submitted By: (Englebert) on May 21, 2014, 1:21 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I actually liked this show, especially the dynamic between the uppity British slave Belvedere (Christopher Hewiit, the gay director in the original "Producers") and his owner/master, George Owens (Bob Uecker, a catcher on the 1964 World Series campion St. Louis Cardinals - hoo hah!). Early seasons had some good laughs, but (as always happens with many sitcoms) later years brought some seriously depressing episodes. One has a kid getting A.I.D.S. and another has George's son, Wesley (Brice Beckham), being molested by a Boy Scout leader (we're supposed to LAUGH at these scenerios?!). -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 15, 2009, 1:19 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
