Goodnight, Beantown

That Polaroid Lady (Mariette Hartley) teams up with the pre-Nautilus half of The Incredible Hulk (Bill Bixby) in this series in which Bixby plays a Boston TV anchorman, Matt Cassidy, who has a co-anchor, Jennifer Barnes (Hartley), foisted on him to help boost ratings. On the air, they're rivals; in their personal lives, a love-hate thing develops, thanks in large part to the matchmaking efforts of Jennifer's daughter Susan (Tracey Gold). If this series doesn't last, it won't be CBS's fault; for the new season, the show has been slotted between The Jefferson and Trapper John, M.D. in the networks's blockbuster Sunday night lineup.
