We’ll Think of Something

UNSYMPATHETICALLY SLOW sitcom from the light channel, aired in the Monday 8pm slot and starring SAM “‘TLER!” KELLY as mid-life doleite Les Brooks, desperately trying to come up with money-making schemes rather than getting a job and, you’re way ahead, always failing. Archetypal ‘put-upon’ wife Maureen (MARCIA WARREN) ended up becoming a barmaid to get real cash in. Because back then women only ever worked when their men were unemployed and useless, of course. Commercial break always came as a boon. Title of show mentioned, YES MINISTER-stylee, in every edition, though never as end-of-episode punchline in a show distinctly lacking in jokes. Six episodes and out.
