Rare is the pilot with less going for it in concept and execution than "Hank." A true stinker. One's heart goes out to those who produce GOOD scripts and tapes and are told "No" by network suits because they didn't have a favored star.

One good may come of this: the wealthy Mr. Grammer may decide - after smelling this stench week after week - to retire from SB while we still cheer his name and seek his reruns.

He created one comical character - and nothing else. Flinging a perfectly pompous persona from one situation into another may suit the network, for now, but loses Kelsey the respect he once deserved.

With taste that allows him to choose sitcoms like "Hank," one must wonder if he was involved in the decision to let the Diane character dominate the story line in "Cheers," the poster boy of jump the shark decision.
