September 19, 1995

Tony Danza—who always seems to play a sitcom character named Tony—continues the tradition in this romantic comedy. This time Danza is cast as Tony Canetti, a conservative cop and divorced, part-time father. In the opener, an office phone call leads to a blind date. Enter Lori Loughlin (Full house) as liberal reporter Melanie Clifford. True to sitcom standards, Tony and Melanie are opposites who attract—even though they can barely stand each other. When they're not flirting, they're trading barbs, generating a will-they-or-won't-they tension. (TV Guide)
