Storyline

Tiny, O-shaped Tony Kleinman and his mate, former professional jock Bernie Widman, still a popular womanizer, co-present a TV talk show in Philadelphia, mainly devoted to sports and athletes of all disciplines. Tony compensates his size by a big mouth, often cleverly phrasing but alas almost as often too quickly yapping, as all too often he only talks himself into more trouble, especially at home, where he faces a well-meaning wife, who happens to be 'always right' more often then a man can stand, especially as she isn't often really wrong, and a tomboy daughter driving anyone to despair, mouthier then him, devious, as assertive and selfish as only spoiled teenage girls can be, and convinced poor devoted dad is the scum of the earth, too embarrassing to take any notice of if it can be helped, and she can get away with an awful lot. Tony's firstborn, Mickey, is a darling boy, and a gifted golfer, but as meek as a lamb, as ambitious as a clam and as assertive as a punching ball: the ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Mark Harmon had been in contention for the role of Tony. However, he was deemed "way too good looking" for the role. Tony Kornheiser, whose life was the basis of the show, was asked to read for the role. But the sportswriter turned the offer down stating he did not want to move to Los Angeles. See more »

Bring it back!
5 June 2006 | by pahlmhSee all my reviews

I was amazed that Listen Up was canceled. I miss the show so much. I enjoyed the chemistry among the characters, and the acting was superb. Will it ever return? Jason Alexander's character made me forget all about 'George'. Jason Alexander was able to portray Tony in a totally different format. Malcolm Jamal Warner also put a lot of distance between 'The Cosby Show' and his other sitcom. Was there ever an option to try another time slot? How many episodes were taped? I would be willing to buy the series on DVD, if possible. I made the mistake of erasing the season off of my DVR. Unfortunately, I didn't know that it wasn't going to return. What can be done to bring this show back?
