NBC Fall Schedule Promo 1978

The 1978-79 season was, rather infamously, not good for NBC. Although ABC was easily dominating network TV that season, and CBS had a couple of reasonable hits in WKRP in Cincinnati and The White Shadow, nearly every new show on NBC flopped. Among them was Grandpa Goes to Washington, a drama starring Jack Albertson as a down-to-earth professor who runs for office - despite having no prior political experience. The series was one of the many flops NBC had that season, and as a result almost none of it has been seen since its cancellation.
