Goodnight Beantown

By Wikipedia

Goodnight, Beantown was a critically acclaimed but short-lived situation comedy that aired on CBS for two brief seasons in 1983 and 1984.

The series starred Bill Bixby as Matt Cassidy and Mariette Hartley as Jennifer Barnes, two news anchors at a fictional Boston television station. Matt is a longtime fixture at WYN-TV, but when the ratings for his news broadcast begin to drop, the station pairs the reluctant host with a female co-anchor. The series follows their rocky relationship. Co-stars included Tracey Gold and George Coe

Bixby and Hartley had previously worked together in a fondly-remembered episode of Bixby's The Incredible Hulk, and at the time of making Goodnight, Beantown, Hartley was appearing in a popular series of television commercials for Polaroid cameras with James Garner.

The series first aired in the spring of 1983 for a limited run of five episodes. When it returned in the fall, it lasted only 13 more episodes before being cancelled due to low ratings.
