I remember watching Working Stiffs when a cable channel (can’t remember which one) aired reruns briefly in the late 80s or early 90s (again, foggy memory).
Pretty much a formulaic working-class comedy with Jim Belushi and Michael Keaton.
That proably would have been TV Land, and it was only because at that time the channel could only afford to screen Paramount series, which this was! Belushi and Keaton had supporting roles on their resumes, but this would be the first lead roles for both!
This would be the final episode of Big Shamus Little Shamus. As I pointed out last week, only 2 episodes were ever broadcast!
