Last Question: What short lived TV series starred John Ritter as a cop who inherited a decrepit apartment building?

Answer: Hooperman

Hooperman ran for two seasons on ABC, from 1987 to 1989. It was a comedy-drama, created by Steven Bochco and Terry Louise Fisher who were the team responsible for creating L.A. Law. Bochco had also produced Hill Street Blues, and after Hooperman, would also go on to produce Doogie Howswer, M.D. and NYPD Blue.

In Hooperman, John Ritter played a San Francisco plainclothes police officer Harry Hooperman. Hooperman inherits the rundown apartment building he lives in when his elderly landlady is killed in a robbery. He also inherits her temperamental pet Jack Russell terrier named Bijoux. Due to the demands of his job as a police officer, he hires Susan Smith (played by Debrah Farentino) to be the building manager, and the pair become romantically involved throughout the first season.

The music of the theme song was composed by Law & Order’s Mike Post.
