I am appalled that NBC would air "Me and Mrs. C" at all...

July 06, 1986

I am appalled that NBC would air "Me and Mrs. C" at all, not to mention in the time slot previously held by "227." Did the network think the two shows had comparable value and appeal? Well, it's mistaken if it did! The black female character, cast as an ex-con, was referred to and talked to like a disease, or something dirty. All the white characters, including Mrs. C, were patronizing, negative, thin and downright stupid. I actually had a headache after watching the first 10 minutes of this distasteful show.
