Hudson Street

Filmed at Sony Studios, Culver City, by Katie Face Prods. and TriStar TV. Executive producers, Tony Danza, Randi Mayem Singer; producer, Walter Barnett; director, James Burrows; creator-writer, Singer; camera, Ken Lamkin; editor, Robert Bramwell; art director, Bob Breen; sound, Gordon Klimuck; music, Jonathan Wolff. TX:Cast: Tony Danza, Lori Loughlin, Jerry Adler, Christine Dunford, Frank J. Galasso, Tom Gallop, Shareen Mitchell, Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter, Dorothy Hack, Mark Denis. Looks like irrepressible Tony Danza has booked into another long-runner in the role of Tony Canetti, New Jersey police detective who has stayed clear of women since his divorce a year ago. Randi Mayem Singer's script has bumps, but it also has winning characters and laughs. She's given the police beat as her assignment. They're doomed.

TX:Cast: Tony Danza, Lori Loughlin, Jerry Adler, Christine Dunford, Frank J. Galasso, Tom Gallop, Shareen Mitchell, Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter, Dorothy Hack, Mark Denis. Looks like irrepressible Tony Danza has booked into another long-runner in the role of Tony Canetti, New Jersey police detective who has stayed clear of women since his divorce a year ago. Randi Mayem Singer’s script has bumps, but it also has winning characters and laughs. She’s given the police beat as her assignment. They’re doomed.

Secondary characters include ex-wife Lucy (Shareen Mitchell), who shares a good scene with Canetti and their son Mickey (Frank J. Galasso); station lieutenant Al Teischer (Jerry Adler); all-out (almost cartoon time) feminist cop Kirby McIntire (Christine Dunford); and officer Regelski (Tom Gallop). The mix works.

Danza gives Canetti his little-boy-confused combo of enthusiast, realist and romanticist — it’s familiar and dependable. Police station antics are OK, and dad-son shenanigans are successful.

Loughlin’s fresh and attractive as the flip side of Canetti’s personality; there’s a whole world of conservative-vs.-liberal humor to be mined in weeks ahead.

There also are references to their age difference, another field on which to play. Another plus is Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter’s cynical waiter.

Program has a traditional sitcom feel. Art director Bob Breen’s work is able and helpful, and James Burrows directs with his usual assurance. Looks like “Hudson Street,” preceded by “Roseanne” and followed by “Home Improvement,” should be right at home.

Hudson Street

(Tues. (19), 8:30-9 p.m., ABC)

Production: Confirmed reactionary Canetti is tricked into meeting obits writer Melanie Clifford (Lori Loughlin), a radical who's unswervingly currently correct. They get along well enough when they're not sparring, she beats him at pool, and they're attracted to each other.
