Welcome to The Man in the Family guide at TV Tome. This short-lived summer series focussed on Sal Bavasso, an Italian-American ne'er-do-well who reluctantly promised his dying father that he would move back to Brooklyn in order to keep Carmine's Deli in the family. (The audience regretted it too.)
Sal tries to fulfill his promise to his dead father, but Vinnie and Cha Cha come up with a temptingly wild business scheme.
Sal faces suspicious police and an angry family in his valiant attempt to reconcile with Christina, the woman he left at the altar.
Sal turns down first-date sex with an attractive woman.
To impress a woman, Sal pretends nephew Robby is his son; Angie dates a cobbler.
Sal arranges a date with Annie for a mobster, then has to explain why she doesn't like him or his marriage proposal.
The Bavassos make some hindsight adjustments when they reenact an attempted burglary for a ""reality TV"" show.
