MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - If you didn't watch TV in the 1980's, you might not know that Milwaukee legend Bob Uecker starred in a comedy series.
"Mr. Belvedere" has hardly been shown in syndication since it left the ABC prime time lineup in 1990 after five seasons.
Now, Antenna TV says it will add "Mr. Belvedere" and 10 other classic series to its lineup next year. Antenna TV appears on over the air digital sub-channels, and it covers 70 percent of U.S. households.
"Mr. Belvedere" featured Christopher Hewett as an eccentric butler for a family in which Uecker played the father as a sportswriter in the Pittsburgh area.
Uecker -- a Hall of Fame radio announcer for the Milwaukee Brewers -- starred in 114 of the 117 episodes.
"Mr. Belvedere" was not a huge ratings hit, but it was strong enough to stay around for awhile. It's highest rating was 45th in its second season.
