About

From Wikipedia:

All's Fair is an American television situation comedy that aired on CBS from 1976 to 1977. The show co-stars Richard Crenna as a conservative political columnist, Bernadette Peters as a liberal photographer and concerns their romantic mismatch because of age and political opinions and is also a very early role of Michael Keaton as Lanny Wolf. Peters was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her role. Although the show received some good reviews, it lasted only one season.

The show's Production Supervisor was Norman Lear.

In Washington, D.C., an older (49) conservative columnist Richard C. Barrington (Richard Crenna) and a young (23) liberal photographer Charlotte (Charley) Drake (Bernadette Peters) become romantically involved. The complications of their politics and the age difference provide the story lines. They are "separated by politics, generation gap, manners and living styles".

Barrington is a gourmet cook who lives in a luxurious Washington townhouse, and Drake is a vegetarian. Barrington has a girl friend, a literary agent (Salome Jens), when he first meets Drake. The style of the show is "almost constant hysteria, the rapid pacing set to the sounds of argumentative shouting."
