Uncle Buck is an American sitcom television series starring Kevin Meaney, based on the 1989 film of the same name. The series aired on CBS from September 10, 1990 to March 9, 1991 during the 1990–91 season.


Kevin Meaney starred as Buck, a slob who drinks, smokes, and is named the guardian of his nieces, Tia and Maizy, and nephew Miles, after their parents, Bob (Buck's brother) and Cindy (Buck's sister-in-law), are suddenly killed in a car accident.

Critical reception

The show was panned by critics. After airing on Monday nights for two months, due to competition with MacGyver and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the latter of which premiered on the same day, it was moved to Friday, in an attempt by CBS to establish a comedy night swapping with Evening Shade. The ratings dropped from there with strong competition from ABC's Top 20 hit Full House, and it was cancelled shortly after, having aired only 16 episodes and leaving several filmed episodes unaired.
