Barney Miller (1975-82)
Captain Barney Miller (Hal Linden) tries to remain sane while leading the 12th Precinct’s detectives: crochety, nearing-retirement Jewish-American Philip K. Fish (Abe Vigoda); naive but goodhearted Polish-American Det. Stanley “Wojo” Wojciehowicz (Max Gail); ambitious, arrogant African-American Det. Ronald “Ron” Nathan Harris (Ron Glass); philosophical, wisecracking Japanese-American Nick Yemana (Jack Soo); and dauntless Puerto Rican Chano Amanguale (Gregory Sierra). He also has to deal with his unapologetically old-school superior, Chief Inspector Frank Luger (James Gregory), and diminutive (and obsequious) Officer Carl Levitt (Ron Carey), who passive-aggressively badgers Miller constantly about being promoted to detective. Amanguale was replaced by intellectual Arthur P. Dietrich (Steve Landesberg) from the third season on. wiki
