ABC yanks 'Head of Class'

December 07, 1990|By David Zurawik

ABC is pulling the plug on "Head of the Class" and replacing it with a new comedy starring Randy Quaid and Jonathan Winters.

The last telecast of "Head of the Class" will be Dec. 25, ABC said yesterday. On Jan. 8, it will be replaced by "Davis Rules," a sitcom that stars Quaid as an elementary school teacher promoted to principal against his better judgment. Quaid plays a single parent with three children. Winters plays Quaid's eccentric father.

"Davis Rules" will air Tuesdays at 8:30 between "Who's the Boss?" and "Roseanne." It is produced by Carsey-Werner, the same company that produces "Roseanne."

An ABC spokesman said "Head of the Class" may return to the schedule at some future time, but there were no immediate plans.
