David Grossman and his team of volunteer docents in the Mill Valley Library's History Room are rarely stumped.
When they were approached late last month to find out the location of the purported home (in the photo and video of the show's opening sequence – both above) of the main character of ABC's short-lived sitcom The Ted Knight Show, they determined that it was not in Mill Valley. The show's storyline had protagonist Henry Rush of the Too Close for Comfort spin-off moving from San Francisco to Mill Valley to take over the Marin Bugler newspaper.
But if it's not in Mill Valley, where is the house located?
"We're not sure," Grossman says. "We think it's in Marin, but we don't know exactly where."
So we're turning to you. Do you know where this house is located?
The Ted Knight Show lasted only one season, airing in 1986 but ending when Knight, who had been battling colon cancer, passed away in August 1986. The show had been an update of Too Close for Comfort, which aired from 1980 to 1983 and featured Knight's character Henry Rush as a conservative cartoonist who pens the Cosmic Cow comic strip.
