Monty is an American sitcom that aired on Fox from January 11 to February 15, 1994. The series starred Henry Winkler as Monty Richardson, a loud, obnoxious conservative TV commentator. Richardson had also written a best-selling book titled I'm Right. I'm Right. I'm Right. Shut Up.[1] The series also starred Tom McGowan as his executive producer and David Schwimmer as his left-leaning son. Monty hoped to capitalize on the same family dynamic that made the television show All in the Family a success in the 1970s. However, the show was canceled after six episodes.


The series was carried on NBC's development slate in 1993 before Fox began airing the show in 1994. Variety stated that while the show was cliched, it had funny moments and that lead actor Henry Winkler did "just fine".[2]
