Tv Season Info

The wife of the rumpled police lieutenant solves murder mysteries while working as a part-time reporter for a weekly newspaper and a full-time mother to a 7-year-old daughter. The series underwent three title changes, first to `Kate Columbo,' then to `Kate the Detective' and finally to `Kate Loves a Mystery.' Even the sleuth's last name was changed (to Callahan) before the show was canceled the same year it premiered.

Critic Reviews for Mrs. Columbo: Season 1

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

Mrs. Columbo may not have been great television, it may have been a cash-in, but it still took a character defined by her absence, talked about and never given her own voice, and for a brief moment at least put her at the center of the story.
