Became Sanford and Son. I've never seen it but the British version was hilarious! 'You dirty old man'
It was NOT an American remake. The British original version was HILARIOUS and so clever. The actors David Walliams and Matt Lucas were brilliant. However, there's no point in watching it if you're a pearl clutcher.
How on earth did this work? Was it funny? I didn't know this was an American remake.
This was a right royal flop; it didn't even get past pilot episode. 'Rodney you dumbass' and 'Awesome jawsome' would've just sounded weird!

Would have loved to have seen Robert Llewellyn's face when he went to America to see the script and just went straight home! Laugh out loud! - PositronWildhawk
Became 'Threes A Company' in the USA.
