One Day at a Time (1975–1984)
The new One Day at a Time breaks from that pattern. Schneider 2.0 is comical in his obliviousness, but he's not designed to be a blatant scene-stealer. The writers and Grinnell understand that this show is about Penelope, her family, and their experience. Everything else - including the bobo who lives upstairs - has to come second. One Day at a Time 2017 is about the Alvarez's' world. And Schneider? He's just living in it."
