Columbo flipped the detective show formula from “Whodunnit?” to “Howcatchem?” Watch the murder, then watch the murderer sweat it out. Columbo – with his trademark rumpled trench coat, crumpled notes, and beat-up ‘59 Peugeot – with his ingenuous demeanor, nonetheless tightens the screws! Peter Falk won four Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Homicide Detective, Lieutenant Columbo. Directors include Stephen Spielberg, Ben Gazzara, and Jonathan Demme. Oh, uh…and one more thing. Look for killer guest stars like Ruth Gordon, Larry Storch, Myrna Loy, Janet Leigh, Blythe Danner, and Johnny Cash.
Catch Columbo every Saturday at 10AM/9c and 8PM/7c.
