I remember Quark coming out sometime after Star Wars.  A science fiction comedy.  I am not too sure people were ready for that then.  3rd Rock from the Sun shows that we are now.

Description:
(Warning: Possible Spoliers)  
 
Quark was an American science fiction sitcom starring Richard Benjamin that aired on NBC. The pilot first aired on May 7, 1977, and the series followed as a mid-season replacement in February 1978. The series was cancelled in April 1978. Quark was created by Buck Henry, co-creator of the legendary spy spoof Get Smart. Despite the series' short run, it has developed a very favorable reputation among science fiction fandom.

The show was set on the United Galaxies Sanitation Patrol Cruiser, an interstellar garbage scow operating out of United Galaxies Space Station Perma 1 in the year 2222. Adam Quark, the main character, works to clean up trash in space - unfortunately for Quark, circumstances frequently dropped adventure into his lap.

In its short run, Quark satirized such science fiction classics as Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Flash Gordon. Three of the episodes were direct satires on classic episodes of Star Trek.

The series picked up one Emmy Award nomination, for costume designer Grady Hunt's work in the episode "All the Emporor's Quasi-Norms, Part 2".
