Set in "Manhattan South" (New York City's Thirteenth Precinct), the series is named for Lt. Theodore "Theo" Kojak (Telly Savalas in his most famous role). He might not observe all the niceties when it comes to his $240-a-week-after-taxes job, but he gets the job done, ''ya dig?'' A Greek-American who pronounces the "w" in "sword," this cop knows who Confucius is, and has read Edgar Allen Poe. He grew up in a "sewer" he now wants to clean up, but he's also sympathetic to the junkies, whores, stoolies, and other damaged people he encounters. After all, he grew up alongside them, in the same neighborhood. Also added to the mix are members of his squad: wet-behind-the-ears Det. Crocker (Kevin Dobson), slovenly Det. Stavros (George Savalas), and fretful Cpn. [=McNeil=] (Dan Frazer).

* HardboiledDetective: Kojak's speech was clearly inspired by a lot of hard-boiled fiction, such as when he forces a guy to jump from a pier, then tells a subordinate, "Look, there's some ''debris'' floatin' in the river. Would you fish it out before it pollutes the entire eastern seaboard?"

'''''Kojak''''' was a PoliceProcedural drama that aired on Creator/{{CBS}} from 1973-78. Set in New York City's Thirteenth Precinct, the series revolved around the efforts of the incorruptible Lt. Theo Kojak (Telly Savalas in his most famous role), a tough, bald policeman who was fond of lollipops and for using the CatchPhrase, "Who loves ya, baby?" Lt. Kojak displayed a dark, cynical wit and a tendency to bend the rules in order to bring a criminal to justice. In the early episodes of the series, Kojak smoked heavily; in order to reflect the anti-smoking sentiment gaining momentum on American TV, the writers decided that Kojak had quit smoking. He began sucking on lollipops as a substitute, which became a trademark of the character.
