    I read that the producers and writers were so frustrated by the behavior of many of the kids offstage (Adam Rich, etc) they decided to end the series despite it still being a strong ratings winner. The producers finally threw up their hands and basically said "it's not worth it."

    Heh, that's funny. I don't think any TV show has ever had such a train wreck of a cast like this one. It seems like the only normal actresses were Nancy & Elizabeth. Tho I still say Dick Van Patten is insane for inventing dog food that he suggests people can eat too. At least Willie Aames cleaned up his life.
