Show Summary

After four seasons as the feisty, hot blooded waitress at Mel's diner on Alice, Flo "Kiss My Grits" Castleberry got her own place to run. While passing through her hometown of Cowtown, Texas, on her way to a job in Houston, she impulsively buys a rundown old roadhouse she remembered from her rambunctious youth and becomes determined to make it a viable business. Not used to being the boss, Flo had her troubles running the place, renamed Flo's Yellow Rose. Earl, the bartender, hated the idea of working for a woman, and Farley was the obnoxious skinflint who held the mortgage. Les was the resident piano player and Randy the mechanic who worked at the garage located next door. Being back home meant spending time with Mama, in whose raucous image Flo was molded, and with an introverted, clutzy sister, Fran; and long-lost best friend Miriam. Wendell was Fran's fiance, the owner of a feed supply business, and Chester was a regular customer at the Yellow Rose.moreless

  • You other reviewers don't know what your talking about.

    Now, I will admitt that back then show weren't consistant. They would vary, and you'd never know if you were getting a good episode or a bad.

    Now, I loved Alice. I thought it was so funny and Flo was my favorite, and I also loved Flo. Now you guys seem to be under the impression that this was cancelled because it was a crappy, but thats not true. Flo's first season was one of the most watched shows of that time, it was in the top ten. The problem was that for the second season CBS moved its time slot around without proper advertisment. It's ratings plumeted because no one knew when it was on. If CBS had left it in its original timeslot OR advertised it's new one it probably would have last as long as Alice, if not longer!moreless
  • why dear god why?

    as terrible as alice was, why on god's green earth would anyone think it deserved a spin off. i am not sure if i even saw more than a couple of episodes, but i do not think more than a couple ever made it to air. it just goes to show how intelligent network execs thought the television watching public was.
  • The Words to the Theme Song!

    Rowdy redhead headin' for the big time

    Lookin' like a Texas sequined star

    Makin' eyes at every tight-jeaned cowboy

    Sassin' good old boys around the bar

    Flo's Yellow Rose

    Flashin' neon, every trucker knows

    The door is always open, and the beer is always cold

    At Flo's Yelloe Rose

    (and the end song was a countryish instrumental)
  • Why???

    When supporting characters in hit shows become very popular and are spun off into their own shows the results are often disastrous. Such was the case with Flo. The character of FLo was a wisecracking waitress on the show Alice and her signature phrase was "Kiss My Grits." Somebody got the bright idea that it would be funny to spin FLo off and send her back to her hometown. Hopefully whoever came up with this idea was fired. The show lasted a year and a half. Alice, on the other hand continued for five additional seasons. I don't think Polly Holliday's career ever recovered, which is really a shame.moreless
