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!
