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.
