Show Summary

Welcome to the Room for Two guide at Show Type: Situation Comedy
First Telecast: March 24, 1992
Last Telecast: July 6, 1993
Episodes: 26 Episodes, 2 Unaired
Recently widowed Edie arrives in New York to visit her daughter, Jill, a successful morning TV show producer on "Wake Up, New York." A twist of fate finds Edie getting a job doing a daily commentary on the show, while driving her daughter crazy in the process. Also working on the show were Jill's assitant, Naomi Dillon, and the dignified hosts, Diahnn Bourdreau and Reid Ellis. Ken Kazurinsky was Edie's eccentric inventor neighbor who runs a mail order catalogue, with whom a romantic chemistry was hinted at (though never pursued); and Matt Draughon was Jill's boyfriend, a biology teacher. Many episodes ended with Edie giving her commentary, then throwing her hands in the air, exclaiming, "I'm Edie Kurland. It's just a thought!"Alice star Linda Lavin's return to television in this midseason replacement garnered modest ratings, but the show was put on hiatus after just 7 weeks. ABC was impressed enough with the series to give it a second chance, ordering an additional 13 episodes. Over the course of the next year, the show was on again, off again and switched around to different nights. Rarely can a new show sustain a following with that lack of support on the network's part, so it faded away after just two seasons. Two of the episodes were never even aired. In recent years, probably due to Patricia Heaton's fame on Everybody Loves Raymond, several episodes have popped up on TV Land.
