    • NOTES (1)

      • Step By Step (and Family Matters) was now on the cutting block due to the fact that the ratings of both shows were not up to Les Moonves' (President of CBS at the time, and the person who decided to buy the shows from ABC) expectations. Because of this, both shows were pulled from the lineup temporarily. Because of Step by Step's ratings faring worse than Family Matters, CBS cut the episode order from 22 to 19.
