Toilet seats DOWN, please! This was an all-female show, with the exception of dad Alan, who worked at a women’s magazine publishing company. Lots of Daddy/Daughter interactions with Alan’s 8-year-old, Amy. A plotline that was easy to beat into an early grave, this show lasted from Halloween to Groundhog’s Day.
