I didn't really like Mayberry R.F.D. I love The Andy Griffith Show and Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C., but I just hated Mayberry R.F.D.

Lumpy: Did you go out for anything, Dud?

Dudley: Well, I went out for football, but I got my finger stepped on, so my mother made me quit.

Eddie: Well listen-- I went out for basketball and I got my hair pulled, and my mother made ME quit.

Dudley: It's not that I was afraid of getting hurt or anything; it's just that-- well, it's kind o' hard to play the flute with a busted finger.

Dale Midkiff is my man!

My apologies to All in the Family people, but I thought "Gloria" was boring. I like it and am able to watch it, but it was lacking a lot of things from the show. I didn't care for the character Clark.

Mayberry R.F.D didn't do much for me either.
I didn't mind Andy Griffith too much. The theme song was kinda cool.

The most boring spin-off I have seen was "Maude". I just could not stand anything about her (i.e. her show, her voice, her face, her hair, ect).

My vote goes to "Checking In", a spinoff from "The Jeffersons" with Marla Gibbs' character, Florence, taking a job as the "Executive Housekeeper" at a New York Hotel. Larry Linville (best known as "Frank Burns" on M*A*S*H) played her chief adversary, Lyle Block, another executive at the hotel.

Can I change my previous vote? I just remembered the show "After M*A*S*H". A better title would have been "Beating a Dead Horse".

Cool

I could never get into Frasier. I loved Kelsey Grammer on Cheers, but I don't see why they had to give the character his own show.

The Ropers
The Cleveland Show
Frasier (I never once saw Cheers but I never understood why Frasier lasted so long)
Joey (don't know how the most idiot character of Friends could get a spin-off)
