Default Single Season Sitcoms of the 80s

A new book called "SINGLE SEASON SITCOMS OF THE 80s, A COMPLETE GUIDE" is coming within days. Everything from "AKA PABLO" to "ZORRO & SON" is covered.

Actually, JOANIE LOVES CHACHI ran for two short seasons. It's included in the book. The first season of the show was a very short trial run that did well enough to warrant a second season. In that second season, the ratings plummeted.

I'm very excited to purchase this book as soon as I can. There were many one season 80s sitcoms that need to be remembered and this book is a great way!

My favorite one season show was Square Pegs, which is probably the most famous one season show of the 80's.

I need to get this book as well, I am sure some forgotten about classic Fox shows are mentioned in this book and I know Homeroom from ABC is listed.
