I wold consider a spinoff a show made from a character or characters that were a regular part of another show and because of the popularity of the first show got their own show, like The Jeffersons. Maude, who only appeared on All in the Family once, wouldn't qualify.

There's different types of spinoffs. More to the point, though, Maude was on AITF twice. The second time the Bunkers went to Carol's (not played by Adrienne Barbeau) wedding. It was pretty clearly intended as a pilot based around Maude.

Maude was on AITF twice not once.

when a show does that the episode's called a "back-door pilot"

Joey the spinoff of Friends. Why they gave the dumbest and most boring character his own show I'll never understand. But I'm not really a Friends fan either.

For me it's Mayberry R.F.D A better name for it would be Mayberry D.O.A.

I can see why this guy got banned. Anybody that says "Frasier" is the most boring spin-off ever is clearly trolling.

The other Cheers spinoff was awful, (but mercifully short lived), The Tortellis. It was about one of Carla's ex-husbands Nick Tortelli and his new, much younger but dumber than a box of rocks airhead wife and I don't remember her name but she was played by Jeanne Kasem, the recent widow of American Top 40 host Kasey Kasem, and I did think she was funny as the character sometimes. But the show was bad. What made it even dumber is that these characters weren't even Cheers regulars and were on maybe 2 or 3 episodes that I can remember. So why somebody thought they should get a series of their own beats me.

I like the Mary Tyler Moore spinoffs Rhoda and Lou Grant, but I didn't like Phyllis. Boring, I'd have more fun watching paint dry. But I'm not a big Cloris Leachman fan.

Agreed, RFD was not the greatest, what a disappointment!
