Home Free aired from March until July 1993 on ABC.
A lazy, freeloading 23 year old had his comfortable world disrupted in this lightweight sitcom. Bachelor Matt ( Matthew Perry), enjoyed a life of ease living at home with his indulgent mom Grace ( Marian Mercer), while playing the dating field, until his divorced older sister Vanessa ( Diana Canova), moved in with her kids, Abby ( Anndi McAfee), and Lucas ( Scott McAfee). Wiseguy Matt and conservative Vanessa immediately began sparring and with 2 kids around Matt began to learn unaccustomed lessons in responsibilty.
Matt worked as a cub reporter at a newspaper where Ben ( Alan Oppenheimer), was the gruff editor; Walter ( Dan Schneider), , a dim-witted reporter; and Laura ( Brooke Theiss), a foxy photographer whom Matt would have liked to bed.
A Review From Entertainment Weekly
31 WEDNESDAY HOME FREE (ABC, 8:30-9 p.m.) An utterly standard-issue new sitcom with a smart, talented cast, Home Free has a premise that sounds more complicated than it actually is. A 22-year-old newspaper writer, Matt Bailey (Matthew Perry), is still living at home with his widowed mother, Grace (Marian Mercer); in the pilot episode, their home is invaded by Matt's newly divorced sister Vanessa (Diana Canova) and her two children (Anndi and Scott McAfee- real-life siblings and as cute as two related buttons!). They're all living at home with Grace, for free-get the title now? The jokes on Home Free aren't much better than ones you'll hear on stuff like Step by Step or Empty Nest, but Perry, Mercer, and Canova are all so skilled that they frequently elicit chuckles just from the knowing, snappy way they deliver their lines. It's too early to be sure, but there also seems to be some comic potential in Matt's workplace, a dinky local newspaper edited by the enjoyably cranky Alan Oppenheimer, who used to play Murphy Brown's enjoyably cranky network honcho, Gene Kinsella.
