Maybe This Time aired from September 1995 until February 1996 on ABC.
Julia ( Marie Osmond) was a recent divorcee trying to substitute a business career for love, in this bright single-woman comedy. Swearing off men, she plunged into managing the family's small-town coffee shop, unfortunately with more enthusiasm than ability. Her worldly mother Shirley ( Betty White), who had been married 5 times, was having none of her " modern business-woman" act, nagging Julia to get back in the dating scene and give love another chance. Watching the 2 generations spar were Julia's manipulative daughter Gracie ( Ashley Johnson), her unscupolous British cook Logan ( Craig Ferguson), and Ohara ( Amy Hill), who ran the pawnshop down the street and was always cooking up business-building schemes. Henry ( Eliot Reid), was the courtly landlord.
A Review from Entertainment Weekly
MAYBE THIS TIME
ABC, 8:30-9 p.m. (starts Sept. 15) CONCEPT: Marie Osmond plays Betty White's daughter; they run a little cafe. (Will Donny show up during sweeps for a decaf latte?) THE SCOOP: Sitcoms don't run more automatic pilot than this. Marie plays a single mom with a precocious moppet (Phenom's Ashley Johnson), and between them and grandma there's a constant barrage of old-lady jokes, single-woman jokes, wisecracking-kid jokes, all of them aimed straight at the heart of Middle America. But we know what you want to know: Is Marie going to sing? Saturday vet White ("maybe I'm not allowed in the week") says, "I think we're all going to sing. One way or another, we're all going to wind up singing, whatever comes out of a natural situation. It's kind of fun. In fact, we're even talking about a couple of scripts like that. Just fooling around." BOTTOM LINE: This show could prove scarier than American Gothic.
