The complete summary of the well-read viewer who says this is the sixth spin off is forgetting (understandably) the Jeffersons spin off, "Checking In," which lasted about four episodes. Marla Gibbs as the star--Florence gets a job at a hotel--was perhaps the smartest spun-off actress in TV land... she reportedly had it in her contract that if the show failed she could return to "The Jeffersons."
I loved "Gloria" though wished it could have had a closer connection with AITF/Archie Bunker's Place, but I guess that was nixed by Carroll O'Connor. One idea floating was to have Gloria meet a woman (played by Jean Stapleton) who reminded her of her mother.
Sally Struthers was a gifted actress and had lots of appeal, and it was a fun cast. These short-run series are hard to find, and, if you like them, harder to forget.
