Gloria. The Sixth and final spin-off to the successful All In The Family that lasted one season
20 December 2010 | by rcj5365See all my reviews

The short-lived comedy series "Gloria" was the sixth and final installment that became a spin-off of "All In The Family" that lasted one season and produced 22 episodes as part of CBS' Sunday Night lineup of comedies that dominated much of the early-1980's. The series was a spin-off of one of the greatest situation comedies to ever grace the 1970's,"All In The Family". But it wasn't the first. In 1972,Bea Arthur's situation comedy series "Maude" was the first spin-off of "All In The Family",which launched after the success of "Maude" came "Good Times"(the second spin-off that was associated with Maude by way of All In The Family)in 1974. In 1975,the third spin-off "The Jeffersons" saw Archie and Edith neighbors,George and Louise Jefferson moved from Queens to the exclusive upper East Side. By 1979,the fourth spin-off was a sequel to All In The Family titled "Archie Bunker's Place". Another spin-off of The Jeffersons by way of All In The Family focus on Marla Gibbs's character Florence Johnston,the sassy housekeeper on The Jeffersons,moved out of the Jefferson's residence to strike out on her own. The series "Checking In"(the fifth spin-off)lasted no more than one season in 1981. Sally Struthers' series "Gloria" was the last of the spin-offs that were associated with All In The Family.

Speaking of this series "Gloria" was placed on the Sunday Night lineup of comedies that CBS had during the early 1980's and it was placed between "Archie Bunker's Place",and "The Jeffersons",along with another success Norman Lear produced sitcom "One Day At A Time". The setup of the show indicted that Gloria's husband,Michael Stivic(who did not appear in the new series)left her and moved to a commune to live with a flower child. Gloria,now alone and divorced left California and moved back to New York so that she can be closer to her father,and to move with her young son,8-year old Joey(Christian Jacobs)to pick up the pieces of her life as a assistant veterinary in the town of Foxridge in upstate New York.

Veteran actor Burgess Meredith played Gloria's boss Dr. Willard Adams,and was also the landlord to the apartment where Gloria and her son were staying. Jo De Winter was Gloria's best friend and confident. The series ran on CBS from September 26,1982 until September 21,1983. From September of 1982 until April 10,1983,the original 22 episodes ran for one season. From June of 1983 until September of 1983,CBS moved the show from its Sunday night schedule to Wednesday nights,where the put it opposite the ABC-powerhouse prime-time soap drama "Dynasty". Another short-lived sitcom "Goodnight Beantown!" was the sitcom that replaced "Gloria" on CBS' Sunday night schedule.
