Eleanor Standard: I thought I had grown, that I'd developed grace and style, that it wasn't just the money they liked. Well, thank you for blowing that illusion to hell.

It's like living with Noel Coward.

This show experienced a short renaissance on Lifetime Television Network in the early 90s. The writing was, for the most part, good (and in some cases, downright smashing). Unfortunately, a lot of expectations were riding on Loni Anderson's ability to score a hit after leaving WKRP in Cincinnati (this was her first series after that show). And when the show failed to deliver the numbers that were expected (due in part, I think, to poor scheduling and inadequate promotion by the network), the show went into a rapid downward spiral. Which is a pity, because Anderson gathered perhaps one of the finest casts imaginable for this show. Broadway actress Dana Ivey and future-Oscar-nominee James Cromwell shone as the rich in-laws who are constantly trying to oust Anderson's character from their midst. Ivey and Cromwell wrung every bit of comic juice from the material, with Ivey stealing (characteristically) pretty much every scene she was in. Unfortunately, the show was canceled before it could hit its stride, and the actors went on to greener pastures. I think, if it had been given a chance, it could have been a hit.
