Storyline

"Empty Nest" is set in Miami and tells of the day to day misadventures of a widowed pediatrician named Harry Weston and his two adult daughters, Barbara and Carol, who have come back to live with him after failed marriages. Much of the humor is derived from Barbara and Carol's ongoing attempts, and failure to find the perfect partner, and leave the "nest" once again. There is also their skirt-chasing next door neighbor, Charlie Dietz, and Harry's southern nurse, Laverne Todd, who is unique for her unbelievable Hickory stories.

User Reviews

One of the best sitcoms ever.
27 February 2000 | by dnwalkerSee all my reviews

Park Overall made this one. Flipping through channels and hearing her speak was enough to get me started watching the show.

The early shows were the best. Barbara (Kristy McNichol) was needed to offset the neurotic Carol (Dinah Manoff). The show lost a lot when McNichol left.

It also lost a lot when Richard Mulligan as Dr. Harry Weston retired from his practice and started working in the storefront clinic. It was never the same after that, and Marsha Warfield as Dr. Maxine Douglas added little to it.
