Empty Nest (1988-1995)-"My biggest fear is that there is no such thing as PMS and that this is who I really am."



Empty Nest is an American sitcom that originally aired on NBC from 1988 to 1995. The series was created as a spin-off of The Golden Girls by creator and producer Susan Harris. For its first three seasons, Empty Nest was one of the year's top 10 most-watched programs. It was produced by Witt/Thomas/Harris Productions in association with Touchstone Television.

The show concept borrowed some elements from the British comedy series Father, Dear Father, also featuring a father living with his two daughters and large dog. However, unlike that series (in which the daughters are still teenagers and the ex-wife and her new husband are both conspicuously present), the two daughters in Empty Nest are self-supporting adults, and the lead character is a widower.

Empty Nest was part of NBC's Saturday night block of programming, and during its first four seasons it aired at 9:30pm ET, directly following The Golden Girls.

Two of the cast were alumni from one of Susan Harris' earlier shows, Soap; Mulligan was (briefly) Manoff's father-in-law in Soap.

Good question. I don't think so. I've never seen it.

I saw David Leisure, who played neighbor Charlie, in person before. He was in town playing a charity golf game and we followed them around for a few holes.

That would be good. I haven't seen it in years.

It was a good show, but I don't think I was watching regularly anymore towards the end. The Golden Girls would pop up from time to time too. I think Estelle Getty was even a cast regular as Sophia towards the end of the show.

Yeah, because Harry, the star of the show, was the neighbor to Rose, Dorothy, Sophia and Blanche.

Yeah. They would pop up on each other's shows from time to time. Then, when 'The Golden Palace' was canceled after one season, Estelle moved to this show. Sophia was just so popular, they always kept her around! Lol.
