TV show description:      
This sitcom follows the life of Tony-winning diva Madison Banks (Kirstie Alley). She’s enjoyed years of unbridled hedonism, drinking and sleeping her way up and down Broadway.

Her life takes a surprising turn when she meets up with Arlo Barth (Eric Petersen), the son she gave up for adoption 26 years earlier. Maddie has played countless roles on stage, but now she has to play the one part she’s not prepared to take on — a mother.

With the help and encouragement of her long-suffering assistant and best friend Thelma Katz (Rhea Pearlman) and her eccentric chauffeur Frank Baxter (Michael Richards), Maddie realizes that Arlo is a diamond in the rough and invites him to move into her swanky New York City apartment.

Series Finale:     
Episode #12 — The Dinner Party
Maddie hosts a dinner party for Arlo’s new girlfriend and her snooty intellectual parents who also live in the building. Thelma pretends to be her maid and tries to feed Maddie information for her conversations. Fraks picks up Professor Danniker, Maddie’s date, but he ends up getting drunk in the limo so Frank takes his place. The evening is a disaster and Arlo proclaims that he is proud to have people in his life that would go to such lengths to help him impress a girl.
First aired: February 26, 2014.

    I’m really dissapointed with Tv land. The show was funny and I was looking forward to the second season. Don’t cancel shows, get good writers instead.

    Man more and more good shows are cancelled without really given a chance. Tv execs suck anymore and don’t know what they are doing. Ratings are down because people don’t want to get attached to shows just to have it ripped away!!! Shame on you Tvland!!!

    I was hoping that Kirstie would be back. I agree with others, that Arlo didn’t do anything for the show.

    Keep waiting for the show to come back, thought it was very funny. Sorry it was cancelled. Enjoyed it very much will miss it!! Why do they (the producers) cancel good shows??? Disappointed in Maine!!

    Kirstie Ally was great along with veteran actors.
    The actor who played Arlo just wasn’t the right actor
    For the part. Not funny and witty, they needed someone
    Who was more experienced and funny and clever.
    I feel that’s what sunk the show.

  6. Sandy Stubblefield says

    Thought Kristie was good but the actor playing Arlo was not
    They need to bring it back and get a better actor to
    Play the son.
