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.

    Kirstie is totally NAUSEATING in this show. She is so self absorbed, always with her hands on her hips (does she think she’s a sexy model, or something?), her head tilted down,her eyes looking up at you, the face cammo hairdo, and that SNARKEY expression on her face!!! Nothing funny about the show.

    enjoy the show, could stand less talk about drugs & more mother/son bonding. eric peterson is great on the show.

  3. Gail Campanelli says

    I love her co-stars, but can’t stand HER. Her character is not funny, and she seems to be playing her real bitchy self. I hope it’s cancelled.

    I thought the show was horrible. Not funny at all. They had to bring in some big name people to try & save the show. It didn’t work. Kirstie isn’t funny at all. The acting was forced & strained. It deserves to be cancelled.

This sitcom has a great cast and it’s a wish come true with so many of my fav stars . Don’t you ever cancel it ! Add more seasons to it coz my family enjoy laughter together. Thank you, TV Land ! Yours is going to be a great hit, I can tell.

    I had my doubts of this show, but after a couple episodes I fell in love with it. Not real fond of the son character but everyone else is beautifully well rounded and hilarious. I also love the guest star line up for the first season. Please keep this show going.

    DO NOT CANCEL!!! SERIOUSLY, KIRSTIE AND ENTIRE CAST ARE GREAT!!! I LOOK FORWARD TO WEDNESDAY NIGHT TELEVISION BECAUSE THEY ALL ARE SO COMIC AND WORK SO WELL TOGETHER. IT WOULD BE A SHAME TO TAKE AWAY A SHOW THAT MAKE YOU LAUGH AND APPRECIATE AT THE SAME TIME HOW TALENTED THESE ACTORS ARE. I’M ROOTING FOR KIRSTIE AND THE WHOLE TEAM BEHIND THIS SITCOM. :)
