With the passing of Gary David Goldberg earlier today, I was reminded of the touching series finale of Family Ties. At its peak, the sitcom was number two in the ratings and helped to make Michael J. Fox a household name.
NBC moved Family Ties to Sunday nights in its final years and the ratings waned considerably. Still, a whopping 36.3 million viewers tuned in to watch the last episode.
Here’s the show’s emotional curtain call and the cast and crew saying farewell and thank you to viewers. Appropriately, series creator Gary David Goldberg had the last word.
What do you think? Did you watch the last episode of Family Ties when it aired or later? How would you rate it as a series finale?
