* SpiritualSuccessor: to ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'', which dealt with many of the same issues and themes. Not surprising since Creator/ChuckLorre was a former ''Roseanne'' writer, Brett Butler (like Roseanne Barr) was a stand-up comedian, and the Creator/CarseyWerner Studio produced both shows (concurrently). Both shows were shot in the same format and in the same style (ThreeCameras, LaughTrack, StandardizedSitcomHousing) to the point that you'd almost believe the Conners and the Kellys might have been neighbors. (They ''did'' each live in a MoebiusNeighborhood, it's entirely possible...)

(They ''did'' each live in a MoebiusNeighborhood, it's entirely possible...) Other similarities include:
** Both shows even had the female protagonist initially working a blue collar "man's job" (both worked in petrochemicals: Roseanne at a plastics factory and Grace at an oil refinery) with each eventually departing their job for greener pastures.
** Both shows replaced the actor playing the eldest child, and both shows saw one of the children cast for the pilot replaced when the show went to series. ''Roseanne'' saw Becky played first by Lecy Goranson, then by Sarah Chalke, then by Lecy Goranson, and finally by Sarah Chalke. D.J. was played initially by Sal Barone for the pilot, but then by Michael Fishman for the rest of the series. ''Grace Under Fire'' was only slightly less convoluted: Noah Segan (a skinny redhead with glasses) played Quinton in the pilot, but Jon Paul Steuer (a stockier brunet) took over for the first three seasons. Although they looked nothing alike, Segan and Steuer were at least born within six months of each other, but when Steuer left after the third season, he was replaced by Sam Horrigan, who was three years older. This forced the character to be aged up, as noted above.
** Most notoriously, both shows had ThePrimaDonna stars who feuded constantly with their writer-producer, Chuck Lorre, and forced him off the show.
