The show did not get a proper finale, as it was ended early due to ExecutiveMeddling on the part of Creator/{{CBS}}. Most of the cast found out after the last episode, but Sherman Hemsley didn't know until he read about it in the newspaper.

Although created (like its parent show) by NormanLear, it wasn't that political. Still, it was the first series to prominently feature a mixed-racial couple, Helen and Tom Willis.

The show had its own spin-off, titled ''Checking In'' and centered on the character of housekeeper Florence. Low ratings led to its cancellation after just four episodes, and Florence returned to ''The Jeffersons''.
