    They're about families. Are any of them appropriate for kids like Fuller House is?

    I'm actually asking, as I don't watch any of them. I do watch Modern Family, which I will watch with my kids in the room but I don't say "hey, kids, come watch this with us."

    I don't watch most of them either. I was hoping you'd tell me. I wouldn't think anything with Tim Allen would be too inappropriate. They look like typical family sitcoms that would be at home on TGIF should ABC ever decide to revive it. I do watch Fresh Off the Boat and as far as I can remember, it's fairly kid friendly.

    I don't think Fuller House is quite "family friendly" either. But of course, everyone has different standards. I'm hoping they will tame it down a bit for season 2 but I'm doubting it.

    They're not quite as family friendly as Full House was, but then again neither is Fuller House. Everything these days is a bit edgier then it use to be unless you drop back to kid friendly channels like ABC Family or Disney.

    Interesting. I am hoping they keep it like it is. It's enjoyable now for a wide range of audience members. if they tone it down a lot, then it becomes a Disney channel show, and I think you lose the adult audience.

    "ABC Family" or whatever it is called these days, runs shows close to Fuller House I'd say. A good example is Young and Hungry. It's a sitcom, but it's certainly more "edgy" than Full House was back in the day.

    Yeah, they changed the name of ABC Family for a reason. :)

    That contract must've expired, because effective 1/1/16, the channel is now called "FreeForm."

    I think it still has to run the religious programming, but I'm not sure.

    Interesting. I didn't see that before. I thought the name had to have "Family" in it forever.

    They need to keep the programming, but the name was not part of the contract.

    Yup. Family being in the name was an urban legend, according to Wikipedia. Here's a Deadline article from October when the name change was announced.

    Bob Sagget was on @Midnight and they said Season 2 of Fuller House hit Netflix on December 9th. Hadn't heard an exact release date for S2 before so this was news to me.

    Has anybody started watching season four yet? I just watched episode 6 and I couldn’t stop smiling all the way through it. So much fun!

    I know it just dropped today but I am watching season 5 and I’m already up to episode 8. There were a couple of really great lines already and I’m only two minutes in. I will miss this show!!

    Watched this yesterday. This was the first half of Season 5. The second half will drop sometime in 2020.

    I love this show. I am sad to see it end. Hopefully they will bring it back in ten years.

    I would imagine she will be redeemed by then and be back on TV. I imagine her life will go something like this:

    1. Go to jail
    2. Sit down with Gayle King for an emotional interview from prison where she will cry about wanting the best for her daughters.
    3. Get out of jail.
    4. Become a Real Housewife for a few seasons.
    5. Go back to acting.
