Question: I was wondering if you could tell me what the fourth show on ABC's "TGIF" was. It was the early to mid '90s and the other shows on with it were Full House, Step by Step and Family Matters. I have been trying to think of the fourth show, and it's driving me crazy. By the way, I read TV Guide every week and don't know what my life would be like without it. If you could please help me think of this show I would really appreciate it. Crystal, Minneapolis, Minn.
Televisionary: Well, I know what my life would be without it, Crystal. I wouldn't be writing this, so thanks for reading.
To answer your question, as far as I know, Full House, Step by Step and Family Matters were never in ABC's "TGIF" lineup at the same time. The combos of half-hour shows that included Full House were (starting at 8 pm): Full House, Family Matters, Perfect Strangers, Just the Ten of Us (1989-90); Full House, Family Matters, Perfect Strangers, Going Places (1990-91).
Other shows that aired as part of the mix in later years included Baby Talk, Dinosaurs, Camp Wilder, Boy Meets World, Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, Clueless, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, Teen Angel, You Wish and Brother's Keeper. Maybe you're thinking of one of those?
