Plot

"Full House" was about Danny Tanner, a sports anchor & widowed father of three daughters: D.J., Stephanie & Michelle, who enlists his brother in law, Jesse and best friend, Joey to help raise his children.

In season two, Danny is reassigned from his duties as sports anchor by his television station to become co-host of a local morning television show called "Wake Up, San Francisco" and is teamed up with Rebecca "Becky" Donaldson from Nebraska.

Jesse & Becky eventually fall in love and get married in season four. In season five, Becky gives birth to their twin sons, Nicky and Alex.

Broadcast History

"Full House" originally aired on Fridays from September 1987 to August 1991 which spanned the show's first four seasons and later became the flagship program of ABC's newly launched TGIF block in September 1989.

The show was briefly moved to Tuesdays during the 1987–88 season and then aired twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays for a few months in order to help the series build an audience. It remained on Fridays permanently for the next three seasons as the show's ratings increased.

For season 5, "Full House" was moved to Tuesdays full-time and remained there until the series ended in 1995.

While the show's first season was not very successful (mostly because it was a new series placed in an 8 p.m. Eastern timeslot & most freshman series start out in protected time slots preceded by successful lead-ins), it quickly became popular during its second season as it was placed immediately following the established hit show "Perfect Strangers" (which was also produced by Tom Miller and Bob Boyett).

From season 3 onwards, "Full House" was ranked among Nielsen's Top 30 shows (a ratings increase which allowed the series to move back to Fridays at 8 p.m.). By the fourth season, the series jumped to the Top 20 and remained there until the seventh season (the series peaked at the top ten during seasons five and six).

In 1995, despite the fact the show was still rated in the top 25, ABC announced that it was canceling "Full House" after eight seasons due to the increasing costs of producing the series.

The one-hour series finale of "Full House" was watched by 24.3 million viewers, ranking #7 for the week and attracting a 14.6 household rating and a 25 percent audience share.
