The Facts of Life is an American sitcom that originally ran on the NBC network from August 24, 1979 to September 13, 1988. A spin-off of the sitcom Diff'rent Strokes, the series' original premise focused on the character, Edna Garrett (played by Charlotte Rae), as she becomes housemother (and later, dietitian as well) to seven young girls at the fictional Eastland School, a prestigious all-girls' school in Peekskill, New York.

Premise

Originally a spin-off of Diff'rent Strokes, the series featured the Drummonds' housekeeper, Edna Garrett (Charlotte Rae), as the housemother of a dormitory at Eastland, a private all-girls school. The young ladies in her care included spoiled rich girl Blair Warner (Lisa Whelchel), gossipy Dorothy "Tootie" Ramsey (Kim Fields), overweight, impressionable Natalie Green (Mindy Cohn), and tough street kid Jo Polniaczek (Nancy McKeon). Various other student characters came and went throughout the series' run.

Ratings

The Facts of Life was a success in the Nielsen Ratings and finished in the top 30 shows for four seasons of its nine season run: When TV viewers or entertainment professionals in the United States mention ratings they are often referring to Nielsen Ratings, a system developed by Nielsen Media Research to determine the audience size and composition of television programming. ...

  • 1985-86 (Seventh season): #27

Pilot

The Pilot for the show originally aired as the last episode of Diff'rent Strokes first season and was called "The Girls' School (aka Garrett's Girls)." The plotline for the Pilot had Kimberly Drummond requesting that Mrs. Garrett help her sew costumes for a student play at East Lake School for Girls, the school Kimberly attended in upstate New York, as her dorm's housemother had recently quit. Mrs. Garrett agrees to help, and we meet Tootie, Blair, Molly (played by Molly Ringwold), Nancy, Sue Ann, Jennifer, Laura, and Mr. Crocker, the school's headmaster. Mrs. Garrett helps put on a successful play, while also solving a problem for Nancy, and is asked to stay on as the new housemother. A television pilot is a test episode of an intended television series. ...


While Mrs. Garrett states she would rather remain working for the Drummonds at the end of the Pilot, it can be assumed that she later changed her mind. Following the pilot, the name of the school was changed to Eastland and the characters of Jennifer, Laura and Mr. Crocker were replaced with Natalie, Cindy and Mr. Bradley. This episode also features a much larger number of girls living in the dorm than were seen previously. Further, Kimberly is featured as a student at East Lake; however, her character did not cross over with Mrs. Garrett to the spinoff. Instead, she remained with Diff'rent Strokes, though occasionally characters from the Facts of Life would "visit" her.


First season

In the show's first season, the show focused on the troubles of seven girls, and the action was usually set in a large, wood-paneled common room of a girls' dormitory. Also appearing was the school's headmaster, Mr. Stephen Bradley and his assistant, Miss Emily Mahoney. The show was originally meant to be a summer series in 1979, but the head of programming decided to bring it back in early 1980. Miss Mahoney only appeared in the first few episodes of the show, and the character was dropped prior to the show returning in 1980. Also: 1979 by Smashing Pumpkins. ... Year 1980 (MCMLXXX) was a leap year starting on Tuesday (link displays the 1980 Gregorian calendar). ...


Early episodes of the show almost always revolved around a central morality-based or "lesson teaching" theme. The debut episode of the show was extremely controversial in that the character of Blair Warner insinuated that her schoolmate Cindy Webster was a lesbian because she was a tomboy who frequently showed affection for other girls. Though the show never said the word outright, instead using prejudicial terms such as "strange" and "not normal," it was one of the first times a teen questioning his or her sexual orientation had been shown on television. Other first season episodes dealt with drug use, sex, extreme diet, parental relationships and peer pressure. An oddity of the first season was that despite the fact that some of the girls were clearly older than the others, the plotlines would have all the characters taking classes together. This is a list of characters from the NBC sitcom The Facts of Life. ... This article is about same-sex desire and sexuality among women. ...


During the first season, Tootie was often seen on roller skates because while the character was supposed to be 12, Kim Fields was in reality, only 10. The skates were added to give her height. Previously, however, she failed to get the role of Arnold Jackson's girlfriend on Diff'rent Strokes because she was taller than Gary Coleman. This is a list of characters from the NBC sitcom The Facts of Life. ... Roller skates are devices worn on the feet to enable the wearer to glide along on wheels propelled by the legs. ...

A noticeable guest star during the first season was future Academy Award winner Helen Hunt.

Helen Elizabeth Hunt (born June 15, 1963) is an American Emmy-, Golden Globe-, and Academy Award-winning actress, widely known for her role in the television sitcom Mad About You and her Academy Award-winning role in As Good As It Gets. ...


Second season and beyond

After a thirteen-episode run, the show was retooled extensively. The producers felt there were too many characters given the limitations of the half-hour sitcom format, and that the plot lines should be more focused to give the remaining girls more distinct personalities. Four of the original actresses – Felice Schachter (Nancy), Julie Piekarski (Sue Ann), Julie Anne Haddock (Cindy), and Molly Ringwald (Molly) – were written out of the show (although the four did make periodic appearances in the second and third seasons, and one "reunion" in the eighth season). Coincidentally, Felice Schachter was the first actress hired when the show was in its initial stages, and was the first actress to be let go following the retooling. Further, the character of Mr. Bradley was also dropped, and replaced with an only occasionally seen headmaster. Felice Schacter (born 17 November 1963, in Queens, New York) is an American actress who is best known for her role as Nancy on the hit sitcom The Facts of Life for its first season, appearing sporadically afterwards. ...

In addition to being den mother to the girls – wealthy, spoiled Blair Warner (Lisa Whelchel), chubby, fun-loving Natalie Green (Mindy Cohn), and nosey, gossipy Tootie Ramsey (Kim Fields) – Mrs. Garrett became the school dietitian as the second season began, and a new student, street-wise, rough-around-the-edges, Jo Polniaczek (Nancy McKeon), arrived at Eastland on scholarship, originally from the Bronx. A turn of events led the four to be separated from the other girls, and forced to work in the cafeteria and live together in a spare room next to Mrs. Garrett's bedroom.

The series was given a berth on the 1980-81 American network television schedule, and the show was a constant Top 30 hit for most of the early and mid-1980s. Memorable episodes included Tootie's meeting with Jermaine Jackson; an all-night study session; Tootie's encounter with a teen prostitute; and Jo and Blair's trip to New York, where spending time with old friends led them to assess how Eastland has changed them. The series tackled many touchy topics: suicide, book banning, attempted rape on Natalie, attempted date rape on Jo, alcoholism, drug abuse, breast cancer, abortion, etc. In 1983, Jo and Blair graduated Eastland Academy while Natalie and Tootie were still attending school there. To keep the four girls under one roof, the plot involved Raymond, Mrs. Garrett's son, buying a bakery for her and convincing her to go into business for herself; she named it Edna's Edibles. The four girls came to work for her and lived in one of the rooms at the attached house.

The show became part of NBC's much-watched Saturday night lineup in 1985, but by this time, the girls were now in their late teens and early twenties, and public interest was starting to wane. In an attempt to increase ratings, Mrs. Garrett's store, Edna's Edibles, was burned to the ground and was replaced with a pop culture-influenced gift shop that the girls ran together, called Over Our Heads.

In addition to inflatable palm trees, the gift shop sold a few records, and this offshoot business was the springboard for many appearances by popular groups and singers, such as El DeBarge, Michael Damian, and Stacey Q.

Departure of Mrs. Garrett

The ratings continued to fall in 1986. At first, Charlotte Rae cut back on her role and then later decided to leave the series completely. In the season premiere for the eighth season, Mrs. Garrett announces she has met the man of her dreams, and is getting married. She also says that she will be joining her new husband for two years while he works for the Peace Corps in Africa. During the episode, we meet Mrs. Garrett's sister, Beverly Ann Stickle, played by Cloris Leachman, whom Mrs. Garrett convinces to take over the shop and look after the girls. Beverly Ann was never seen prior to this episode, but was mentioned as far back as when Mrs. Garrett was on "Different Strokes".

Cancellation

By the fall of 1987, the show, which had ranked in the Top 30 just two years before, now lagged behind, rarely ranking above #40, and it dragged down the rest of the night's lineup as a result (which, at the time, had Top 20 hits in The Golden Girls and 227). In a last-ditch attempt to raise the ratings, the show's writers created a storyline in which Natalie became the first of the girls to lose her virginity. Originally Lisa Whelchel was offered the storyline but she had become a born-again Christian and premarital sex conflicted with her morals. (Ironically, it also conflicted with an episode from the first season titled "Facts of Love" where Blair wanted to treat sex in a casual manner, while her boyfriend wanted to have a committed relationship with her and not have sex yet.).

Three of the girls who were cut from the show after the first season returned in the second-to-last season for a "reunion of friends" in an episode titled, "The Little Chill." Julie Ann Haddock, Julie Piekarski, and Felice Schacter reprised their roles of Cindy, Sue Ann, and Nancy, mentioning that Molly was unable to attend the reunion because she was so busy (a nod to actress Molly Ringwald's successful film career after her departure). The show was eventually cancelled in the spring of 1988. The producers had hoped to keep the show going by using the final episode as a backdoor pilot for a potential new spinoff in which Blair impulsively bought Eastland Academy, made it co-ed and became the new headmistress. Year 1988 (MCMLXXXVIII) was a leap year starting on Friday (link displays 1988 Gregorian calendar). ...


Recurring guest stars during the shows years, in addition to Cindy, Sue Ann, Nancy and Molly, included the cerebral palsy-afflicted Geri Tyler (Blair's cousin played by Geri Jewell). Other characters, such as the judgment-impaired Miko Wakamatsu (played by Lauren Tom), the snobbish Boots St. Clair (played by Jami Gertz), and the royal princess Alexandra (Heather McAdam) were recurring during the show's run. Shoplifter Kelly (Pamela Segall) was billed as a regular during the fourth season. Other guest roles included Jo's and Blair's parents (played by Alex Rocco and Claire Malis, and Nicolas Coster and Marj Dusay, respectively), Natalie's and Tootie's mothers, as well as the boyfriends of the girls.

Attempted spin-offs

Much like what had been done with The Facts of Life parent show, Diff'rent Strokes, NBC attempted to use the popularity of The Facts of Life to launch a successful spin-off show, but none of the proposed shows ever made it past the pilot stage.


The various attempts at spin-offs were backdoor pilots, which were shown as episodes of The Facts of Life. These episodes include: A television pilot is the first episode of an intended television series. ...

  • "Brian & Sylvia" - A second season episode where Tootie and Natalie go to Buffalo, New York to visit Tootie's Aunt Sylvia, a black woman who has recently married a white man. Richard Dean Anderson, the future star of MacGyver and Stargate SG-1, played the white husband.
  • "The Academy" - A third season episode, set at Bates, an all boys private school that was near Eastland. In this episode, the girls at Eastland were having a dance with the boys school.
  • "Jo's Cousin" - Another third season episode. In this episode, Jo visits her family in the Bronx, and we meet her cousin, a fourteen year old girl (played by Megan Follows) going through adolescence in a family full of men.
  • "The Big Fight" - A fourth season episode, set at Stone Academy, a boys military school. Natalie comes to visit a boy who tries to impress her by boxing.
  • "Big Apple Blues" - A ninth season episode, where Natalie spends the night with a group of eccentric young people living in a Soho loft. Two of the tenants in the loft were played by David Spade and Richard Grieco.
  • "The Beginning of the End/Beginning of the Beginning" - The two part series finale had Blair buying Eastland to prevent its closing. Blair finds that the school is in such dire financial straits that she is forced to make the school co-ed. Blair then essentially adopts the Mrs. Garrett role as she presides over the school, and is forced to deal with the troublemaking students in a plotline that is highly reminiscent of the second season premiere. The new Eastland students included Seth Green, Mayim Bialik and future Oscar-nominee Juliette Lewis.

Controversy

Geri Jewell

As mentioned above, The Facts of Life was one of the first television shows to feature a person with cerebal palsy as a recurring character. In an interview as part of the E! True Hollywood Story for The Facts of Life, Geri Jewell stated that she believed she was going to continue as a recurring character on the show during the sixth season, but the producers offered her only one episode for the season because viewers would immediately assume that any episode with Cousin Geri would be a very special episode. Jewell stated that she stopped appearing on the show for this reason. E! True Hollywood Story is a TV documentary series on the E! Entertainment Television cable and DBS channel that deals with famous Hollywood celebrities, movies, TV shows and well-known public figures. ... Geri Jewell (born 1956) is an actress and comedian born with cerebral palsy. ... For a one-off television program, see Television special. ...


Weight

Another issue that came up during the show's early seasons concerned the girls' appearances. Lisa Whelchel has stated in various interviews, including on the E! True Hollywood Story, that the girls spent a lot of time on set doing nothing, so the natural inclination for many of them was to eat, as food was readily available all over the set. This noticeably affected the girls' appearances, leading Joan Rivers to dub them "The Fats of Life" during the cast's appearance at the Emmy Awards, and causing the producers to restrict what the actors could eat while on set.


Mindy Cohn, in the E! True Hollywood Story, stated the situation was the exact opposite for her. She had been losing weight during this period, and the producers asked her to stop because her character was known for being overweight. Cohn said the producers compromised with her regarding her weight by dressing her in baggy clothing to make her appear heavier than she was.
