What Ever Happened to… Step by Step?

Oh, come one.  You all remember Step by Step! It ran for 7 years on ABC’s TGIF.  TGIF also featured the likes of Family Matters, Boy Meets World, and Full House, to name a few.  Over the years (1991-1998) it became a huge staple in my childhood and all of a sudden it was canceled!Step by Step was a sitcom on ABC about a divorced contractor, and a widow who both have kids from earlier relationships, get married on impulse and create this modern-day Brady Bunch environment.  Patrick Duffy and Suzanne Somers were the key players in this game and what a game it was.  That is until the game changed up a bit.

Unfortunately, SbS was moved from ABC to CBS and quickly started losing steam.  Along with SbS, other TGIF staples like Boy Meets World and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch also started experiencing a decline in viewership.  Sasha Mitchell, who play Cody Lambert, Frank’s nephew, then got into some trouble with the law with some domestic violence allegations that were later acquited.

All in all, the show ran for almost a decade but ultimately met its demise probably due to the frequent change in cast members towards the end of its run.  They just need to make more shows like this and cut back on reality shows, in my opinion.  There’s no talent in reality shows, really.  Hand me a camera and tripod, I’ll set it up here and let you watch.  I guarantee you won’t find a better reality show.
