In 1988, NBC takes a “leap” of faith with “Day by Day,” a companion piece to “Family Ties.” This situation comedy was one of the “yuppie sitcoms” that were all over the TV dial in the late '80s.

The quality time lasted just under five months. Though the series starred Douglas Sheehan (General Hospital fame) and Linda Kelsey, it is perhaps more well known for its supporting characters than its leads: Julia-Louis Dreyfus is the best friend, Courtney Thorne-Smith as an employee, Christopher Barnes as the loving son and “American Beautyʹs” Thora Birch as one of the day-care kids.
