This was one of Fox's flagship shows that aired along with Married With Children opening night on Fox. Before this, Tracey was known to a few in America that either saw one of her britcoms via someone in England or owned a copy of her 1983 album, You Broke My Heart In 17 Places. This showed got her launched and it was too funny. My favorite character was Franchesca. It was amusing seeing her transform into a teenager. She was also backed up by a great supporting cast with Julie Kavner, Dan Castelleneta, Sam McMurray, Joseph Malone, and later, Anne Levine. I miss this show and the Sunday nights it was on. It's too bad comedy like this doesn't work on TV anymore. She was talented and many of the skits were downright hilarious. Especially from the first episode where a busy couple spends all but five minutes with their child until they run off again, and a woman who gets pulled over for drunk driving (who really isn't) and is asked to perform odd tests. Truly comic genius.
