ABC is bringing back two classic sitcoms with "Live in Front of a Studio Audience: Norman Lear's 'All in the Family' and 'The Jeffersons'" starting Woody Harrelson, Jamie Foxx, and more.
Marla Gibbs was given her own spin-off, Checking In (1981), where Florence went to work as an executive at a hotel. As a precaution in case the show failed, Gibbs would be allowed to return to this show. Roseanna Christiansen was hired as Florence's replacement, Carmen. When the spin-off was cancelled after four episodes, Gibbs returned to the show. Roseanna went on to become the Ewing's servant on Dallas (1978) from 1982-1991. On this show, Roseanna's character, Carmen, spoke English with a Spanish accent. Roseanna speaks very clear English.
Florence Johnston: Florence Johnston... M-A-I-D.
Numerous times on and off throughout the course of the series, people make a left when they leave through the exit of the Jeffersons' apartment. The layout of the hallway has Harry Bentley's apartment at the end about a couple feet away at corner on the left side of the Jeffersons' apartment. So it means logically they are just walking right into the door of Bentley's apartment instead of going straight across to the elevator.
Series creators Don Nicholl, Michael Ross, and Bernard West are listed as "Nicholl Ross West" during the show's closing credits on numerous episodes.
On the recently released DVD of "The Jeffersons" complete first season, the episodes are all shown in their entirety, some with up to 10 minutes of cut footage added.
