Spin-off hell, T.V. shows begat from successful shows.
Sanford Arms (1977) was a spin-off from the highly successful Sanford and Son. Instead of kow-towing to the demands of the star Redd Foxx and not offering the salary that Demond Wilson deserved for carrying the show, the producers in their infinite wisdom decided to change the format of the show. A single father and his children become the new owner and residents of the Sanford Arms Hotel, a boarding house that was owned by Fred Sanford and managed by Aunt Esther. Despite the appearances of the latter series guest stars, the show never was a ratings winner and it died after the first four episodes. Next time the producers should open up their check books instead of pulling the purse strings.

Lame attempt to keep a successful series on the air.

Not recommended.
