Empty Nest (1988-1995)





Empty Nest started as a backdoor pilot on The Golden Girls (1985-1992) and was perhaps one of the worst episodes of the series.  It came as no surprise that it didn't work and had to be extensively retooled.  It debuted a year and a half later, in much better shape.  The only survivor was David Leisure as the quintessential annoying neighbor.  The first four seasons were pretty solid before the endless parade of cast changes.   


Location: The Weston House

This is not the best shot.  It was taken from the backlot tram ride a few years before it was torn down for a new attraction.
