The Redd Foxx Show was a short-lived sitcom that premiered January 18, 1986 on ABC. The show was cancelled after 3 months, partly due to low ratings in its Saturday-night timeslot (the eighth episode aired in a Friday-night slot). Although the first two episodes brought in decent ratings;[1] the show usually finished in the bottom ten for the week. A total of 13 episodes were made.

Overview[edit]

Al Hughes (Redd Foxx), a New York City diner/newsstand owner, adopts a "streetwise" teenager named Toni (Pamela Segall Adlon). Diana (Rosanna DeSoto) worked with Al in the newsstand and Jim-Jam (Nathaniel Taylor, Teddy Wilson) owned a Chinese restaurant nearby. As the show went on, Toni "disappeared" and in came Al's ex-wife Felicia (Beverly Todd) and his son Byron (Sinbad).
