You Again? is an American sitcom that was broadcast by NBC from February 27, 1986 to March 30, 1987 for two seasons.


You Again? stars Jack Klugman as Henry Willows, a man still embittered from his divorce ten years earlier, who had made no effort to see his son Matt (John Stamos) during that time. Henry had become fairly comfortable with his life as a supermarket manager and was not really looking to make major changes to it when Matt arrived looking to stay with his father, whom he hardly knew anymore. Matt was an ill-mannered but quite attractive youth who was very popular with the girls. He drove the gruff Henry almost over the edge, but of course in the end familial ties conquered all differences in sitcom tradition.


The Willowses had a British housekeeper named Enid, portrayed by Elizabeth Bennett. As she played the analogous role in the British program from which You Again was derived, Home to Roost, which was still in production, she was a frequent commuter from London to Los Angeles during the time in which You Again? was in production.

You Again? fell far short of the hit status achieved by Home to Roost in the UK. Nonetheless, the first season's ratings proved strong enough for NBC to renew it for a second season. It ran for just over a year, occupying four different time slots in the process, prior to its cancellation.
