Family Ties was part of NBC's massive Thursday night lineup in the 80s and I used to watch it religiously.
When Michael J Fox's career took off, he was rehearsing and taping Family Ties during the day and filming Back To The Future at night.
When the show finally went off the air in 1989, I was really sad when the last episode played. But now we get a chance to catch up with the show's characters. The show will benefit The Actors Fund which helps actors who are in need.
More details are forthcoming but the Tuesday, November 10th show will include:
Michael Gross (Steven Keaton)
Meredith Baxter (Elyse Keaton)
Michael J Fox (Alex Keaton
Tina Yothers (Jennifer Keaton)
Marc Price (Skippy)
Nick Moore (Scott Valentine)
So far, Justine Bateman who played Mallory Keaton and Brian Bonsall who played Andrew Keaton have not signed on to be a part of it.
There are more details including how to watch it here.
Here are the opening credits for the second season of Family Ties, when TV theme songs could go on forever!
Here's the curtain call after the final episode in 1989 titled "Alex Doesn't Live Here Anymore".
