Even though it premiered way back in 1987, "Full House" remains one of the most popular sitcoms of all time. After his wife tragically dies, San Francisco-based sports anchor Danny Tanner (Bob Saget) is left alone to raise his three children: D.J. (Candace Cameron), Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), and Michelle (Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen). So, Danny's brother-in-law Jesse (John Stamos) and best friend Joey (Dave Coulier) move in to help him take care of the kids.
Created by Jeff Franklin, "Full House" ran for a total of eight seasons, with 192 episodes airing from 1987 until 1995. The show was not a critical hit, but it was beloved by fans of all ages, who tuned in faithfully to make it one of the top primetime shows on TV (via The Los Angeles Times). The show was known for its refreshing levels of sincerity and earnestness, while also continually reminding audiences of the importance of family.
