Summary: Maude was one of the most popular shows during the 70s. Not only was it one of the most popular, it was one of the most controversial. The show was real and told it like it is - much like the show that first introduced us to Maude, All in the Family.Maude was outspoken and stong-willed... which lead her to many interesting and controversial situations. Maude wasted no time becoming one of the most controversial shows ever when she, at age 47, became pregnant and decided to get an abortion (the first show to ever have the lead character get an abortion). By the end of the show Maude was heading to Congress, ready to take on a new world. And it seemed we would get to see Congresswoman Maude, but Bea Arthur decided to leave the show. Maude remains as part of TV history and has since become a true c.Others in the cast include, Maude's fourth husband, Walter, and her divorced daughter, Carol from her first marriage. Arthur was the next door neighbor who later married Maude's best friend, Vivian and Phillip was Carol's son.Maude had a spin-off, Good Times, which centered around the life of the Findlay housekeeper, Florida. Mrs. Naugatuck become the new housekeeper in 1974. She would later marry her boyfriend, Bert Beasley.Spin-off of: All in the Family Spin-offs: Good TimesCBS Broadcast HistorySeptember 1972-September 1974----Tuesdays----8:00 p.m. September 1974-September 1975----Mondays----9:00 p.m. September 1975-September 1976----Mondays----9:30 p.m. September 1976-September 1977----Mondays----9:00 p.m. September-November 1977----Mondays----9:30 p.m. December 1977-January 1978----Mondays----9:00 p.m. January-April 1978----Saturdays----9:30 p.m.Nielsen Ratings: (Top 30 or Better)#4 in the 1972-1973 Season #6 in the 1973-1974 Season #9 in the 1974-1975 Season #4 in the 1975-1976 SeasonTheme Song: "And Then There's Maude" Written by: Alan and Marilyn Bergman and David Shire Sung by: Donny HathawayLady Godiva was a freedom rider She didn't care if the whole world looked.
