> Description 
Kate & Allie was a television situation comedy, airing on CBS from 1984 to 1989. The show starred Susan Saint James as Kate McArdle and Jane Curtin as Allie Lowell, childhood friends who decided to share an apartment after their respective divorces.

The show also starred Ari Meyers as Kate's daughter Emma, and Frederick Koehler and Allison Smith as Allie's son and daughter Chip and Jennie.

The show's comedic depiction of two single women was one of the most popular and critically acclaimed sitcoms of the 1980s. Both Kate and Allie dated regularly, but were portrayed as strong, independent women, which was still a relative novelty on television at the time.

In the show's final seasons, Allie dated and married Bob Barsky (Sam Freed), a television sportscaster. Following their marriage, Allie and Bob moved into a new apartment; Bob simultaneously took a job which involved regular travel, and consequently Kate moved into the new apartment as well. This plot development, frequently cited as one of the canonical examples of a television show jumping the shark, caused the show's ratings to decline and led to its 1989 cancellation.
