Sitcom that was a send up of daytime soaps, centering on housewife Mary Hartman, her friends and neighbours in the town of Fernwood, Ohio. Shown every week day, the shows characters were beset by all manner of sensational storylines.
A 130 episode sequel, minus Mary Hartman, appeared called Forever Fernwood. A kind of related sequel was Fernwood 2-night, which pastiched talk shows(the title of this show later became America 2-Night).
