Flo was a sitcom on CBS that was a spin-off from a show called Alice. This show aired from 1980 to 1981. Polly Holliday was the star of the show and played Flo on this show as well as on Alice. The show lasted only two seasons. Flo starts with her going to Texas to be a restaurant hostess as she had promised on her last episode on Alice. She stops in Fort Worth and visits her family. She decides to fix-up a roadhouse that she had loved earlier in life and turn it into a restaurant. Most of the next episodes are made up of her getting into conflict with her mother and sister. She also had problems with her new business.

The character Flo never appeared on Alice again. The only connection to the previous show was that the character Mel from Alice appeared once on Flo.
