A spinoff of the sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes," "Facts of Life" focused on the Drummonds' housekeeper, Edna Garrett (Charlotte Rae), as she becomes housemother to seven girls at an all-girls school in upstate New York. Ratings for the show began to fall in 1986, leading to the last show in 1987. ( Paul Drinkwater/NBCU Photo Bank)
