''Kate and Allie''

”Kate and Allie” — The show Jane Curtain won two Emmys for reairs on E!.

Posted on

After SNL, but before 3rd Rock From the Sun, Jane Curtin won two Emmys as half of CBS’s Kate & Allie. Susan Saint James played Kate, a divorcee with a daughter (Ari Meyers), who shared a Greenwich Village pad with Curtin’s Allie and her two kids (Frederick Koehler and Allison Smith). The actresses made a potent comic combo; Saint James had better chemistry with Curtin than she ever did with Rock Hudson on McMillan and Wife.
