Snoop Dogg! F-bomb! A heart-to-Hart! The 5 best moments from Live in Front of a Studio Audience
For the third time around, Live in Front of a Studio Audience successfully combined the heart and laughter of Norman Lear's classic sitcoms with great casting and performances for a true gift to television lovers this holiday season. Check out five of the best moments from the Facts of Life and Diff'rent Strokes episodes recreated by the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Hart, Kathryn Hahn, and Damon Wayans, to name a few.
Honorable mention: The MVP of the evening was Ann Dowd, who pulled double duty as the late Charlotte Rae's Mrs. Garrett, vocal quiver and all. Rae originated Mrs. Garrett on Diff'rent Strokes in 1978 before migrating to Facts of Life the following year. As Facts OG Mindy Cohn put it, "Charlotte is toasting Ann Dowd right now."
