Thea is an American sitcom that premiered September 3, 1993 on ABC, and last aired on February 14, 1994, for a total of 19 episodes. Starring comedienne Thea Vidale, the series marked the first time an African American female comedienne was the star of a series named after her.
Thea Vidale starred as the sassy Thea Turrell (known for her trademark one-liner of "See ya'!"), a widowed mother of four who works in a Houston, Texas supermarket by day and runs a one-chair beauty salon on the corner of her porch in the evenings.
Although the show garnered high ratings at first, ratings steadily fell thereafter, and the series was canceled after only 19 episodes. It ended the season in 43rd place.
