If you grew up in the '90s and watched a lot of TV, the TGIF lineup on ABC was something you looked forward to all week. The familiarity and charm of those Friday night shows had a way of making families feel at home. It's somewhat ironic, then, that the family-friendly lineup was populated by people with very dark and allegedly scandalous lifestyles. In retrospect, the TGIF lineup is like the raw material for a David Lynch movie - beautiful on the surface, yet rotten at the core.
The TGIF scandals that followed the finales of shows like Full House and Family Matters are shocking not only because they involve child actors with substance abuse issues, but also because they take away from the memories of the audience's childhood. Throw on some NKOTB and prepare to have your world rocked by these '90s scandals.
