Alex moves out of the house, finally, for that glorious career on Wall Street (where he will no doubt fund GOP candidates for years to come.) It's tough for mom and dad, because with Alex (Michael J. Fox) gone, the family ties are broken. The "Family Ties" two-parter, "Alex Doesn't Live Here Anymore" was seen by just over 36 million. Credit: NBC

THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY David Cassidy and Shirley Jones lead the family band in four seasons of the '70s pop sitcom; $46 for 12 stacked discs, Sony.
