About Full House
Full House is the ever-popular family-friendly sitcom about a recent widower (Bob ) who takes over raising his three daughters with the help of his wife's brother (John Stamos) and his best friend (Dave Coulier).

John Stamos' original character name, Jesse Cochran, was changed after Season 1 to "Jesse Katsopolis". The change in last names was due to Stamos wanting his character to better reflect his Greek heritage. In one episode, Jesse admits his birth name was "Hermes", which actually happens to be his real-life paternal grandfather's name.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen nearly left Full House after the first season because their real-life mother was concerned about them missing out on having a "normal" childhood. After a significant raise in salary from Full House's producers, she agreed to let them continue. Their mother also let them stay due to the fact that they became so popular. During Full House's run, only four main characters were added to the main cast. Lori Loughlin, who played the role of Rebecca Donaldson (later Katsopolis), was initially scheduled to appear in six episodes in Season 2 as Danny's co-host on Wake Up, San Francisco. However, producers decided to write her character into Full House and give her a permanent role in the third season.
Season 5 saw the debut of characters Nicky and Alex Katsopolis, who were the twin sons of Jesse and Rebecca. The characters Nicky and Alex were created to complement the popularity of the Olsen twins. However, the new characters did not achieve as much popularity as the producers had hoped for. The "baby" versions were played by Daniel and Kevin Renteria until the end of Season 5. Beginning in Season 6, Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit played the roles of toddlers Nicky and Alex until Full House ended two seasons later.
Production and filming
Full House was created by Jeff Franklin and executive produced by Franklin, along with Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett. Full House was produced by Jeff Franklin Productions and Miller-Boyett Productions, in association with Lorimar-Telepictures (1987-1988), Lorimar Television (1988-1993), and then by Warner Brothers Television (1993-1995).
Although Full House was set in San Francisco, and the opening credits featured a row of classic Victorian houses on that city's Steiner Street, the sitcom itself was taped at Warner Brothers Studios in Los Angeles. The only episode to have actually been taped in San Francisco was "Comet's Excellent Adventure", the first episode of Season 8. There were also a few episodes where the cast would shoot in other locations, most notably Hawaii in the third season premiere "Tanner's Island", and at Walt Disney World for the episodes "The House Meets the Mouse" (Parts 1 & 2) at the end of Season 6.
Since its 1995 finale, the sitcom has continued in syndication while gaining even more popularity among newer generations of family audiences. Full House was initially syndicated on various local stations nationwide. During the summer of 1991, reruns of the early seasons began airing in a daily daytime strip on NBC. In the late 1990s, TBS Superstation and WGN aired Full House every day until 2003, when Full House was dropped from the daily schedule on both networks. Later that year, Nick at Nite acquired Full House, as well as ABC Family in 2003. Several episodes on ABC Family feature the original extended version of the theme song. As of 2009, Full House still airs daily on ABC Family. Full House also airs on CTS (Crossroads Television System) in Canada.
Full House has also been acquired and aired by networks in various countries outside North America, and has a large amount of fans around the world. Reruns of Full House began airing on The N starting on August 31, 2009, and it then subsequently moved to the new TeenNick network when it debuted on September 28, 2009, taking over The N's channel space.
