 ALICE | A TELEVISION HEAVEN REVIEW
While waiting for her break as a singer, Alice serves meals at Mel's Diner, a greasy spoon known for the chili made by cook and proprietor Mel Sharples (played by the late Vic Tayback, the only member of the film cast to join the TV version when it debuted on CBS in 1976).
In 1981, Ladd left the series (reportedly because of clashes between her and series star Lavin) and was replaced by Jolene Hunnicutt (Celia Weston), a character similar to Flo and Belle in both spirit and Southern accent.
Lavin was also able to satisfy her real-life itch for vocalizing; she sang the show's theme "There's A New Girl In Town" at the beginning of each episode.

 Alice (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The waitress void was filled by the introduction of Alice Hyatt in the first episode.
By the 1984-1985 season, many of the situations had been exhausted and Lavin seemed disinterested in continuing the character of Alice (Alice was absent several times in the last year due to Lavin directing a number of episodes or playing another role as Alice's wizened landlady).
Vic Tayback (Mel Sharples) died in 1990, but most of the other cast members have continued to appear fairly regularly in theater, television, and the occasional film.
