Rob Lowe's Brother Chad Lowe in TV Sitcom Spencer


With all of the excitement centered around Rob Lowe and his new Stories I Only Tell My Friends biography, I am reminded of the somewhat forgotten Lowe brother, Chad Lowe. Yes, we've heard about Chad and his addictions, split from Hillary Swank, marriage to Kim Painter, new baby Mabel, etc. but wait, what about Spencer, his awesome short-lived sitcom of 1984?

Watch the opening credits of Spencer with Chad Lowe!


Chad Lowe appeared as Spencer in the 1980s sitcom Spencer long before his Life Goes On days. I remember so little about this show, but know I loved it so very much. My buddy, Serena had a huge crush on him and we never missed an episode, um all five?! I did some research on this forgotten show and thanks to the good folks at SkoolDays.com I learned that Spencer barely survived one season with Chad Lowe.

Who knew Chad Lowe was such a weenie even back then! Rumor has it he was arguing over creative control, money and more! It was his first sitcom -- he should have been basking in the glory. I know I woulda! I now remember the show randomly becoming Under One Roof staring Ross Harris as Spencer.

Your description "somewhat forgotten" makes me think of my granddaughter. Her older sister, the dancer, into everything... while she sits quietly, waiting her turn to shine. I hope she has the opportunity, someday.

Don't know the show. I've never been a fan of either Lowe brother. Though between the two of them, I guess I prefer Chad.
