Checking In was a short-lived 1981 television sitcom and spin-off of The Jeffersons, which itself had spun off from All in the Family.

In the series, the Jeffersons' maid, Florence Johnston, played by Marla Gibbs, accepted a job to become the executive housekeeper at the fictional St. Frederick Hotel in Manhattan.

Checking In premiered on CBS on April 9, 1981. It lasted for only four episodes in the Thursday, 8pm (EST) timeslot. Faced with low ratings, the series was swiftly cancelled, ending the show on April 30, 1981. Gibbs returned to The Jeffersons as the character of Florence. It was explained that the St. Frederick Hotel had burned down, so Florence decided to return to her former job with the Jeffersons.

Checking In was one of the few All in the Family-related series that was not successful, unlike The Jeffersons, Maude, and Good Times.
