  • This show was about a radio talk-show host named Larry.

    McLean Stevenson stared as Larry Alder a radio talk-show host trying to get a fresh start. His marriage had ended and he was awarded custody of his two daughters. They moved from L.A. to Portland where he gets his new job at radio station KLOW.

    Stevenson had left the hit series M*A*S*H to take this job. It has become one of the longest running jokes in TV history. It ranks right up there with David Caruso leaving NYPD Blue.

    Hello, Larry's was even given a gift of following a popular show at the time "Diff'rent Strokes." It wasn't enough. The show just didn't have any audience and lasted longer that it really should have.

  • Back then everyone thought that Kim Richards was going to be the biggest female teen star on TV. She was going to be bigger than Brooke and Kristy put together.

    Then again Kristy McNichol is all forgotten as is Brooke Shields.

    However, Kim's name will live in infamy thanks to her big sis marrying a Hilton and having 2 daughters (Paris and Nikki).

    And it appears as if Kim's daughters are going to be heading to Hollywood too. Brooke Brinson is Kim's oldest of 4 kids and she is already seen hanging with her cousins Paris, Nikki and Barron.
  • Not as bad as you think

    This show has been the punchline for many a joke over the years. I watched this show when it was on and it was not that bad. No, it wasn't brilliant, but it wasn't the worst show ever made either. One of the daughters was re-cast in season 2, but that's commonplace these days. McLean Stevenson never got the credit he deserved after he left Mash, but he was a good comedic actor.
