I must admit that Troop Beverly Hills is still both a guilty pleasure and a soft spot. It reminds me of my days as a Girl Scout.

Her movie career started fairly promising, but it seemed like once she'd finally left Cheers, that was pretty much it. Michael J. Fox could have easily left Family Ties around 1986, as Back To The Future made him a major film star, but he stayed with the show through its entire run and still appeared in successful feature films.

You notice David Caruso has learned his lesson. He left NYPD Blue looking for movie stardom and when he flopped he returned to TV in CSI: Miami. I haven't heard a peep out of him since that show premiered.

Actually David Caruso came back to TV for CBS in a series called "Michael Hayes", a one season wonder, before getting the CSI gig.

As for McLean, do you think NBC could not have kept Hello, Larry going for another season? Not as if NBC's fortunes were greatly improving at that point.

I haven't found the ratings for Hello Larry yet like I did for most short-lived shows

What was the timeslot for HL during its second season? Was it at that time displaced by FOL behind Diff'rent Strokes?

hmmmmmmm, you would think it would have still been enough of a followup hit to get renewed. Or perhaps NBC knew it would be better to invest in a show that truly had a DS legacy, Facts of Life?

It's a shame those crossovers with DS didn't help at all. There were 3 crossovers, 1 in Portland and 2 in NYC

I remember seeing a couple episodes myself. It co-starred Luis Avalos from The Electric Company. It was so long ago, I don't remember if it was good or bad.

I enjoyed it very much. It was paired with Bea Arthur's Amanda's which I did not like.

I remember reading an interview with McLean Stevenson in the early '80s where he said that if M*A*S*H did an episode where Henry Blake turned up alive at the 4077th, his body having been found floating in the sea of Japan with a pound of kelp up his nose, he'd have done it.

In other words..."I screwed up."

I'd agree with McLean. But the show would jump the shark if that happened.
