Now that I think about it, I think that was more entertaining than her show.

Saw it? I never even heard of it!

Coupling - It worked in England, but here, (Family Feud buzzer plays) it didn't have a whale of a chance at all! No one barely even noticed this turkey!

Joanie Loves Chachi - easily the worst Happy Days spin-off of all! However, the funny thing about this show is that it's number 1 in Korea as Chachi in Korean means something about something that I won't get into on here!
i noticed coupling and after 2 eps i was sorry that i did

Oh yeah, Condo, a 1982-83 ABC midseason replacement starring McLean Stevenson, really blew it out the wazoo! I only watched for McLean Stevenson, who I was rooting for to finally have a hit show! What a grand waste of time that was (the show and the rooting)!

Default CONDO

was so dreadful

it seemed that ALL the stars who left MASH for their own shows all bombed

Larry Linville on Checkin In

only 4 eps

Stevenson on a long list of flops

Wayne Rogers had a decent run on House Calls but that was it

Wayne Rogers left "M*A*S*H" because he said that all he got to do on the show as Trapper was offer Hawkeye another martini. Which was pretty accurate, as Trapper seemed to lack an identity on the show, unlike in the movie.

Larry Linville left because his contract was up and he felt he had done everything possible with Frank Burns. He worked a lot in the 23 years between his departure from "M*A*S*H" and his death, and he never regretted leaving.

Gary Burghoff left because a) he thought he'd done enough with Radar O'Reilly, b) his contract was up anyway, c) he felt was getting too old to play a nineteen-year-old farm boy (he was 37 when he left the show!), d) he wanted to spend more time with his daughter, e) he wanted to study the Bible, and f) he wanted to spend more time with his stamp collection. Okay, I made that last part up, but Gary Burghoff really does collect stamps! He even made an instructional video for first-time collectors!

So these guys all had solid, legitimate reasons to leave "M*A*S*H." But why did McLean Stevenson leave? He wanted his own show. What a dumb reason to walk away from a hit.

He got his own show, alright - seven, by my count, and they all failed!

McLean Stevenson was a trouper - always doing his best, even in a losing cause. Trouble was, he had too many losing causes in the last 21 years of his life.

i agree
McLean Stevenson was always a lot better than the shows he did after quitting M*A*S*H including America the talk show and Dirty Dancing the sitcom based on the movie.
i think Hello Larry was given a bum rap.
accept for meadowlark lemon(whom i never thought was funny) it had a very good cast and most of the episodes were entertaining.

M*A*S*H is an impossible act for ANYBODY to follow!
NONE... of the cast members of M*A*S*H came even close to topping it or even equalling its success including
Alan Alda
Wayne Rogers
Loretta Swit
Larry Linville
Gary Burghoff
Jamie Farr
Harry Morgan
Mike Ferrell
David Ogden Stiers
William Christoper

so i would say that McLean Stevenson is in good company

Condo - 1983
America - 1985
Dirty Dancing - 1987

Plus, a pilot for a sitcom about NASA - thus, he was 0 for 7!
