For some reason, Johnny Carson would make fun of "Hello Larry" in his nightly monologues. Carson was on NBC, and Stevenson surely was a friend or an associate of Carson's. Stevenson even subbed for Carson on The Tonight Show on occasion. But being a smartass is part of being a Late Night host, so there it is.

Personally, if Johnny would have died or quit show business around the late 70's, McLean Stevenson would have been a decent replacement. Midwesterners of the same generation, etc.

I was around 12 when the show came on, and I did not think it was a bad show for what it was. Hello Larry had two hot daughters, with the girl who played Ruthie around my age.

More watchable than the Facts of Life in my opinion

The original Diane (Donna Wilkes) was much better than her replacement. She had an edginess to her that the other one didn't.

And yes, Kim Richards was cute and crush-making material, particularly a couple of years after the show ended, when she made a guest appearance on Alice.

I thought it was good, I couldnt wait for it to come on each week and was very disapointed when they cancelled it. And like a few others in this thread, I had a huge crush on Kim.

I think everybody had a crush on Kim.

Hello Larry was a good show. It was in the same category as The Facts of Life and Diff'rent Strokes. I don't know why it didn't last.

Especially when it became so connected with Different Strokes. I mean they had like 3 crossovers

No, but I probably should. They all are on the DS DVDs, right?

Yeah they should be but I didn't buy the first 2 seasons of Diffrent Strokes on DVD because I felt the show didn't get good until season 3. So that's why I'm buying season 3 in a month.

But they had a thanksgiving crossover, a portland, orgeon crossover, and I can't think of the other right now

This show has merged in my mind with the McLean Stevenson Show. I really just think Stevenson climbed one rung too high on the ladder. His schtick worked great in small doses on MASH, but I just don't think he could hold your attention for a whole 30 minutes.

I have to say, looking back, that I really preferred Donna Wilkes over Krista Errickson, in the role of the older daughter, but being a recast is a very hard position to be in.

Too many crossovers, that was the problem, the network knew Hello, Larry was in the dumps that they were forcing the audience with the crossovers.

I thought the crossovers were fun.

But that was 34 years ago.
