Exclamation The Late McLean Stevenson Admitted That He Screwed Up 'Hello Larry'

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...e+sitcom&hl=en

In an interview dated April 14th, 1979 Mclean Stevenson said he felt responsible for the failure (Thus far) of his show 'Hello Larry.' He said he created the character Larry as a buffoon and then decided to "smarten him up" midway through the season. He also felt responible for its failure because he decreed himself the New Bonnie Franklin of TV despite his show being a lackluster ratings sitcom.

Hello Larry should have been a hit. I don't really understand why it wasn't.

I couldn't see the article, but I wonder if he thought being the "New Bonnie Franklin" was a good or bad thing? He was a funny guy on talk shows, but sadly, as an actor, he was the "New Bonnie Franklin."

I've been watching the early M*A*S*H episodes again -- what a terrific job McLean did. Perfect casting.
