I watched it the moment it premiered as Valerie in March of 1986 on NBC. My favorite at the time was Mark, played by Jeremy Licht. He was the one I most identified with.

I had trouble keeping interest in the show once Valerie Hogan was killed off. It just seemed off to me, and the way her family reacted to her passing just made it more so. They seemed to be getting on with life a little too quickly and easily in my opinion. It was back to funny business as usual.

I remember an early episode of Valerie where the family had to put the dog Murray to sleep and how it affected them. I think the Hogans mourned the dog more than they did the mother.

Definitely off, wouldn't you say?

My mother and I used to watch The Hogan Family when it aired in reruns and then when PAX TV showed it we liked it even more. And Sandy Duncan was such a wonderful star as Valerie Harper's replacement and this sitcom I believe was the start of a whole exciting career for Sandy Duncan and this is probably the show that people will most associate Sandy Duncan with and it's a surprise that Sandy Duncan hasn't done any more sitcoms since then. And another thing I find surprising about The Hogan Family is that it's hard to believe that The Hogan Family was also the show that made Jason Bateman a household name as an actor to becoming huge on Arrested Development and now playing the voice of the character Nick Wilde in Disney's Zootopia. If The Hogan Family/Valerie ever gets released on DVD you can bet i'll buy it just to see Jason Bateman looking so awesome in the show

Valerie years. I remember watching it a few times when it first came on. Also Valerie's family, or was it Hogan family by than? I did see it when Sandy Duncan was on a couple times. Can't say it was one of my favorite shows. It was just OK, IMO!!

Never. I've yet to see a single episode. I keep hoping it'll be released on DVD.

Now, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend
When people can be so cold?
They'll hurt you, yes, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them,
Oh, but don't you let them

I wasn't watching much TV in the mid-80s when it premiered, so I didn't get to see any full episodes until I got a set from I-Offer a few years back. The quality of the last three seasons bordered on terrible, but at least I can say I've seen them all.

I think the show was equally good with Sandy Duncan and it's a shame it's not been telecast more or been released on DVD.
Still waiting for an enterprising retro network to air IT'S A LIVING
