Confused Does anyone remember "Hot L Baltimore"

It didn't last long. It had the actor who played David on One day at a time.

I watched it every week but I was only 9 at the time so I don't remember much about it but I know I did like it. James Cromwell and Charlotte Rae were in it too.

I remember it. I'm pretty sure it was a Norman Lear production and I remember it being a show that many of my friends' parents wouldn't let them watch, but mine, God bless 'em, did.

I was about eight at the time, I think. I recall Rae and Cromwell and a hispanic "lady of the evening" and Conchata Ferrell also as a prostitute. Seems there were two older gay characters in it, and maybe a lesbian as well. And while I wasn't probably the most discriminating viewer in the world back then, I think it was pretty funny.

I watched a couple of them at UCLA a few years ago. Doesn't hold up very well IMO.

I thought you recorded all the eps from in 75 and had them in a box inside your basement?

Well you can't expect a midseason replacement to compete with the Rockford Files on Friday Nights which was a top 15 show at the time. That's why Hot L Baltimore was ranked #68 after the 74-75 season

This was an ugly show. Lear was a hot property at the time and ABC was desperate for anything that might work (things would change in short order for the third ranked network) so they took a chance on Hot L. This was more for a small off Broadway type playhouse than network television in the old pre cable days.

It's understandable why the network took a chance on because of all his other shows at that time being Top 10 Shows

Along with Al "Ed Hall" Freeman from One Life To Live I liked the show because of Conchata Farrell, she had a funny laugh.

I'd like to see it sometime, just out of curiousity.

I never watched "Hot L Baltimore" but I remember it because my mom told me that I couldn't watch it, for some reason. In fact only one of the kids in my neighborhood was allowed to watch it, and he was the kid whose parents let him do whatever he wanted.

I remember it. As I recall it wasn't that good.

I remember the show was based on the play of the same title by Lanford Wilson. It was also one of Norman Lear's few flops.
