Mac and Peggy Ferguson face the opposite of an empty nest when their two grown children plus two grandchildren move in. Son Chris is returning to school while Janet is divorcing. Joining them is Peggy's mother in small town Illinois.
After a divorce, middle-aged Larry Alder moved from Los Angeles to Portland, Oregon with his teenage daughters Diane and Ruthie. He landed a job as a radio talkshow host, where he dealt with his attractive producer Morgan and his corpulent engineer Earl. Larry also hung out with legendary Harlem Globetrotter Meadowlark Lemon, who owned a Portland sporting goods store. Written by

Even though this show was considered a spin off of Diff'rent Strokes (1978), the connection between the two shows wasn't explained until a few months after the show premiered. Since both shows were produced by the same company, it was decided to have a plot where Larry Alder and Phillip Drummond (McLean Stevenson and Conrad Bain respectively) were old army buddies from Korea as a way of having the shows cross over and boost the ratings of Hello Larry.

Having watched this abomination in '79-'80,it's easy to see why NBC was the worst! It's also easy to see that MacLean Stevenson just couldn't catch a decent break in the sitcom world! "The MacLean Stvenson Show","In The Beginning",this humiliating show and a last ditch effort on ABC known as "Condo",(which I thought was the best out of the 4!)
The only other places to find Maclean between this and his passing are Disney's,"The Cat From Outer Space" and a guest shot on NBC's,"The Golden Girls". A few years after that he was gone. All I have to say about "Hello Larry" is if it had gotten better writers,it could have been something. It's inane,silly,stupid and even annoying!
If through some twist of fate it ends up DVD,I caution you to think before you spend! Bad enough one ever had to spend time just watching it. 0 stars because even "BJ and The Bear" was better than this!
