Trivia

Brandon Tartikoff wrote that when Valerie Harper left the show and the title was changed to "The Hogan Family", the staff privately called it "Throw Momma from the Series".
Many sets used in scenes inside the house were also used in Step by Step (1991) and Family Matters (1989).
Even though Jeremy Licht and Luis Daniel Ponce played twins, Jeremy is actually 20 months older than Luis.

Though Josh Taylor was a regular on the show, the first two seasons only had him as an occasional character, appearing in only two or three scenes on each episode. When Sandy Duncan took over Valerie Harper's role in the third season, the producers decided to change Taylor's character to be home more often.

Because of casting changes the name of the show was changed twice during its run. It was originally simply called "Valerie," to capitalize on the fact Valerie Harper was the star of the show. After she left at the end of the second season, the title was changed to, "Valerie's Family," even though Harper was no longer on the show, due in part to the hope she might return. For the fourth season through the end of the sixth, it was called, "The Hogan Family".
