Edie McClurg and Judith Kahan co-starred in the Valerie years as her neighbors. Coincidentally, both played Grace the secretary in different incarnation of Ferris Bueller's Day Off: McClurg in the original 1986 movie, and Kahan in the short-lived NBC series in 1990. See more »
This show really belonged to Valerie Harper, no offense to her replacement Sandy Duncan. Harper left the show under uncertain circumstances. Regardless, the show and network wrote her off sadly. While on, she was the mother to three boys and a pilot husband who was often absent. The cast was first rate including Edie McClurg as a neighbor, Christine Ebersole as her snobby unmarried sister-in-law, and the boys played by Jason Bateman, Jeremy Licht, and Danny Ponce. Ponce and Licht played fraternal twins who were as opposite as night and day. They touched on some issues like AIDS and homosexuality and other issues in this series but the show never fully recovered from the blow of Harper's absence.
