Valerie Harper fought with Lorimar producers over creative directions of Valerie the TV show and got fired; she was replaced by Sandy Duncan shortly thereafter. Similarly, Roseanne fought with Roseanne producer Matt Williams about the direction of her show, just a year later. The difference being Matt Williams got let go, not Roseanne. As a joke, during the whole kerfuffle, Roseanne changed the name on her door to Sandy Duncan. This is also ironic because years later; during the Roseanne reboot; Roseanne went on a racist twitter spree and then the show was promptly cancelled. There was then speculation in the media if the show could be resurrected the same way Valerie Harper's show was; by killing off Valerie Harper's character, who had also been fired, and having the show continue as "The Hogan Family". Valerie Harper's show continued for several seasons as "The Hogan Family" (and even cracked the top 30 ratings list one year) after Harper had been fired. The network brass at ABC pondered whether it would be possible to continue Roseanne without it's star; as "The Connner Family". Eventually ABC did greenlight "The Conners", an official spinoff to Roseanne. This is very similar to the situation with Valerie Harper getting fired in 1987 and her sitcom being renamed "The Hogan Family" afterwords. And industry insiders are predicting a similar result; that the sitcom will run without it's titular head for a couple years, and then get cancelled. See more »
I can't remember a worse show than this. Family Hogan is boring and meaningless. I never found a laughable joke. This must be product of a lame mind. Pathetic from the very beginning, more ridiculous even than `7th Heaven', although Linkan-3 can doubt it. Too moralist, the subjects are never smart. But the Hogans will please old ladies who had never seen that machine called TV.
