After McLean Stevenson left M*A*S*H he had his own show, which had a nice, but short run. Then he guest starred on several others and had some parts in movies.
In 1979, he got another chance at being the lead in a sitcom. This time it was “Hello, Larry”.
In Hello, Larry, McLean plays the father of two teenage girls and is a talk show host on a Portland, Oregon radio station. This show also had a short run – January 1979 through April 1980.
It wasn’t one of the best 70s shows nor was it one of the funniest. In the clip you are about to see, there are four or five fat jokes in the first couple of minutes, then a fairly long, maudlin stretch where he talks about his divorce with his daughters.
This is just part one (I admit, I watched all three parts!) of the episode, so if you want to watch the entire episode, just wait until this clip’s done and you’ll go to part 2.
