Hogan Family

It starts out as a standard family sitcom called ``Valerie'' about a mom juggling the demands of work, three boys and a frequently absent airline pilot husband. Then after star Valerie Harper has a falling-out with producers, her character is killed off. Enter Sandy Duncan as the live-in aunt and surrogate mother figure, which leads to renaming the show first ``Valerie's Family'' and then ``The Hogan Family.'' In addition to light sitcom fare, the show tackles ``very special episode'' topics like the death of a parent, drunken driving, teen sex and AIDS.

Mar 01, 1986
