John Larroquette Show, The (NBC 1993-1996)

Published

on

A dark edged sitcom starring John Larroquette as former alcoholic John Hemingway. Having lost his job, his wife and family, the bright John found himself working as a night manager at a run down, none too salubrious bus station called The Crossroads (in St Louis).

The regulars included snack bar operator Dexter, slobbish janitor Gene, John’s assistant Mahalia and two cops Hannah and Eggers. Also around was a typical prostitute with a heart of gold character called Carly.

The show was seen by the network execs as being too down at heel and so on in 1995 major changes occurred with the staff of the station all moving from the night shift to the day shift.

By this stage John was in an off and on again relationship with Nurse Catherine Merrick, still in one bizarre plot twist he decided to marry Carly the (now former) prostitute before learning (during the wedding ceremony) that Catherine was carrying his child.

The show was cancelled with several storylines still up in the air.
