I know that Hope Lange and Dick Van Dyke had a weekly show at one time, but I can’t remember what it was called or how long it lasted. Can you help me?

The New Dick Van Dyke Show debuted in 1971 on CBS and lasted for three seasons. Van Dyke played Dick Preston, the host of a local TV talk show in Phoenix. Lange starred as his wife, Jenny, and they had a daughter, Annie, played by Angela Powell. In the third season, the family moved to Hollywood when Dick took a job on a soap opera. The show was created by Carl Reiner, the man behind the original Dick Van Dyke Show.
