Dear Lovey Hart: I Am Desperate
Original Air Date
May 19, 1976
The award-winning ABC Afterschool Special series closes its fourth season with one of its most memorable and compelling episodes. When teenager Carrie Wasserman (Susan Lawrence) agrees to write an advice column for her high-school newspaper, she regards the assignment as a joke. Accordingly, she uses her "Lovey Hart" alter ego to give flippant and sarcastic responses to those writing in. But it isn't all funny when some of Carrie's readers begin taking her advice seriously -- and in one instance, the results could be disastrous! A potent lesson in handling responsibility (and accepting consequences if you don't!), Dear Lovey Hart: I Am Desperate is based on a book by Bob Rodgers.
