Karen is an American sitcom starring that aired on ABC beginning in January, 1975. A mid-season replacement, Karen was designed as a starring vehicle for actress Karen Valentine, who had not only scored a big success playing Alice Johnson, a high school teacher on the ABC-TV series Room 222 for four seasons, but also won an Emmy Award for her performance. Valentine was not so lucky with this series. The show was canceled after four months due to low ratings.

Karen is assisted in finding (and uncovering) corrupt politicians by Dale Busch, the cantankerous founder of Open America (played by Denver Pyle in the pilot episode, Charles Lane would later play the role).
