Nothing in Common is an American sitcom which aired on NBC from April 2 to June 3, 1987. Based on the 1986 film of the same name directed by Garry Marshall and starring Tom Hanks and Jackie Gleason, the series starred Todd Waring as David Basner and Bill Macy as David's father, Max Basner. Seven episodes were broadcast immediately after the highly-rated series Cheers, but failed to retain the strong audience of that series and was cancelled after only seven episodes had aired.

Todd Waring later reprised another Tom Hanks role in a 1988 TV sequel to Splash for The Wonderful World of Disney called Splash, Too.
