TV TuesdayWeek 11 - Everybody may or may not love Raymond
Ray Romano and co. just signed on for one more year of Everybody Loves Raymond, for record salaries. Situation comedies have been popular on TV since the beginning, with Lucy and co. being one of the first. So what's your take on sitcoms?
1. What's your favorite sitcom?
My Favorite sitcom is The Dick Van Dyke Show. Second favorite is M*A*S*H.
2. Is there a sitcom you really don't like?
Everybody Loves Raymond. Bleh.
3. Which sitcom did you used to like, but now it just seems too hokey?
I loved "Grace Under Fire" for the first couple of years it was on, but one season they inexplicably aged her son Quint about 5 years, Brett Butler really tanked with the booze and drugs and the bottom fell out of the show. A shame.
~Bonus~ If your life was a sitcom, what would the title be?
Barry'd Treasure, about a real family with intelligent parents and humorous situations raising small children in a small town in America. No Roseanne, Ed Bundy or Bob Sagett in sight.
Thanks for playing, and be kind to Insane Faery, your new TV Tuesday guru. I've enjoyed playing along with you, and wish you many more seasons of fun! ~ Isabella
