Emmy winners Patricia Heaton before she was Debra Barone plays the daughter in this sitcom where she is an executive producer of a New York City television show. Her mother played by Alice's Linda Lavin arrives from Ohio with opinions and criticisms which invited her to become part of the television show leaving her family and friends behind in Ohio. With Heaton and Lavin, you really believe they are mother and daughter because they both appear to be doing their best with what they have in the scripts which are about average but superior to today's sitcoms. In an era where sitcoms were they were plentiful, Room for Two was about average and who knows about Heaton's upcoming sitcom with Kelsey Grammar. Heaton's potential appears in this show. Across veteran actress Linda Lavin, Heaton comes across as a match made in sitcom heaven.
