The show underwent major changes between the first and third seasons. Though it was always fairly highly rated, test audiences responded more strongly to supporting characters than they did to the main cast. Most of the main cast was dropped in the second season (except Arye Gross) and the character of Audrey, who had previously only been in one episode, became a regular, as did Joe. See more »

I loved the first season when it still was called "These Friends Of Mine". Maggie Wheeler (Anita) and Holly Fulger (Holly) were marvellous and played with perfect timing. I think it was a really bad decision to drop them though Clea Lewis and Joely Fisher were quite funny too. With the changes made after the first episodes Ellen's character started to dominate everything and everybody but at least the scripts were still on top. Though I like Ellen DeGeneres a lot in my opinion soon it all got worse and worse. First, I totally dislike Jeremy Piven, so I was sorry to see Arye Gross leave the show. A gay person myself I got really annoyed when finally everything was built around Ellen's sexuality. I didn't watch it until the end since I'm not a fan of sitcoms without jokes.
