When people ask me what my favorite show is i always mention Pig Sty. Even though it only lasted 13 episodes, i thought the characters were great and the plots were funny.
I wish that this show went on one of the big 4, instead of UPN because it wasn't given a fair chance. I once saw the ratings breakdown for the show and it usually was in the 45-65 range, which for a startup station I would assume isn't that bad. I think a lot of the reason for the show being there might had to do with the Star Trek lead in, but looking at ratings for the crap UPN has put on since, this would still be one of there top rated shows.
From the 2 posts above it gets mentioned that this show was like an all-male version of friends, i agree, but on this show i could actually relate to all the guys in some shape or form.
I am just happy that i started taping this show during it's run, because to this day i still pull out the tapes i have of the show every 6 months or so and watch the 9 episodes i got taped(if i could only find those other 4 somehow).
I really think UPN missed the boat on this one, if they left the show on air for a season or 2 more i think they the show would become more popular and they could have had a mild hit(to their standards) that they could have built there station around.
