Did You Know?


Kevin James acted 8 times in Everybody Loves Raymond (1996). In his first six appearances, during seasons one and two, his role name was "Kevin Daniels". In the final 2 appearances, during season three, he portrayed his "Doug Heffernan" character role from The King of Queens (1998). This is probably because the final appearance as "Kevin" took place in May 18th 1998, while The King of Queens (1998) did not debut until September 21st, 1998. See more »


In Season 2, Episode 25, Raymond meets Debra's priest Father Hubley, in a flashback episode featuring Ray and Debra's wedding. However, throughout the rest of the series, Father Hubley is portrayed as the Barone family's priest. This portrayal includes the Season 6, Episode 24 flashback episode during which Marie brings Father Hubley to Debra's house long before the wedding. See more »

among the meanest, most un-funny shows ever
17 February 2009 | by (seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

i've never understood the appeal of this show. there are no sympathetic characters, everyone is yelling all the time, and they all appear to hate each other. perhaps that is the family dynamic of the target audience of the show, and if so, it's just another example of the 'lowest common denominator' thinking of Hollywood. how there were enough people to be duped into watching over 200 episodes of this mean-spirited, dull, repetitive dreck i'll never know. it is as though the writers came up with ONE idea for a pilot: a slow-witted dullard marries a conniving, bitter woman who never stops yelling, then moves next door to his parents--a conniving, bitter woman who hates the other conniving, bitter woman, and a grumpy old man; and then never came up with another one. This show is absolutely the nadir of American comedy.
