This show gets way too much flak. Sure, it is without a doubt inferior to sitcoms such as Friends, Seinfeld, and Drew Carey (to name a few), but with those shows in reruns (or finished) during the summer, having this show kept TV alive.
The concept alone made this show decent. While the bulk of people dislike the constant name-droppings and the appearances of Stallone, Swayze, and Travolta (that's Frank, Don, and Joey), I thought that was rather funny.
The acting wasn't anything special, with some exceptions. Harry Hamlin, an established dramatic actor, surprisingly comes off very funny. And Anne Haney's grandmother character was always around to be the wisecracker (for season 1; I was disappointed they didn't bring her back for season 2). Then, of course, there's the beautiful Marnette Patterson, whose air-headed daughter character was actually quite charming (just don't look for her to be on Dawson's Creek anytime soon - not that that's a bad thing).
I didn't catch every episode, but I wish I had.
