Did You Know?

In this show, Tony Shalhoub plays a carefree type personality whereas Neil Patrick Harris plays a germaphobe. After the show was canceled, they both have successful careers playing the opposite roles. Tony as the germaphobe in "Monk" and Neil as the carefree Barney in "How I Met Your Mother".See more »

The Greatest Show Unjustly Cancelled, 12 April 2001
Author: Thor2000 from Collinsport, Maine

The NBC execs have quite a wierd streak going as they cancel great shows the general public loves and goes wild for in order to try shows that won't stand a chance. We've all seen Working, Unsolved Mysteries, Quantum Leap and the new Dark Shadows go down the pipe. Great shows, loved by whole cults of loyal fans, MURDERED by idiot and blind TV execs working at NBC. Stark Raving Mad was the Odd Couple of the 90s with Tony Shalhoub of Wings (another great show that ended too soon for me) playing a psychotic Stephen King horror writer with Neil Patrick Harris playing a Niles Crane literary agent as his foil and target of abuse. Rounded out with Ed McClintock, Heather Paige Kent and the beautiful Dorie Barton, the show had great scripts, funny jokes and hysterical unpredictable situations. It was Halloween all year round with this show, and Halloween itself was a little more surreal with this show on the air. The only thing that could possibly ruin this show would be an idiot tv exec with a grudge against a happy viewing public. this show will be sorely missed.
