Trivia

Creator Tony Vitale first pitched the show as a vehicle for Harvey Fierstein and Andrew Dice Clay in the early '90s, but he was shot down by executives who claimed a show with a gay lead wouldn't fly. The next thing he knew, Fierstein was on The Arsenio Hall Show (1989) talking about the project. In order to retain the rights, Vitale quickly turned it into a stage play, and the film version, Kiss Me, Guido (1997), followed a few years later. Still he couldn't get a network to touch the material as a weekly show. After Will & Grace (1998) became a hit, Vitale again pitched the story and finally got a greenlight for the series. See more »

Quotes

Vern: Warren, I'm sitting here reading "Peanuts" and it just occurred to me, do you think Shroeder could be gay?
Warren: What?
Vern: Well, think about it, you know. Everyone's outside playing baseball. He's inside playing the piano. Lucy's throwing herself at him like a tart. He could care less. And if I'm not mistaken, he colors his hair. . .

A gay/straight show that makes me laugh out loud.
14 July 2001 | by (Johannesburg, South Africa) – See all my reviews

I've been watching this show since the day it began. I LOVE watching Bateman and Nucci together - their chemistry is amazing. Whoever writes for this show (I keep telling myself to see who the writers are so I can remember but I keep forgetting) are superb! I also have to rave about Mapa and DeLuise who star as the extreme versions of a gay and straight man respectively - I literally role around on the floor when they do their stuff. It's also nice for a change that the shows chuckles don't only come from the supporting cast (as is the case with 'Will & Grace'). Please let them keep this show - it's one of my favourite.
