Storyline

Tiny, O-shaped Tony Kleinman and his mate, former professional jock Bernie Widman, still a popular womanizer, co-present a TV talk show in Philadelphia, mainly devoted to sports and athletes of all disciplines. Tony compensates his size by a big mouth, often cleverly phrasing but alas almost as often too quickly yapping, as all too often he only talks himself into more trouble, especially at home, where he faces a well-meaning wife, who happens to be 'always right' more often then a man can stand, especially as she isn't often really wrong, and a tomboy daughter driving anyone to despair, mouthier then him, devious, as assertive and selfish as only spoiled teenage girls can be, and convinced poor devoted dad is the scum of the earth, too embarrassing to take any notice of if it can be helped, and she can get away with an awful lot. Tony's firstborn, Mickey, is a darling boy, and a gifted golfer, but as meek as a lamb, as ambitious as a clam and as assertive as a punching ball: the ... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Mark Harmon had been in contention for the role of Tony. However, he was deemed "way too good looking" for the role. Tony Kornheiser, whose life was the basis of the show, was asked to read for the role. But the sportswriter turned the offer down stating he did not want to move to Los Angeles. See more »

Neither funny, nor entertaining.
1 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is by far the worst sitcom, since My Mother the Car. Jason Alexander is a fine actor, but his George Costanza routine does not work outside of Seinfeld. It's grating and more embarrassing than funny. I tried to give the show a chance, but after four shows I gave up on it. It gets old, seeing the same idiotic, unbelievable behavior show after show

This is the First Monday night CBS sitcom I have refused to watch in many years. With their tradition of excellent sitcoms, it's beyond comprehension why they put this clunker between such fine shows as Still Standing, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Two And a Half Men. I prayed that the show wouldn't make it past mid-season, but my prayers weren't answered. One can only hope that somebody at CBS comes to their senses, and realizes that there is absolutely no substance to the show, and that it is "not" entertaining.
