Trivia

During a 2018 interview on SiriusXM's The Michelle Collins Show, Cybill Shepherd said that this show was abruptly canceled, despite its popularity, because she refused to have sex with CBS executive Les Moonves. She recounted that he invited her to a private dinner at which he complained that "his wife didn't turn him on, some mistress didn't turn him on," and then he invited her to come home with him. She refused, and "quite shortly" afterward, the showrunners started getting executive notes forbidding them to discuss topics (such as menstruation and menopause) that were previously fine, and soon after that the show was canceled. This was one of many accusations of sexual misconduct and assault levied against Moonves in 2018. See more »

Love this show!
28 July 2004 | by spyceworksSee all my reviews

I have a general recollection of this show when it first aired but somehow didn't get into it at the time. Now that it is running on Oxygen and I've been watching - it is a hoot! I simply love Christine Baranski (possibly fueled by her fun performance as John Larroquette's -sp?- wife in a recent TV show).

The two of them are similar to Patsy & Eddy of Absolutely Fabulous - just not quite as weird.

Sure hope they will put the show on DVD. I know as soon as I start to record on VHS, they will. lol

It is a show that one has to get into the characters and that may take watching a few times. (Quite similar to the series "Soap" in that way) Once you do , it is addictive!
