Trivia

After Kevin Dunn quit the show, Bette Midler pitched the idea of having a different actor portray Roy each week, with stars ranging from Fred Willard to Chris Rock. CBS executives vetoed her suggestion and Robert Hays was ultimately given the part, which he only got to play in two episodes before the series was abruptly cancelled. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series when Bette's accompanist Oscar is playing piano it is frequently clear that is not actually playing because the position of his hands is nowhere near the actual range of what is being played. See more »

The best tv show EVER!
16 March 2001 | by DixieCarterSee all my reviews

Oh my gosh, I loved this show, I am so sad it is cancelled, that was my Wednesday nights, watching Bette, I didn't miss one episode, not one, and I couldn't be disturbed while watching it, I am just so disappointed that it's gone, especially after it won a People's Choice Award and a TV Guide Channel award! I wish it would continue to be on and I just want to know why it was cancelled, I mean the cast was great!!!
