Inside Schwartz is an American sitcom starring Breckin Meyer as the titular character. The show was produced by 20th Century Fox Television and National Broadcasting Company and first aired on NBC on Thursday Night at 8:30 EST.


After losing a long-time girlfriend, minor-league sportscaster Adam Schwartz's (Meyer) dating life is illustrated by sports highlights (as presented by Fox Sports Net) in which various pro sports personalities appear. For instance, when Adam's date reveals that she has three children a referee appears and makes the call "Too many players on the field".




The series was cancelled midway into its first season despite having an average household rating of 9.8 and being ranked 16th among all programs in the ratings.[why?][1]
