Life with Roger is an American sitcom television series created by Howard Adler and Robert Griffard, that aired on The WB from August 25, 1996 to March 30, 1997, as part of its 1996–97 schedule.


Life with Roger starred Mike O'Malley as Roger Hoyt, a formerly suicidal homeless young man dissuaded from jumping off of a bridge by Jason Fuller (Maurice Godin), a man whose car had coincidentally broken down on the bridge just before Roger could complete his planned jump. Jason, a medical doctor, talks Roger out of going through with his suicide plan, and Roger repairs his car. They eventually become roommates when Roger talks Jason out of marrying his fiancėe, and typical sitcom mayhem ensues. Hallie Todd co-starred as Jason's sister, Lanie Clark, and Meredith Scott Lynn played Myra, Jason's former fiancée.

The series premiered on August 25, 1996, airing twenty episodes, before being canceled in March 1997 due to low ratings.[1]
