Most Successful Sitcom Ever
- Which husband was the first one? (i.e. not the one that was the villain in Revenge of the Nerds) Tuf-Kat
- As indicated in the entry, the character's name is "Marcy Rhoades D'Arcy;" the first husband was Steve Rhoades, the second, played by Ted McGinley, was Jefferson D'Arcy.
- I also removed the bit about Christina Applegate being the only character to accomplish much during the show's run. Ed O'Neill was involved in a few projects during Married...with Children's lifetime, namely Dutch, the Wayne's World movies, Little Giants, and several more. -- goatasaur
Please Include Left Out Bundy Icon
The Bundy Icon "Toaster Leavins" was not included. Please include this item!
One quick note about Jefferson, there were several references to his past in which he might have been a spook (CIA??) of some sort.
I believe the show first started in weekday US syndication in 1991-2 (well before FX) on Chris Craft stations such as WWOR New York and WRBW Orlando. and can still be seen in a few markets such as KTBU Houston
The more I look at this page the more I realize it needs a complete and total rewrite. There's all kinds of facts on the page that are misinterprited, misrepresented, unclarifited (i.e. I'm not sure why the Seven portion of the article refers to Jumping the Shark, except that it's someone's notion that when seven was introduced they were in fact jumping the shark, which is an opinon anyway), outright erroneous, and in many cases items that were addressed in an episode for the purposes of comedy are represented as factual despite being later negated. I don't know who to contact about a rewrite, and I think it would be a bit presumtous to do it myself, so i'm hoping someone will respond to this. Smokachu13 (talk) 1:13 AM, 6 June 2008
Original cast controversy
When I first took notice of this article's title, what immediately struck me was the random space placed after the ellipsis. "Why," thought I, "has no one moved this page to Married...with Children, thereby fixing this error?"
No sooner had I had this thought than I took a step back, asking myself an even better question: "Why, instead, has no one moved this page to Married with Children? After all, the show's title, as it appears in the actual title sequence, has no ellipsis at all!"
I find this rather perplexing. How did we collectively get it into our individual minds that there was an ellipsis in the title? Why did it not dawn on me until today that I never once saw an ellipsis on the actual show?
More to the point, is there any evidence that would suggest that the official title of the show does include an ellipsis? If not, then I would suggest making a move.
Contrariwise, if there is evidence that suggests that the official title includes an ellipsis, I'd be interested in reading about it. Indeed, the information may even be worthy to mention in the article. A short explanation (assuming the ellipsis is part of the official title) explaining why the discrepancy between the official title and the title-as-it-appears-in-the-title-sequence would certainly be within the scope of Wikipedia.
(But, even if we can verify that the ellipsis is part of the official title, we would still need to verify that the space after the ellipsis is also part of the official title. For, if it is not, then the page ought definitely be moved to Married...with Children.)
