Cast and characters
Mike (Gerry Red Wilson) is head of the meat department at the supermarket. He has been married to Patty (Kellie Overbey) for ten years, and the two live in their own duplex in Queens. Patty's sister Catherine (Nadia Dajani) and her son Kieran (Michael Charles Roman) move into the apartment above Mike and Patty. Lisa (Pauley Perrette) is Patty's college-aged sister. Mitch (Ron Livingston) is Mike's best friend.
Rick Lyman of The New York Times called the series "an affable car wreck of a sitcom". Ray Richmond of Variety said that it is "an uncomfortably crude" series that "looks to be a jarringly insular, Hollywood vision of how the gentiles must live". In response to the Easter episode, which aired on April 7, 1998, the series was denounced by the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights as "the most anti-Catholic television show ever".
