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 canceled. 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 »

My Favorite New Show
20 December 2000 | by cheraubSee all my reviews

I'm really impressed with all of the great new shows this season and this one is at the top of my list. I've been a fan of Bette Midlers for a long time and right now shes at her best. I've watched it since the beginning and haven't missed an episode. Its really really funny. I hope it does not get cancelled!
