<i>Everybody Loves Raymond</i> was a popular and critically-acclaimed television series that aired on CBS from 1996 to 2005. The sitcom, created by Philip Rosenthal, was a semi-autobiographical look at the intergenerational Italian-American Barone family of Lynbrook, Long Island, NY. Raymond (Ray Romano), a sports journalist, is married to Debra (Patricia Heaton), homemaker and mother of children Ally, Michael, and Geoffery. Across the street, Raymond’s parents Frank (Peter Boyle) and Marie Barone (Doris Roberts) share a home with Raymond’s brother Robert, a New York City police officer. Each episode of the show mined familial and spousal conflict for relatable humor. In its nine seasons, <i>Everybody Loves Raymond</i> was nominated for 69 Emmy Awards, winning 15, and frequently ranked in the top ten programs on television in the Nielsen ratings.
