Premise: Ray Romano hit the sitcom stratosphere with this gem based on his stand-up routine. It's about a Long Island sportswriter and his intrusive parents, who live (in)conveniently across the street from him, his wife and their three children. Romano and costars Patricia Heaton, Doris Roberts, Peter Boyle and Brad Garrett were virtual Emmy-nomination machines and scored eight wins among them. Boyle alone, curiously, never took home the prize.
