Trivia

Lisa Ann Walter's hair was red when the original pilot was taped, and the ginger tresses appeared in many promotional photos. At the time, she was committed to the ill-fated series Breaking News (2002) (which TNT soon canceled without airing a single episode), but she reverted to blond by the time that this show went into production.

Not well-done
5 June 2002 | by buxSee all my reviews

This poorly written sitcom relies entirely on the charisma of Emeril, and he needs help. The scripts were dreadful, the supporting cast (with the exception of Urich) were pedestrian, and the entire concept seems poorly thought out. Linda Bloodworth Thomassan, who with her husband gave the much needed support to President Clinton, via advice and speech critique, seems to have lost out again. And again it is the viewers that suffer.
