I suspect that this series is not very well known because when ever you think of Shelley Long you think of Cheers. Having seen all the episodes overall this was a much better comedy sitcom than Cheers. The mini episodes that introduce the main episodes are really really good and the 1st 6 episodes are really good mainly because of the 4 central character Susan de Ruzza Jack Harold Artie and Ronny the female receptionist and they work together so well and are really very funny. However though still quite good it all changes. The receptionist has gone and has been replaced by Susans sister and there is also now a home help neither of which I found very funny. The screen time allotted to Jack and Artie is drastically reduced and quite honestly it became a girly thing. The people producing this sitcom lost an excellent opportunity to make a really good and long running sitcom by the changes they made. They blew it. But it is still well worth watching but not as good as it could have been
