    The "Everybody Loves Ray" thread on the Journo side got me to thinking about this.

    NBC believes a sitcom based on your life will return the Peacock to network TV dominance. So, you get to help cast the show.

    Hopefully it will remain on the air longer than Kornheiser's version. I can't remember how many seasons they got out of the Dave Barry version as played by Harry Anderson.

    That was Dave's World and they got 4 seasons out of it.
    One of the highlights was the theme song - Southside Johnny singing Billy Joel's "You May Be Right"
