Everybody Loves Raymond is an American television sitcom, starring Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Brad Garrett, Doris Roberts, and Peter Boyle. It originally ran on CBS from September 13, 1996, to May 16, 2005. It was a comic portrayal of a "real" American family that deals with everyday issues, most of those issues being conflicts amongst themselves. The show mostly revolved around the main character Ray (hence the name "Raymond" in the title). Ray is happily married to Debra (Patricia Heaton) and have three kids, oldest being a girl Ally (Madylin Sweeten) and the youngest two being twin boys Geoffrey (Sawyer Sweeten) and Michael ( Sullivan Sweeten).
