Ed is an NBC television program co-produced by David Letterman's Worldwide Pants Incorporated, NBC Productions (now Universal Television), and Viacom Productions (now CBS Television Studios) that aired from 2000 to 2004. The hour-long comedy-drama starred Tom Cavanagh as Edward Jeremy Stevens, the protagonist, Julie Bowen as his love interest Carol Phyllis Vessey, Josh Randall as his friend Dr. Mike Burton, Jana Marie Hupp as Mike's wife Nancy, Lesley Boone as their friend Molly Hudson, and Justin Long as awkward high-school student Warren Cheswick. Other supporting cast members included Michael Genadry and Ginnifer Goodwin as Warren's friends Mark and Diane, and Michael Ian Black, Mike Starr, Rachel Cronin, and (later) Daryl Mitchell as the employees of Stuckeybowl, Ed's bowling alley. Long term guest stars included John Slattery as Dennis Martino and Sabrina Lloyd as Frankie Hector. The show was created by executive producers Jon Beckerman and Rob Burnett. David Letterman is also credited as one of the show's executive producers.
Here is an example of a fun show... I know many of the actors have moved onto better shows and it just reminds us good people can act... whatever the heck that really means.
I never got hooked on this one - if they put the whole thing on Netflix I'd check it out.ReplyDelete
God I loved that show...ReplyDelete
From the few episodes I saw of it, I like "Ed".ReplyDelete
I also like that song by Evanescence..it reminds me of the old 'power ballads' from the 80s.
I never really watched this show, but I was constantly hearing about it and how good it was, so it's a mystery how this one got dropped.ReplyDelete

I was a big fan of the show. I just thought it had a simple, yet profound premise. Wish I had a Stuckey Bowl t-shirt!ReplyDelete
I never saw Ed. I love Evanescence and that song is one of my favorites, but I hadn't ever seen the video. Very cool, thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
the show didn't manage to get under my skin, but I did love the actor. He was very nice and trustworthy.ReplyDelete
Ed was another of my favorite shows. Maybe because I used to like bowling, even though I was never good at it.ReplyDelete
Actually, I liked the character and there was always a "feel good" ending to the episodes.
And here I thought you were going to write on Mr. Ed!ReplyDelete
Hello there! Stopping by from the A to Z challenge list. What a fun blog and it's getting me acquainted with shows I have heard of, but never watched. Thanks!ReplyDelete
I remember Ed!ReplyDelete
Several of my um fans have told me to check out your site after I started with Z in my alternate alphabet challenge and made reference to zombies and a dead studio audience.ReplyDelete
And thus, thought I pop in again and see how you're doing in the other alphabet challenge. Now, I'm not familiar with that show. However, I have some great memories of when I lived in Canada and watched the Dave Letterman Show.
Be well, friend and happy alphabeting.
I remember Ed too. But maybe aging myself when I here the name "Ed" I of course think of Mr. Ed.ReplyDelete
Although not a classic or memorable show/character, Ed was at least a show with some substance, and as you said a cast of good people.ReplyDelete

I remember him from being the brother of JD in Scrubs!ReplyDelete
I almost forgot about that show. Thanks for the reminder. Great choice!ReplyDelete

Any tv show with bowling in it is usally good.ReplyDelete
I wonder what happened to Mr Ed? That show had me hooked.ReplyDelete
Interesting! I've not heard of the show before. But the song by Evanescence is one of my favorites.ReplyDelete
One of our E entries today features Eddie of Iron Maiden, a badass zombie if there ever was!
E is for Eddie
Never saw the show more than a few times but enjoyed the chemistry. So many shows...so little time. But we just got new internet (faster) and cable for free! Hello AMC and the rest of my WD friends..on demand.ReplyDelete
