Welcome to the 90s NBC Must See TV Single-in-the-City Sitcom Universe!
The Single Guy WAS a show…starring Jonathan Silverman, Joey Slotnick, Ming-Na Wen, Jessica Hecht and Ernest Borgnine!
Right smack in the middle of Friends and Seinfeld, NBC had a show that seemed to draw on aspects of both shows to create a bridge between the two. Seinfeld was about single people who want to be single. Friends is about single people who want to be married. Along came The Single Guy, a show about one single man amongst a group of married friends. Late 90s television was the era of the single 30-something hanging out in New York city, so why wasn’t this show a huge hit? Brynn, Aaron & Barry take to the Manhattan streets (but really the Seinfeld backlot in LA) to find out.
