Ray Barone (Ray Romano) is a successful sportswriter for New York Newsday and the father of a young daughter and two young twin sons.
Raymond lives in Lynbrook on Long Island, loves his wife, Debra (Patricia Heaton) and his kids, Ally (Madylin Sweeten), Michael (Sullivan Sweeten) and Geoffrey (Sawyer Sweeten).
In fact, his life would be perfect except that his house is across the street from the home of his parents, Marie (Doris Roberts) and Frank (Peter Boyle), who are always dropping in on Ray and his family, trying to impose their way of doing things on him.
Raymond’s older brother, Robert (Brad Garrett) – a hulking, divorced policeman – lives with his parents, and Raymond is constantly asked to reassure his insecure brother that he is not the loser his parents seem to think he is.
Everybody Loves Raymond was loosely based on comedian Ray Romano’s real-life experiences, which had been the basis for his stand-up comedy act.
