Everybody Loves Raymond (1996–2005) is a sitcom that aired on CBS. The show revolved around the family of Ray Barone, a Lynbrook, Long Island native.

Based on the real life experiences of Ray Romano, Everybody Loves Raymond premiered on September 13, 1996, on CBS. It originally held the Friday night time slot, a time period traditionally known for its poor ratings. Everybody Loves Raymond was no different. CBS executives, however, saw a promising series, and moved the show to a better slot on Monday nights, where it outshone its competition. It continued to hold that time slot until the end of its run. For a few years in a row in the late 1990s, the show consistently held Top 5 ratings. The series finale was broadcast on May 16, 2005, though old episodes are still rerun in syndication.
