TV Junkie: Interview with Ray Romano of TNT's 'Men of a Certain Age'
On December 6th the second season of "Men of a Certain Age" returns to TNT and coincidentally the first season is available on DVD as of today. TNT has been re-running episodes in preparation for the new season so now you have several options to catch up on one of the best shows to (barely) debut in 2009.
Despite its awkward premiere date, the critically acclaimed show about 3 men realistically negotiating their way through middle age, managed to secure an Emmy nomination for Andre Braugher (who we interviewed last year), who equally shares screen time with series co-creator Ray Romano, and co-star Scott Bakula (who we've talked to a couple times).
We managed to ask Romano a few questions last week and we focused on the process of writing the program with co-creator Mike Royce. If you haven't watched "Men of a Certain Age" because you weren't a fan of Romano's "Everybody Loves Raymond," you have to know that "Men of a Certain Age" is a completely different show: it's a drama with real-life humor, it's shot single camera, there's no laugh-track, etc.
