For the longest time, this show wasn’t on the list – I didn’t watch the show, and for some unknown reason nobody ever pointed out this obvious TV Single Dad until June of 2000.
Sipowitz finally married his girlfriend in 2003, but fortunately the Mike Brady Clause did not come into play — the series ended in 2005.
Although I got a lot of letters about this show on the same day (during a Fathers’ Day appearance on a several radio shows) credit for the “find” must go to Kid Cruise of WJYY 105.5 in Concord, NH. Thanks, Kid!
Yes, tell me lots of things about Sipowitz, but please remember this is *not* The NYPD Blue Official Fan Site, okay-dokey? Thanks.
