(from CBS's press release) The multiple Emmy Award-nominated comedy series revolves around successful sportswriter Ray Barone (Ray Romano, who won an Emmy for the role in 2002), who lives on Long Island with his wife, Debra (Patricia Heaton, who won an Emmy for the role in 2000 and 2001), their 12-year-old daughter, Ally (Madylin Sweeten), and 8-year-old twin sons, Michael and Geoffrey (Sullivan and Sawyer Sweeten). That's the good news. The bad news? Ray's meddling parents, Frank (Peter Boyle) and Marie (Doris Roberts, who won Emmy Awards for the role in 2001, 2002 and 2003), live directly across the street and manage to infiltrate their son's home to an extent unparalleled in television history. Rays brother, Robert (Brad Garrett, who won Emmy Awards for the role in 2002 and 2003), who is newly married to Debras best friend Amy (Monica Horan), is an obsessive-compulsive cop who loves his brother but resents his success because, after all, everybody loves Raymond.
