Dave's World

Show Summary

Dave's World is based on Pulitzer Prize-winning humorist Dave Barry's syndicated columns. Dave is a child of the '60s trying to survive in the '90s, confronting the absurdities of life - as husband, father and semi-responsible citizen. He muddles through with the help of his wife, Beth, who's weary of being the responsible one; sons Tommy, 12, and Willie, 8; his college buddies, Kenny, whose claim to fame is that he records books-on-tape, and Shel, an overworked plastic surgeon who is still bitter over his not-so-recent divorce. Adding to their hectic lives is Mia, Dave's bubbly assistant who just moved in next door with her husband-to-be, Eric, the Barry's jack-of-all-trades handyman. The "framing device" for each episode is Dave at work on his newspaper column. The episode then illustrates his inspiration for the column. The theme song was a version of "You May Be Right" sung by Southside Johnny.

    Dave's World is based on the writings of Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Dave Barry. Harry Anderson stars as Dave and the show opens with Dave doing a voice-over of the column he is writing. The theme of the column mirrors the events of the episode. The show is a by-the-numbers family sitcom, but Mr. Anderson and the rest of the cast are immensely likable. The show ran out steam near the end of its run, but the first three seasons are great.moreless

    • Where are the fans???
      Why does this show not have the fan support that others of it kind have? I really enjoyed this show but never see it in rerun.
