An episode called "A Date for Peter" that does not exactly sound too thrilling, and this was not. As a show winds down the episodes are always phoned in and uneventful and this episode was not any different. Just completely phoned in, character based humor as they call it.
I also noticed that as the show progressed, Ray Romano became less and less involved in the main storylines. It felt like he had three or four lines tonight, and for a show titled Everybody Loves Raymond, he was almost a supporting character, and the show's title was not based on him.
