Norm was a sitcom about a regular guy having regular problems, but not too many people noticed this show since it lacked the smarmy, self-centered humor that NBC's Friends had in copious quantities.
Norm MacDonald (A SNL alum) plays Norm Henderson, an ex-hockey player who has to do 5 years of community service for his gambling or face jail time. The show also had Artie Lange as his loutish buddy as well as co-workers at the social work center played by Max Wright, Ian Gomez & during the last episodes, Nikki Cox.
I was crestfallen when they canceled this show with its take on everyday problems just because it lacked the very "we're better than you" attitude that Friends had.
For shame, ABC...
