Reception

Reviews

During the 1999–2000 TV season, some critics claimed Everybody Loves Raymond to be one of the greatest sitcoms in an otherwise terrible season for the genre.[3][4] Bruce Fretts of Entertainment Weekly, ranking Raymond the second-best series of 1999, claimed the cast "returned to full strength" in the season, and "no show has ever deserved its better-late-than-never ratings success more."[5] Mitchell J. Near of Lawrence Journal-World called Marie and Frank "the best TV parents (from Hell)" of the 1999–2000 TV season,[6] while Contra Costa Times ranked Raymond the second best show of the season.[7] It was also on TV Guide's list of the best shows of 1999.[8] Upon each episode's initial airing, Mike Hughes, a TV critic for Gannett News Service, included "Boob Job,"[9] "Sex Talk,"[10] "The Will,"[11] "Cousin Gerard,"[12] "Debra's Workout,"[13] "No Fat,"[14] "Left Back,"[15] "What's with Robert?,"[16] "Debra Makes Something Good,"[17] and "Confronting the Attacker" in his weekly feature of "Tonight's Must-See" programs.[18] He called "Left Back" "a terrific episode, even by this show's high standards."[15] Hal Boedeker gave a positive review of the season finale, labeling it "far more impressive than most ballyhooed sweeps programs." As he elaborated about the episode, "[Suzie] Plakson gives a memorably chilly performance, and the episode even manages a surprising cliffhanger."[19]

Awards

Emmys

Patricia Heaton gave the show its first Primetime Emmy Award win.
Patricia Heaton gave the show its first Primetime Emmy Award win.

On May 24, 2000, a truck of 9,600 videotapes, each containing four segments from season four of Raymond, was stolen from a North Hollywood parking lot; they were meant for voters of the Emmy Awards, and the robbery occurred a week before content submission to the Emmys was due. The tapes had been dubbed only hours before by a Technicolor company in Camarillo, California. Although this resulted in a delay, as HBO and Worldwide Pants had to re-produce the tapes, Rosenthal responded that he had no worries about Raymond not gaining Emmy nominations as a result.[20] On June 21, the truck was spotted by a driver in a location five minutes away from the parking lot; 9,100 of the tapes were found in the truck, and CBS donated them to hospitals and nursing homes.[21]

Everybody Loves Raymond's fourth season received nine Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including one Outstanding Comedy Series accolade for the season itself.[22] Rosenthal and Romano were also nominated for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for writing "Bad Moon Rising," Will MacKenzie was nominated for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series for his work on "The Christmas Picture,"[23] and Mike Berlin was nominated for Outstanding Cinematography for a Multi-Camera Series for "Robert's Rodeo."[24]

Five acting award nominations were for the lead performers. Romano was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series;[25] Heaton was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series;[26] Roberts was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series;[27] and Garrett and Boyle were both nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.[28] In the end, Heaton won the Lead Actress award,[26] giving Everybody Loves Raymond its first-ever Emmy win.[29] Analyzed Rosenthal, the public airing of Heaton's September 10, 2000 winning increased the popularity of Raymond's cast, which was a prominent factor of "Italy," an episode that aired a month later, garnering 22 million viewers, a record for the show.[30]

Other

Ray Romano was responsible for the show's only two Golden Globe Award nominations it ever received, one of them for acting in the fourth season.

At the 2000 American Comedy Awards, Romano won Funniest Leading Male Performer in a TV Series,[37] other nominations including Funniest Supporting Male Performer in a TV Series for Boyle, Funniest Supporting Female Performer in a TV Series for Roberts, and Funniest Television Series for the season.[38] As an ASCAP composer, Rick Marotta received a Top Television Series award from the company's Film and Television Music Awards for his music on the latter half of season three and the first half of season four.[39] The season also won Best Comedy Series awards from the American Cinema Foundation as an E Pluribus Unum award,[40] the TV Guide Awards,[41] and the Association of National Advertisers' Family Television Awards.[42]
