TV Land Raymonds Salute ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – TV Land loves Everybody Loves Raymond so much, they’ll be interrupting their regularly scheduled broadcast with a tribute to the comedy.

The CBS sitcom’s series finale will be on May 16 and viewers who tune in to TV Land during that time will see 210 guys all named Raymond – one for each episode of the series.

TV Land execs say for 30 minutes, each Raymond will stand and introduce themselves and the episode they represent, while the network posts a statement reminding folks they should be watching the series finale on CBS.

This is the third time TV Land has interrupted its regular schedule to pay homage to a modern day show. The first was Seinfeld in 1998, and the second was for Friends in 2004.
