Romano never loved name of his TV sitcom

NEW YORK, May 6 (UPI) -- Actor Ray Romano says he never liked the title of his CBS sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond," which is wrapping up its ninth and final season.

Romano said he worried viewers would miss the self-deprecating humor in the title, borrowing a line his brother would say sarcastically, the Chicago Tribune reported.

While CBS told Romano he could come up with a different name before the show started, none of his ideas tested as well as "Everybody Loves Raymond."

Then CBS said he could rename the show if it hit the Top 10.

"But we didn't make it to the Top 10 until the third year. By then, they said, 'It's too late to change now,'" Romano said.

Romano said he was interested in movies and stand-up comedy, but not another TV sitcom.

"Who knows? I'm probably going to be riding around on a bike, yelling, Remember me?'" he said.
