The Single Guy was an NBC network sitcom created by Brad Hall, starring Jonathan Silverman in the title role.
The show first aired on September 21, 1995 and aired on Thursday nights until February of 1997. In March of 1997, it was moved to Wednesday nights until the end of its run.
Other cast members throughout the series' run consisted of Ming-Na, Ernest Borgnine, Joey Slotnick, Mark Moses, Jessica Hecht, Olivia D'Abo and Shawn Michael Howard.
While "The Single Guy" was favored enough by NBC to earn a timeslot in its coveted "Must-See-TV" Thursday night line-up, it failed to generate enthusiasm with critics and viewers & was largely written-off as one in a long line of "singles in the city" sitcoms that emerged in the mid-1990s, following the success of "Seinfeld."
On April 16, 1997, the show was cancelled after two seasons & 44 episodes.
The show was about a struggling New York writer attempts to find success and dates.
