Mad About You is an American sitcom that aired on NBC from September 23, 1992, to May 24, 1999. It is being released on DVD and syndicated for reruns on Oxygen Network and Nick at Nite (although rarely airing on both) in the U.S. and on other stations across the globe.The show starred Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt as a newly married couple in New York City. Reiser played Paul Buchman, a documentary film maker. Hunt played Jamie Stemple Buchman, a public relations specialist. Near the end of the show's run, the couple had a baby daughter, whom they named Mabel.The series focused mainly on the newlyweds while they dealt with everything from humorous daily minutiae to major struggles. The show's willingness to find comedy in realistic situations and observational dialogue garnered it comparisons to Seinfeld, another NBC comedy about thirty-somethings in New York City. Mad About You was more sentimental and light-hearted whereas Seinfeld focused on dark humor and characters.
