RADNOR, Pa. (AP) _ Ray Romano says everybody may just have one more season to love his show.
After six seasons, the comedian’s popular television show, ``Everybody Loves Raymond,″ has a growing legion of fans. But Romano says he doesn’t want to wear out his welcome.
``It could be one more after this,″ he told TV Guide for its Oct. 5 issue. ``You don’t want to leave when you’re sliding down.″
The show features Romano as a clueless sportswriter, father and husband _ but Romano said he just doesn’t know why people love it so much.
``In the beginning, people didn’t know us and they never laughed,″ Romano said. ``Then there was a middle period where they laughed at what they thought was funny. Now it’s totally gone the other way _ they’re laughing way too much.″
In fact, he said people have just grown to love the characters.
``We could stand on stage naked and say nothing and people would think it’s funny,″ he said. ``Well, that would be pretty funny, actually.″
