Are you surprised by My Boys' success?

A: I think there's really no rhyme or reason as to what keeps a show on air. Surely it's a numbers game, but some of the best shows get canceled and some shows where you don't totally understand why they're on the air stay on for 15 or 20 years. It's like: "They're still on? They're graying!" All I can do is enjoy it and trust that the writers are writing really funny, topical stuff and staying true to the characters. Then I just hope for the best and have fun. Since we only do nine episodes, we shoot for only three months out of the year. It feels like sort of this funny summer camp.
