I’m trying to remember what this show was. The main character is played by an actress who appeared in a couple of Frasier episodes, and has one of those loud, brassy, and slightly Fran Drescher-ish voices–in fact very much like the one who plays Grace on Will and Grace, but I don’t think that’s her.
The woman works at some sort of office job, and is fairly successful at it, but evid
ently lives with her parents (IIRC). Either her brother or father, or both, are dentists. She looked reasonably attractive physically, but a major premise of the show was that she couldn’t get a date to save her life, much less sustain a relationship.
One scene I remember: She goes out clothes shopping with her mother, and in the end leaves wearing a dress that another customer left in the dressing room. As she leaves, she invites the poor woman, bereft of her dress, to help herself to her crumpled bluejeans, that she left behind on the floor of the dressing room. The point is apparently that having a nice dress on is cause for the first time she’s felt good about herself since the 1900s, or something like that.
What was this show, and who was the actress? I kind of liked the show and was sorry it didn’t make it.
I don’t know what show it could be, I’m just posting to say not to give up hope. A while ago I posted trying to find a specific episode of a radio show . I did not know the name of the episode, which show it was from, or who acted in it, or any character names.
Dopers got it in short order. Somone will know your show.
