Last week we took note of Times TV critic Virginia Heffernan's close reading of The King of Queens. It turns out we weren't the only ones:
[I]f you review that longest-running live-action sitcom, and you praise it, the creator with the super-wholesome reputation might even reveal his unsavory secret when he calls to say he thinks he named the couple of "The King of Queens" — Heffernan — when he saw your name in a magazine.This is where we'd make the joke about Emily Litella having been inspired by Alessandra Stanley, but we're pretty sure most of you are too young to remember who that is. So we're just gonna go with Clyde Haberman as the spark behind the Jerry Stiller character on Queens.
