Please explain it to me
In the UK we get to see a lot of US sitcoms. I've laughed out loud watching some of them (Cheers, Soap, Bilko, Seinfeld, 3rd Rock, Scrubs, M*A*S*H) and enjoyed many of the rest (Frasier, Golden Girls, Friends, Taxi, Roseanne, Grace Under Fire, Cosby, Drew Carey, Dharma & Greg, Cybill, Dream On, Larry Sanders, Ellen, Rhoda, ...).

So can someone please explain why this show is so successful? I've seen about seven episodes of Everyone Loves Raymond. It's OK. There are a few funny lines. One episode where the wife enjoyed dancing with the brother was pretty good. But Emmy nominations! Highest paid sitcom actor ever! Please explain it to me.
