After the show moved back to Wednesday for a two-week trial in an unsuccessful attempt to regain ratings, it was cancelled in May 2001.The series finale was titled "The Internet Show", an episode in which fans of the show voted on the outcome online.Focusing on the lives of twenty-somethings Pete Dunville, Michael Bergen and Sharon Carter, the show was originally based on the life of its creator.The fictional "Beacon Street Pizza" was based on a real pizza restaurant named Theo's Pizza in Teele Square, Somerville, Massachusetts, where show creator Kenny Schwartz worked while attending nearby Tufts University.The show is set in Boston, but was filmed at CBS Studio Center in Studio City, Los Angeles, California.
The series stars Ryan Reynolds as Michael Leslie "Berg" Bergen, Richard Ruccolo as Peter "Pete" Dunville and Traylor Howard, as campus beauty Sharon Carter (later Carter-Donnelly).
In the first two seasons, Berg, an aimless graduate student, works at a Boston pizza parlor, Beacon Street Pizza, with Pete.
They both attend Tufts University, with Sharon, who after graduation, works as the spokesperson (or apologist) for Immaculate Chemicals.

The first season features Jennifer Westfeldt as Melissa, Pete's girlfriend, and David Ogden Stiers as Mr.
Bauer, a delusional old man who frequents the pizza place, pretending that experiences from films are his own.
