From the Paper:

"Roseanne and Dan are two working class Americans who struggle with raising a family and holding their marriage together simultaneously. Roseanne works in the service industry and Dan is a building contractor. While they are the parents of three teenagers and a baby, they do not have all the answers.

Ray and Debra are the parents in a middle-class, suburban family. He's a sportswriter and she's a full-time mother. The couple has twin toddlers and a 6-year-old. The show places less emphasis on the kids and more emphasis on how Ray and Debra deal with their lives, which is important because a crucial aspect of parenting is maintaining one's own life. "
