The classic sitcom that zeros in on a group of New York City cab drivers. Lording over Alex, Bobby, Elaine, Tony, John, and Latka is the one and only Louie De Palma. The snide and surly taxi dispatcher, from the safety of his dispatcher's cage, barks orders, hurls insults, and mercilessly berates the diverse and eccentric characters who drive for him. Along the way, they form a special bond, becoming friends and helping each other navigate the sometimes crazy road called life.

The John Burns character played by Randall Carver is so horrible in this.

Really glad they dropped him after Season 1.
