The logo for Guys Like Us

Status: Partially Found

Guys Like Us was an American sitcom that aired on United Paramount Network (UPN) from October 1998 until January 1999. The show was Dan Schneider's first tv show and he would later go on to create shows such as Drake & Josh and Zoey 101. Guys Like Us revolved around two roommates Sean Barker (Chris Hardwick) and Jared Harris (Bumper Robinson) as they take care of Jared's six-year-old brother while trying to make ends meet. The plot of a younger sibling moving in with an older sibling can be seen in some of Dan Schneider's other works such as Zoey 101 and What I like about you. Guys Like Us ran for twelve episodes before being canceled due to low ratings with a thirteenth episode never airing. The only piece of media that survives is the show's intro.
