Trivia

This show's premise is very loosely based on the childhood experiences of writer, "It Gets Better" campaign co-creator, and one of The Real O'Neals executive producers, Dan Savage. Savage, like Kenny, grew up as a gay kid in a devoutly Catholic Irish-American family with his father working as a Chicago cop, and his parents divorcing. See more »

Too many haters out there
8 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

We are 2 old gay guys-together 27 years and married 2 years. We love the show. It is handling the subject matter in a funny and subtle way. Everything gets covered and no one is offended. Maybe we're too old to be offended or think EVERYTHING is just too boring, but there is a audience out here for QUALITY and WELL WRITTEN shows- like The Real O'Neal's. The subject matters covered are topical and written in an intelligent way and not talking down to it's audience. You expect us to understand what is going on also, which is refreshing. Thank you to the cast and crew for all your hard work. We are enjoying it. Jim and Jack
