Of course, prolific writers with such a high-batting average of hits have to be prepared for criticism. Gibson and Morris say they take no offense at those who would call their shows "low-brow," or dismiss their work as artistically lacking when compared to other theaters.

"Our critic is the theater-going audience," Morris says. "They come back week after week. So I don't necessarily need someone to tell me if my show is good or not. I know by ticket sales whether or not it's good."

"'Roseanne' was the No. 1 show on television for three years," he says. "And it was very low-brow. But it was low-brow all the way to the bank."
