References

  1. Even if Kim Kelly is not included in the opening credits, she is nevertheless regarded as a main character because she appers in all the 18 episodes and Busy Philipps is credited immediately after the opening credits by "also starring" instead of appearing as "guest" or "co-starring".
  2. 2.0 2.1 The cast members of the recurring and minor characters are indicated after the opening credits as "guests" or in the end credits as "co-starring". The credits do not make a difference between recurring and minor characters or between reccuring cast members and guest stars.
