"It's Like, You Know..." was a short-lived American situation comedy television series broadcast by ABC, starring Jennifer Grey, Evan Handler, Steven Eckholdt, A.J. Langer and Chris Eigeman, about life in Los Angeles viewed through the eyes of a diehard New Yorker, Arthur Garment (Chris Eigeman).

The show sought to lampoon an upper class Los Angeles lifestyle, in part by presenting the Manhattan writer, Garment, as a fish out of water among Hollywood notables and the idle rich. In the pilot his character arrives with unconcealed hostility, intent on treating his readers to a bitter satire on the absurdities and excesses of LA culture. While staying with an old friend from college, Garment finds himself increasingly torn between button-down stern contempt for West Coast attitudes and a growing enchantment with the relaxed whimsy constantly swirling around him.

The characters tended to be bright and articulate, though their distinctive wits further reflected the culture clash. The writers never seemed reluctant to make obscure references or run with sophisticated premises. The show was also notable for featuring the actress Jennifer Grey playing herself, the source of a running joke related to her real life rhinoplasty. The series was short lived, at least in part due to the sudden explosion of reality programming and ABC's decision to dedicate much of its primetime schedule to the then-popular "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire".

When ABC canceled the series in December 1999, seven episodes remained unaired. These episodes have since aired abroad, including in Argentina on Fox Latin America and in Australia on The Comedy Channel.

Although two 13 episode seasons were produced, only 7 episodes were aired during the first season. The other 6 were intended to air later in season two, but only 1 of that set was aired before the show was canceled.
