  • Good Christian B!+¢#@$ is shaping up to be a must see for me. I hope it gets a pickup. If it doesn’t, I hope Ryan Murphy finally gets that Sitcom/Music show going for my girl Kristin.

  • This shows sounds more and more like it would be a hoot to watch even though I have a hard time believing that Eliot and Chenoweth as a married couple given the difference in height. Did they first meet after he literally tripped over her? :-) All joking aside, can’t they change the name of the show? A lot of people are never going to even view this program because they’ll find the name offensive. The same kind of issue almost whacked Cougar Town when it premiered.

    • I gotta admit my first thought was “Man, that’s some major height difference!”. Wonder if she’s stocking up on 4″ heels.

    • The Cougar Town title has not harmed the show at all. The problem with the title is that it describes the pitched premise – not the premise that developed naturally as the characters interacted.

    • Well, the show name comes from the book that it’s based on:

  • I have watched David from the very first Jag. It was a must just like Dallas, Magum PI, etc.. I loved the take off of NCIS in seasons 7 & 8. David is such a “FOX”. He is good in whatever he does. Also enjoyed him on the TALK on CBS. Looking forward to seeing more of him….

  • I enjoy any videos, movies or interview that David James Ek\lliot performs. He is an excellent actor. I qwn a lot of his movies anf the 10 year Jay series. He needs to be on tv more than ever since Jag left the air. Please bring him back with Nanci too. She is a god actress.
