    • So lame, that at our house we’ve nick-named it “Witless”!

  • Raising the Bar and now this. Poor Jane deserves better. Her husband from Malcolm keeps raking in the Emmys and she has the acting ability to be as well.

  • Why bother? I have this very strong feeling that this show will be cancelled after 1 or 2 episodes.

  • Why so much negativity? Based on the premise alone, I thought this show wouldn’t attract me, but the trailer actually made me laugh, which is more than I can say about NBC’s other comedy offerings this upcoming season. Up All Night, Bent and Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea all look dreadful to me.

    The lead actress seems likeable enough, and it now has two excellent reasons to tune in with Maulik Pancholy and Jane Kaczmarek in the supporting cast.

  • I think this show looks hillarious, I don’t get how people don’t think it’s funny but hey to each his own, I’m still looking foward to it. The show seems very offbeat and I like that.

  • I love Jane K., but the actress playing Whitney is incredibly off putting. I won’t even give it a chance. It seems the fall programming is very female centric [stewardesses, Whitney, Charlie's Angels etc.]. The only one so far that intrigues me is the one with Zooey Deschanel.

  • The commercials, alone, make me want to NOT watch this show – and those are supposed to be the best clips from show.
