    Count me in. Sounds like a good cast.

  2. Jay says:

    The key words here are “single camera.” Thank goodness it’s not going to be another multi-cam, laugh-track riddled piece of garbage like the rest of the lousy sitcoms CBS currently runs.

    • Sam says:

      Apart from certain episodes of HIMYM, I totally agree. That show gets away with it because you can pretend the laugh track doesn’t exist most of the time.

      • eddie says:

        yeah but cbs doesnt do so well with single camera sitcoms so im not sure that its a good thing that its single cam.

      • TV Gord says:

        I think HIMYM should be shot like a single-camera show. I don’t know why they shoot it as though it’s on a stage with an audience, but there is no audience. The laugh track is distracting in its fakeness.

    • Damian says:

      The irony being here folks is that this person uses the same garbage riddled comment every one makes about how the number of cameras and whether or not a live audience is present makes a show better or worse yet never backs it up.

    • Bob says:

      Don’t worry. CBS will figure out a way to ruin it just like NBComcast ruined ‘Up All Night’.

    Hamish used to crack me up on Old Christine, so this is great news. This is set to be a heck of a show.
