  • Now if they would just get rid of Rusty. That whole storyline is tired and it stalls the momentum of the show every time.

      • I also like the Rusty storyline. He is necessary to soften Sharon Raydor, since she came off kind of harsh to Brenda on the Closer. Plus it is interesting.

  • That sounds really fun. I love to see these older awesome actors getting more work, like on Hot in Cleveland. It is fun as a viewer who grew up with these old sitcoms to see all the actors on new shows.
