  • Dump it

    They did WAY too much advertising for this. They are obviously trying too hard. I have never seen such an annoying sitcom in my life, thats huge seeing as that there’s so much junk out there. It’s really really stupid in a VERY bad way.
    The worst thing is, and its the reason I am writing this, is that they try and make it look soooo good on the 10000000 commercials. I seriously think twice about watching something on tbs now. I get tired of reaching for the remote and hitting mute everytime there’s a commericial break when I’m watching something else. Those men at work commercials just dont quit.
    for the world’s sake GET THIS THING OFF THE AIR.

    Wow. Once again, the world of television defies the world the rest of us live in. Anyone in any other situation that approved this painfully bad rehash of the worst of trash cancelled in years past, would be fired in an instant, never to ‘work in this town again’…
    This is old and stale. It was old and stale the first time it was done. It failed then and there is NOTHING to make a thinking person think it wouldn’t fail this time too!
    Anyone who KEPT it on, would follow suit in VERY short order.
    The writers/producers/directors/actors …face it EVERYONE involved in EVERY aspect of this affront to species not dwelling in the primordial ooze, should be sterilized in the interest of preserving the species.
