I like Mike O'Malley, so I was hoping it'd be funny. But it just didn't do anything for me. I'll amend my earlier statement and say it wasn't bad, but like bigdaddy said, it was just there.
Same here, he's the only reason I bothered watching the show.

We Are Men is also probably not long for this world. Without Tony Shaloub it'd be cancelled already. Just a bunch of lame sitcom masculine stereotypes only without the irony Tim Allen gave to them.

The Michael J fox Show is terrible, I like the energy in The Crazy Ones

Spot on. Those are pretty much my impressions of both shows. I love the chemistry between Robin Williams and SMG, and I feel they work well together. But I don't feel any chemistry with any of the cast on the Micheal J. Fox show and it just ends up feeling like a bunch of random people in a house. It's just so blah.

I'm half way through the second episode of We are Men.

Meh.

Carpoolers is where Jerry was best.

Don't you mean My Secret Identity?

Nah, I know you really mean Sliders. I think that's when he hit his prime. Afterwards though, I haven't really been able to stand him.

I was thinking Sliders too. After he made the producers get his brother to join the cast he always came off as a prick.

However the Funny or Die skit last year he did for a fake Sliders Kickstarter movie was awesome.

I think he did, but is just making fun of everything that happened and thefact the fans HATED her.

Or maybe she was a cunt to him too. Who knows.

Worked out for Wade, she landed on a planet and because a sports producer.

I watched Super Fun Night, and I have to say I doubt it is long for this world. It wasn't the worst thing I've ever seen, but it most certainly was not good.
It's Ally McBeal in a fun mirror.

They're already doing that over in Drop Dead Diva.
Ha! This is so true.


I don't want Hostages to go! It's the only new show I've actually liked.

Jerry O'Connell was great in Crossing Jordan. The voiceover in We Are Men is absolutely terrible. It's the most unnatural speech ever.

With Lucky 7 gone, I don't think Hostages is far behind. CBS could do twice as good with an NCIS repeat in that slot. Wouldn't be surprised to see Hawaii Five-0 or the Mentalist back there.

Episode 3 of Hostages was much better, but that doesn't get them back the rats that have already fled.

I kind of like "We Are Men." Tony Shalhoub" is pretty good on the show, heck they all are pretty funny. Well, maybe not the guy doing the narration, but the other three make up for it.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

I hate the way men are in sitcoms.

They're always these dumb helpless infants. I suppose it's not worse than the 50s where the women were the helpless ones, but it's the exact same distance from where it should be, only in the opposite direction.

It's like just because Tim Allen did it ironically, every other sitcom thinks it's a good idea to do it completely seriously.

Without broken people, you don't have comedy or drama.

How is "Thriller" a genre?

Well we have gotten a little better. For years, mainly CBS but others too, had the "dumb fat husband, really hot wife who yells at him" sitcoms like King of Queens and According to Jim.
