    Thing is, I don't think I ever saw it advertised as anything more than a miniseries until after the ratings it got. I kind of feel that they jeopardized it with extending it, that they'll have to put it out of its misery instead of ending it with dignity like they could have. It's why I feel ratings don't give a complete picture.

    It's Ally McBeal in a fun mirror.

    They're already doing that over in Drop Dead Diva.

    The pilot was so bad that ABC didn't air the pilot, they started with the second episode.

    I HATED the 10 minutes I saw. However the comedies this year are not funny. Micheal J Fox Show and The Crazy Ones are fun and sweet, but not funny. The Millers and Super Fun Night were horrible. Oddly Back in the Game was really fun.

    So we missed the episode where the female leads make the big mystery pot of superfunnight ideas?

    I hate it when they screw with the viewing order.

    The Michael J fox Show is terrible, I like the energy in The Crazy Ones and Will Arnett is the failing presence in The Millers, his character should die so we can focus on the... Does Margo Martindale pitching a flag here mean trouble for The Americans?

    The next ones canceled have to be Hostages or Betrayal. If not one of the countless comedies no one will even know is missing.

    I could not make it the whole way through Betrayal.

    It was just so small, and took forever to get there.

    I tried to watch that show "Welcome to the Family" last Thursday on NBC, it was so bad I turned it off inside of ten minutes and went to bed. I can't see it lasting too long.

    They succeed in making something inoffensive and family friendly.

    Funny would have been better.

    I didn't think it was bad, but I didn't think it was good. I think it was just there. :lol:

    And the latino sons on the show, both seem really gay to me. It was distracting because the guy was supposed to be the father and I'm like "He seems like the fag hag to me".

    Maybe that's the twist! He is actually gay and just did it once to see if he liked women! ;)

    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.

    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.

    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.
