    It's not such a bad timeslot. Oh wait....I TiVo'd it! lol

    This show is hilarious. I am so glad there is no laugh track. I find I have to rewind because they do/say something funny and they don't do the typical *pause for laughter* then continue. And I am laughing outloud so I miss what they say.

    Kitty's boobs were so funny. Great cast, great writing.

    Yeah, one nip was pointing north, and one pointing south.

    And I'm fine with the timeslot - I love Malcolm in the Middle.

    You know, I really like this show, but (I'll say it) I'd be surprised if it makes it past a second season. This formula doesn't work (except for Soap back in the 80s). People can't follow a half-hour serial dramedy--there isn't enough time to make a lot of action and each episode doesn't stand alone, as most comedies do. This show reminds me a lot of "Sports Night" a couple of years ago (although A.D. is more "wacky"), which was a fabulous show, but people just couldn't keep with it. Same story with "The Job."

    It's so frustrating because they are such great shows. If the producers would turn this show into a one-hour dramedy like "Allie McBeal," that would allow enough story for the audience to stay invested. "The Job" especially would have been great as a one-hour dramedy. Instead--these half-hour linear story comedies never find an audience but are absolutely fabulous shows--great writing, great cast, great direction. Such a frustrating waste!

    ott, I kind of disagree. Ron Howard's voiceovers give background info to almost every scene. I know that my wife and I *love* this show - it's a don't-miss. I think it's getting screwed in ratings because of its time slot and lead-in. It's in the second half of the hour, opposite a bunch of hour-long shows, including Alias and Sopranos.
