    Suburgatory

    New comedy on ABC. Is anybody watching?

    We love this show!! Probably because, sadly, this is where we live; the plastic stay at home moms, the mani/pedis with the big coffee drinks, the country club, chauffering the kids around in the SUVs - all of it - this is what we see every day...and we make fun of it ourselves. I can't wait to see where this show goes; we thought the premiere was hilarious!!!

    I really enjoyed it. I love Jeremy Sisto and his "daughter" on the show. I'm not a huge fan of Cheryl Hines, but I'm willing to overlook that.

    I'm trying to not get too depressed over Jeremy Sisto playing someone's father!

    I'm in the middle of watching right now, but I'm enjoying it so far.

    Cheryl Hines is perfect casting. I never watched her on Curb Your Enthusiasm because Larry David gives me hives, but I loved her in Waitress.

    My husband and I watched it tonight. I loved it and he said we could keep it on the DVR schedule...which translates to "I liked it, too".

    After having watched the whole episode, I'll definitely keep watching. I liked the lead actors, especially the girl. She's got a little Kristen Stewart vibe....and I mean that in a good way

    You mean if Kristen Stewart could act? I had the same thought. She resembles her, only cute and perky instead of dark and moody.

    Not in love with it yet - but anything with Jeremy Sisto is automatically watchable......droool

    I loved this...favorite new comedy for sure! And for exactly the same reasons you said. While I'm no stay at home country club mom, I certainly know several. I may be plastic free, but I will confess to an SUV, a love of Starbucks, and regular pedi's There were many frighteningly recognizable things to laugh at....but there was also an undertone of sweetness which was nice...like when when CH bought the daughter a pretty, feminine bra - her heart was in the right place, and it showed she does actually have one This is the second new show...along with Person Of Interest...that I am really looking forward to the next episode. I hope this one is able to keep up the laughs and sticks around for awhile!

    I only watched because it was after The Middle and before Modern Family, but it was actually pretty good. Also, it got a GREAT time slot.
