I could have done without Terrell Owens, but I can always do without T.O., and at least he wasn't on for long. All the promos I've seen have included Shawn Shawn Johnson being interviewed by Matt's character; I think that's probably from an upcoming episode. I'm guess she's trying to get into acting, but I don't think she's very good at it, at least not yet.

    I'll probably watch. or dvr, depending on what is airing opposite it.
    I got the feeling that was just a promo they did for the Olympics. I don't think she's going to be on the show, at least I hope she isn't. She's done a bit of TV but, like you, I don't think she's very good at it.

    It was cute - much better than I thought it would be, actually. I thought MP really shined when he was leading the class and that last scene following the car was hilarious (best part of the episode). We'll put it on the schedule...

    I think my favorite moments will be the ensemble moments with the support group. They were the best scenes in the episode last night.
    I think I read on tvline that they won't be airing it again which makes no sense! I'm hoping you're right and they either use it as the premiere or reair it before the next episode.

    I really enjoyed it.

    Wow, this is a big bump! Is anyone still watching?

    I watch several sitcoms, but this is one of the few that can make me laugh out loud. For some reason, even though the characters can be so over-the-top, it doesn't come off as hokey to me. Maybe it's because, underneath the kookiness, these characters feel like real people.

    I really enjoy this show. I agree with you Critical. Even though many of the characters are kinda crazy and out there, they still feel like real people to me. I'm interested to see where the rest of this season goes.

    I agree, Critical.

    This is one of my most favoutite new shows, possibly becoming one of my favourite comedies. Period. Of all that are on the air.

    In some ways I'm glad his previous comedy failed--this one is miles better! I love all the characters. They all fit perfectly in this little world and I know this because they don't bother me like they would if they were on any other show.

    I am. I love it, and it keeps growing on me even more each week. I think that the 30 minute shows just aren't talked about as much as the 60 minute drama's because they aren't episodic in the same way as the dramas.
