I'll tune in to check it out. Anything with Andy Richter is worth at least a look.

Agreed. It was "eh" at best. Made me miss Andy Richter Controls the Universe all the more.

Wasn't bad. You gotta realize that it is targeted to quite a different audience than ARCtU.

I still think Fox should bring back The Pitts.

I watched all of 5 minutes and hated every second of it. I can't see this show lasting very long at all--Andy deserves better than this dreck.

Yes, Andy does deserve better (ARCTU comes to mind) I miss Byron, Keith, Wendy, and ... the other babe. I hope ARCTU comes out on dvd someday soon.

FYI, "the other babe" was Jessica, played by Paget Brewster. Delicious. She's actually quite hilarious in real life, as seen in her sex column for Femme Fatales magazine.

Poor Andy. Despite this being such a crappy show, he was still pretty funny.

Wow, that was bad, very bad. I chuckled a few times when Richter cracked a couple of jokes, but the rest was painful.

The Fox summer lineup is just looking worse and worse. Between this, The Casino and North Shore, I can see them doing a lot of repeats of older shows soon.

Very clever to parody the family sitcom like that; however, by having the "while the parent's are out, the kids will throw a party" episode so early in the show's run I fail to see where it will go. If the show is not a parady, then shame on Fox and a bigger shame on Andy Richter.

Andy Richter's acting ability was void in this show. None of the qunits had much either except for the little kid from Punk'd. And I am sure if they keep up his routine it will get old very fast.

Other than the Punk'd kid's lines, I liked the comment about their whiteboard being life.

Bye bye Andy Richter.

The quints are the worst actors I've ever seen on a network show. I love Andy but this show was painful.

I didn't think it was nearly as bad as some reviews suggested. Maybe a B- on my scale, but still just so so.

AR Controls the Universe was a great comedy I thought, it's too bad that show and Arrested Development couldn't have been pair of after the Simpsons or something.

I like Andy....and I like Rebecca Kreskoff (she was great on Greetings from Tucson) so I'll keep watching.

But it does have that feeling of generic short lived sitcom about it

I'll give it a second chance, but this show was painful to watch at times. The acting was really subpar, and I didn't even think Andy was too great himself. However, it's the summer, so I can be more lenient.
