Did anyone watch "Just Legal"?

I tried. I think I made it through 15 minutes. This was bad. I saw nothing to redeem this show. Does anyone even like Don Johnson?

I was really shocked when I deleted my recording that this show was on The WB. Just did not seem like something they would air.

And then I got really depressed. Couldn't they have given Jack & Bobby this time slot?

I totally forgot this was on. No big loss. I doubt it will make it beyond 6 episodes.

I watched it a few weeks ago. I was a huge Undeclared fan, so I figured I'd give it a shot, but it was horrible.

I recorder it, but everything else that was on last night (Prison Break, CSI: Miami, How I Met Your Mother, Kitchen Confidential, King of Queens) had a higer priority for me personally, so I haven't watched it yet.

From The Futon Critic:

and the launch of "Just Legal" (households: 2.4/3, #18; adults 18-49: 1.1, #19)
and "Legal" was off a whopping 47.62% from "Everwood's" season premiere last season (households, #12; adults 18-49: 2.1 on 9/13/04).
I wish the WB would smarten up and give Everwood its Monday night time slot back.

It is going to get crushed on Thursday nights.

Me and my gf used watch everwood/7th heaven on Mondays. It sucks that they moved it, but hopefully the low ratings of Just Legal will prompt them to move it back to Monday. Thursday is too damn packed for shows especially at the 9pm est time slot.

I figured it wouldn't last 2 months, so didn't bother.

I tried to watch it, but like the OP, I turned it off after ten minutes or so. I realized I had a life to lead, and this was wasting it. It's just utterly a crying shame they moved Everwood from such a great spot on Monday night for this crap.

Not to mention the fact that 7th Heaven is still on. Monday nights on WB are dead to me. DEAD I SAY!

From the Undeclared kid's bio:

Best known for his starring role on the hit series Undeclared ...
I guess even a canceled series is considered a hit when compared to WB programs.

Don't hate on the WB. It has come out with some good stuff. Just gotta sift through the muck. This definitely did not fit with the rest of the WB Programming, though. Belonged on ABC or FOX. Either way this is right up there with Head Cases as the 1st canceled show this season.

I watched it, and won't watch it again. The only thing worth watching was the knife/pencil demonstration in court, culminating in, "Good thing you didn't use the knife." And maybe the girl on trial. She was purdy.

This was about the only positive IMO. An absolutely horrid pilot in every respect. It'll be a blessing when this gets put out of its misery.

Why isn't this show called Barely Legal? Isn't that what they're really going for with the title?

You're a tad too late. I made that joke in here 3 months ago.

But I'm not making a joke. It sounds like the producers of the show don't know what phrase they're really trying to play off of. No one says "just legal."
