I might check this out. I like Tambor and Raquel Welch was on Craig Ferguson's show the other day and she still looks smokin' hot.

How the mighty have fallen. Did Chris Klein's career tumble so quickly that he is now on an 8:30 sitcom on CBS?

I think there are only four of these in the can... anyone?

I'll be watching. I love Tambor and I've seen Al Madrigal do some stand up. He is freaking hilarious.

I'm in, I could really use a new comedy to watch. I really hope they have more than 4 eps in the can though, I couldn't find a number.

Don't knock the career of Chris Klein. He was in one of those movies where the guy humps a pie. Surely, he is one of the greatest film actors of his generation.

Being on TV isn't considered second tier like in the old days. There are a ton of "movie" actors who do television now and with the budget and quality of shows, they are probably glad they do. See Keifer Sutherland.

Yeah something was way way off. The pacing and timing was weird.

Yeah...This was not funny at all...Anyone else notice the hair of the actor's changing during the show? Probably re-shoots?

Can't tell. She'd have to lose the clothes.

As for the show, meh. It just didn't grab me, and I liked the actors that were in it. Oh well.

Ugh. Lousy situations and no comedy. Sort of an anti-sitcom.

I knew I forgot to watch something last night, but it doesn't sound like I should go out of my way to track it down.
