TV show description:
On this comedy series, Rob (Rob Schneider) is a successful landscape architect who has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Formerly a life-long bachelor, Rob has a whirlwind romance and marries Maggie (Claudia Bassols), a young, beautiful, and smart book translator. She's way out of his league and he knows it.
After eloping to Las Vegas, Maggie and Rob must break the news to her overprotective and judgmental parents -- sarcastic Rosa (Diana Maria Riva) and cynical Fernando (Cheech Marin). Shocked by the news that they've eloped, the family remains skeptical of Maggie's choice for a husband. The exception is her »
Rob Schneider is nothing if not confident. At the Television Critics Association Winter press tour, the former "SNL" star and lead in "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" compared his new series "Rob!" to such TV classics as "All in the Family," "Fawlty Towers" and "I Love Lucy." But how does it really stack up?
The series, which is loosely based on Schneider's own life, follows Rob (Rob Schneider) and Maggie (Claudia Bassols), who elope after knowing each other for a very brief period. The wrinkle comes in because Maggie is from a large Mexican family who a) don't know Rob and b) when they meet him, don't like him. And the more Rob attempts to get in their good graces, the worse it gets.
In the pilot, Maggie needs to tell her family that she ran off to Vegas and got hitched. This family features Cheech Marin as her father Fernando, »
Chicago – After an absolute train wreck like ABC’s “Work It” and something that comes close to disaster in NBC’s “Are You There, Chelsea,” there’s something nearly-satisfying about a mediocre sitcom like “Rob!” The latest effort to find a hit in the coveted post-“Big Bang Theory” slot is certainly better than the last two (“S**t My Dad Says,” “How to Be a Gentleman”) but that is the definition of faint praise. This is still mediocre comedy, the kind of show that you might enjoy if you stumble upon it but that you don’t need to set a Season Pass for any time soon.
Television Rating: 3.0/5.0
Rob Schneider has always looked uncomfortable on film in comedies like “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo” and “Grown Ups,” but he was often very funny in his time on “Saturday Night Live” and even delivered on the short-lived “Men Behaving Badly. »
