Dick Night Director Returns To Short Form For Web Series Kirstin Lives in Los Angeles
If you dug the rebound sex/vampire mash-up in his feature debut, “Dick Night,” how about a little free and timely hilarity from writer-director Andy Viner in the form of a web series? “Kirstin Lives in Los Angeles” stars Kirstin Eggers as a woman trying to live the dream in Los Angeles, but winds up suffering through a comedy of errors courtesy of a Kickstarter con artist, some Twitter prostitution, and more. The series consists of five episodes, each four to five minutes long, and are well worthy of a binge watch if you’d like a boost at poor Kirstin’s expense. Check out Chapter 1 one below and if you’d like [ Read More ]

The first episode of Work It, attracted a 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.16 million total viewers.  When compared to the debut of already-canned Man Up!, ABC was down by 17% in the ratings.

Work It: New ABC Sitcom; Cancel or Keep It?

Last week, ABC unveiled their first new sitcom of 2012, Work It. The TV series was pummeled by negative reviews from critics and viewers alike but were the ratings that bad? Will it be quickly cancelled or stick around long enough to be renewed for a second season?

Work It revolves around a pair of unemployed guys -- Lee Standish (Ben Koldyke) and Angel Ortiz (Amaury Nolasco) -- who believe that the economic downturn has affected men more than women. Lee gets a job at a pharmaceuticals company after applying dressed as a woman and Angel follows. The two must maintain their charade to keep their jobs and end up learning a little something about what it means to be female.

The cast also includes Beth Lacke, John Caparulo, Rebecca Mader, Rochelle Aytes, Kate Reinders, Kirstin Eggers, and Hannah Sullivan.

Must-See TV? Not So Much
Associated Press Kate Reinders, Kirstin Eggers, Rebecca Mader and Ben Koldyke (l-r) in a scene from “Work It,” on ABC.

Like questionable laugh tracks and ads plastered on buses, it’s a seasonal ritual of primetime television, but one that no network wants to be a part of: the angry mob attack on a debut show. Each time networks roll out a crop of new offerings, at least one of them inevitably draws the biting, unanimous, and often gleeful ire of judgmental critics,

Work It: Premiere Ratings

Even before it premiered, Work It was getting plenty of negative reviews. Some believe there's no such thing as bad publicity though and that attention may have drawn a few more people to watch Work It than normally might have.

Work It revolves around a pair of unemployed guys (Ben Koldyke and Amaury Nolasco) who believe the only way they can find jobs as pharmaceutical reps is to pretend to be women. Unfortunately, once they start work, they realize the ruse isn't as easy as it seemed. The sitcom also features Beth Lacke, John Caparulo, Rebecca Mader, Rochelle Aytes, Kate Reinders, Kirstin Eggers, and Hannah Sullivan.

Last night's premiere, per the fast affiliate ratings, registered a 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.1 million total viewers. On the positive side, Work It retained 80% of its Last Man Standing lead-in and improved over the

TV Review: ABC’s Lame ‘Work It’ is Insulting to Both Genders

Chicago – I try to approach every new series as a blank slate. However, it would be naive to say that things like pedigree and incessant advertising don’t have the same impact on me as they do you. I’m a fan of J.J. Abrams and so I look forward to his work more than, say, the team behind “According to Jim.” And the ads for ABC’s “Work It” sent a shiver down my spine like a high school teacher talking about a term paper that you knew you’d have to do eventually and would probably hate writing. Did it live up to my low expectations? Actually, no. It’s much, Much worse.

Television Rating: 1.0/5.0

Perhaps ABC slated “Work It” as the first new program of 2012 so no one would remember it by the time they were writing their Worst of the Year lists in eleven months. Because

ABC Announces 2011-2012 Schedule – Preview It Here

ABC has a slew of new shows coming, many of which need a lot of luck if they're going to last more than a handful of episodes. The schedule has been released, so let's take a lot at what's coming.

Oddly enough, as part of the new announcement, ABC has solidified the return of several more shows, including Happy Endings, despite the fact that two other networks have shows on their slate with cast members from the show. That should be interesting. Of course, it works for me, because I'm a fan.

In other news, Desperate Housewives will not die. Are you kidding me with this show still being on?

New Series - “Apartment 23,” “Charlie’s Angels,” “Good Christian Belles,” “Last Man Standing,” “Man Up,” “Missing,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Pan Am,” “Revenge,” “The River,” “Scandal,” “Suburgatory” and “Work It” Join the Lineup

Watch clips from ABC's new comedies: Apartment 23, Last Man Standing and more

Earlier we shared ABC's primetime lineup, and now we have some clips from the new comedy series for you. The new comedies include Apartment 23, Suburgatory, Last Man Standing, Man Up, and Work It. So far I think Apartment 23 looks the best. Check out the clips below and let us know what shows you are liking the most.

After a naive Midwestern girl's big city dreams are dashed her first week in New York, she finds herself living with her worst nightmare in this hilarious, contemporary comedy about a female odd couple who are surrounded by an outrageous cast of characters.

'Work It' video preview: Cross-dressing to beat the 'mancession'

What are two guys to do during the current "mancession"? Dress up as women to score jobs, of course!

ABC announced its 2011-2012 schedule on Tuesday, May 17, and the workplace comedy (with a twist!) "Work It" made the cut for midseason. 

"Work It" stars Ben Koldyke as Lee Standish and Amaury Nolasco as Angel Ortiz, two alpha males who land jobs in pharmaceutical sales by passing themselves off as women. While this concept may seem a little offensive, Lee and Angel quickly learn there are fundamental differences in the worlds of men and women and ABC calls the show a "smart, funny and relevant look at male and female relationships at work, at home and socially." The tagline? "Being a better man sometimes means having to be a better woman." Seriously. We'll try to reserve judgment until we see the finished product.

Also starring in the workplace, buddy and family

ABC Announces Full Fall 2011-12 Primetime Schedule

NBC and Fox have both unleashed their Fall 2011-2012 TV schedule, now ABC has released theirs. I’m excited to see Castle, Modern Family, and The Middle back in the mix. Most of the new shows they have line-up don’t really interest me, but there are a few that have caught my eye. PanAm is another 1960’s based TV show that will go against AMC’s Mad Men and NBC’s The Playboy Club. There’s a show called Revenge that sounds really interesting, but the new series I’m most excited about is is the fantasy series Once Upon A Time, a show where fairy tales collide with the modern day.

Here is ABC’s full schedule along with a description of all of their shows. Go through them below and let us know what TV series you’re most excited about seeing.

Fall 2011-12 drama and comedy pilots: What's the next hit (and what's headed to the trash bin)

Fall 2011-12 drama and comedy pilots: What's the next hit (and what's headed to the trash bin)
After spending untold amounts of cash on hundreds of dramas and comedies — most of which will never make it to your living rooms — the five broadcast networks will begin announcing in New York next week which projects are good enough to earn a coveted fall pickup. (NBC and Fox will present their fall schedule to advertisers on Monday, followed by ABC on Tuesday, CBS on Wednesday and the CW on Thursday).

Buzz is already strong for several projects (for more on the hot ones, click here). But every year, we always wonder what diamond-in-the-rough was left on the cutting room
