Worst show ever spun from a good show
27 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

This show is bad. They shouldn't have even made it a spin off from Mary Tyler Moore, because the character of Phyllis is totally different here. I used to cringe when they used to air it on Nick At Nite. Don't even bother watching it, this spinoff personnifies the dreaded 4 un's: UNfamiliar, UNentertaining, UNfunny and UNwatchable.
