#1 sitcom of all time
20 February 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

no, REALLY -- you should have seen it!

Bonnie Hunt's earliest (and most short-lived) attempt to share her innate sitcom charm was, artistically, her best effort. It captured a "Waltons" sensibility with a "Honeymooners" visual tone in a "Mary Tyler Moore" premise that might have Nielsened HUGE if CBS' marketing dept had realized that, by 1990, a majority of the Red States had reliable cable access.

"The Building" was the first venture project launched by David Letterman's World-Wide Pants Production company. Mr Letterman's confidence in the lead, Bonnie Hunt, was obviously inspired by the actress's unassuming wit and ease with improvisation during her guest appearances on his show.

Ms Hunt's latest offering ("Life with Bonnie") hearkened a return to the breezy, second-guessing, self-effacing charisma which seems to result simply from her own genuine self.

btw, i'd love to procure DVD's or tapes of "The Building." (But PLEASE do NOT sneak into Mr Letterman's home on my behalf while he's vacationing!)
