Superb Acting

For me when I saw the commercials previewing it before it's premiere I had to see this show, well I saw and I liked.

Rhea does superb top-notch acting as well as Carol, Malcolm, and the rest of the crew.

When this show got bumped I was mad, so mad that i wrote CBS and told them what a great show they just let slip through the cracks.

On one more note this has to be the second best t.v. series (right behind Cheers) that Rhea has starred in my words.
