ABC blew it when they didn't pick up "Dear Diary"
7 September 2003 | by (Fountain Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

Imagine a line-up including "Sports Night," "Dear Diary" and "NYPD Blue!"

Bebe Neuwirth is great as the lead and narrator of this sitcom pilot by Dreamworks that ABC failed to recognize and place on their Fall schedule. Great script, Brian Kerwin in a supporting role as her husband, and filmed on the beautiful streets of New York City.
