It's not hard to see why garbage like this was canceled after only two aired episodes!
9 October 2001 | by (Providence, Rhode Island) – See all my reviews

The keys to a successful comedy usually involve a clever story line, funny comedians and a believable laugh track.

CBS's "DANNY" possesses none of these things.

Originally and appropriately titled "AMERICAN WRECK", the producers of this show did an about turn and quickly changed the title of this sitcom after realizing that they could be setting themselves up for media ridicule once this show hit the air.

Daniel Stern portrays a single father of two teenage brats. He also runs the local community center and is facing a mid-life crisis. Apparently, the producers of this show thought that 'turning 40' meant having your life turned upside down... God only knows how they would have portrayed life for those poor people out there who are going on 50!

The comedy itself is missing from this show. One ridiculous scene had a bunch of little girls dressed up as ballerinas in the community center squealing and crawling all over him, and the audience is supposed to be laughing at this? This was about the exact time that I changed the channel.

Airing a successful comedy in the Friday night time slot is not an impossibility. Guess where 'EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND' got its start.

CBS gets a thumbs down for bringing this show to our living rooms, but also gets a thumbs up for giving it a rightfully-deserved axing. At the end though, you do have to wonder... 'What exactly was the point of all of this?'
