David Weiss, young and idealistic, joins struggling TV network IBS. His coworkers include the shark-like Mick McClaren, the airheaded Lindsay Urich, and Joanne Waters, the network's token black executive. His immediate boss, programming exec Paul Weffler, combines McClaren's amorality with Urich's cluelessness, which means his job is always threatened by both of them (and by Waters). Finally, the network president, Red, is always right, even when he isn't. Written by

Groin-grabbingly bad. What a tragic waste of the talents of John Cleese and Ed Begley, Jr. Peter Tolan should have stuck with "The Job". I've seen a lot of bad TV in my day, but this program LITERALLY gave me a stomachache it was so godawful. I predict that ABC will very rapidly be pulling "Wednesday 9:30 (8:30 Central)" from the Wednesday 9:30 (8:30 Central) time slot. Try again, program development people, but next time, BE MORE FUNNY!
