Storyline

Emily Sanders is a successful young woman with fabulous job in publishing and great friends. She got to where she is by working hard and always followed a set of self-imposed guidelines referred to as the "Reasons", as in reasons why not to do something that could have consequences in her life. However, when Emily gets involved with a roguishly handsome, two-timing author, she realized that somewhere she took a wrong turn in her life. She now has to get back on track, and once again be heedful of the trustworthy reasons that help her navigate her way through life. Written by DesertShark25

What would David Spade say...? :)
10 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Too bad SNL still doesn't have David Spade's "Hollywood Minute"--this show is quite deserving of a rib or three...

(1) "So, 'Emily's Reasons Why Not' Premiered on Monday. Hey, guys, y'know why they made 'Sex in the City'? So that you don't have to. It's called originality; look into it."

(2) "Let's see: A neurotic professional woman with dating-problems, hung up on her last boyfriend, and constantly sparring with the Asian dragon-lady. I saw that show 10 years ago: it was called 'Ally McBeal'."

(3) "You'll love this show if you loved "Ally McBeal"-- after it jumped the shark, I mean."
