Well, networks have to put something on. And when star directors like James Burrows (Cheers) and actresses fresh from perfect roles and sitcoms from the likes of Chuck Lorre's (Dharma and Greg) can't save the sinking ship, one knows there is a serious problem in Hollywood. Jenna did what she could in a soap romance comedy (they don't work at night) chick show (the guys are not in the room) and there was nothing wrong with the direction. But, there HAS to be something in the writing to direct. I think it is called...talent. Or funny would be nice too.
Yup, the writers killed the show. Or lack of writing. Fred Barron has a couple of great sitcoms in Dave's World and others...but what was he thinking here? Chuck Lorre went straight from Dharma and Greg to Two and a Half Men...arguably as funny or funnier than Dharma and Greg. Fred just did not get a right crew together here...the cast did not work well, the characters did not work well and were not credible, and the storyline was terrible. I knew it was doomed when my girlfriend liked it. The kiss of death. It was like scraps of other hit shows were thrown into a blender and Fred Barron came up with what you get when you mix scraps together in a blender...garbage.
