I saw last night's episode. While I have to admit, I was hoping for more. I just love John Lithgow and Jeffrey Tambor. I can't believe they never worked before. I am hoping that NBC will allow this show to evolve because I think it has a lot of promise especially with first rate cast. I believe that Tambor and Lithgow's relationship on screen mirrors off-screen. I wish the writing was better but I hope that the show will improve if given a full season. I prefer John in 3rd Rock from the Sun but I'll take him whenever he comes on television. Jeffrey Tambor is also a brilliant actor. They could have made it the Golden Boys of this decade. With Lithgow and Tambor, you can't go wrong. I hope they plan on getting stars like Dame Eileen Atkins, Jessica Walter, Jason Bateman, Jane Curtin, and anybody else they worked with in the past. Lithgow and Tambor could be the new comedy team of this century so please let this show developed into something that can last for years.
