Sadly unfunny
23 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Reagan Brinkley (Christina Applegate) and Chris Brinkley (Will Arnett) are a couple of hard partying professionals who were surprised into parenthood and suburbia. Ava Alexander (Maya Rudolph) is a host of her own show and Reagan's boss/friend/dependent.

This is a show led by SNL veterans like Emily Spivey. And surprisingly it's just not that funny. The leads Christina Applegate and Will Arnett have some good chemistry together. They have some good exchanges. Maya Rudolph is a one note character, and never gets much depth. They try various characters to add as support like the loser brother played by Luka Jones. Most of these efforts end in failure.
