Byrne's Sitcom Is Slammed By Critics
Movie idol Gabriel Byrne's new sitcom, "Madigan Men" (2000) has been given the thumbs-down by critics. A pilot of the new show - allegedly a male version of "Sex and the City" (1998) and penned by the same author - has been panned by reviewers. The New York Times reviewer says, "The only door likely to be opened by this show is the one marked 'Exit'. It focuses more on father-son angst and Irish proverbs than giving women tips on the male psyche." Media Week describes the show, which is being given a prime time Friday night slot, as "the second worst schedule move" of the autumn. Byrne plays divorcee Ben Madigan, who lives with his teenage son and grey-haired father.
