When I saw the previews for this I was hesitant. All in all it didn't seem overly appealing, but a night with nothing else on and I gave in.

Every week I feel like I'm sitting down to a mini-romantic comedy from the comfort of my own home. The characters are great, the story lines are those perfectly constructed, cliché, feel good, plots that make the romantic comedies of today so endearing. Not to mention the great chemistry that Claire and "Trevor" share.
It's unfortunate that it's not getting the ratings that ABC likes from their shows. They've given up a lot of good ones all because they didn't hit home from the start. Here's hoping Cupid picks up and we can at least see a second season from it.
