How Sullivan and Son got out of the box and actually on the air is beyond me. With Shows like Modern Family, Raising Hope, The Big Bang Theory and The Middle (to name just a few)riding the wave these past few seasons, this low budget throw back is full of stereotypes, bad writing and no chemistry between the actors. Even the talents of Christine Ebersole (who I love) can't save the lame scripts. This show is just a bad rehash of Margaret Cho's "All American Girl" of 1994. It didn't last and Sullivan and Son won't either. The whole show feels like it was thrown together on the back of a wet napkin at a Hooter's. Every joke falls flat, the character of the mother is just a horrible Asian stereotype that is painful to watch. Ebersole seems to know she is already doomed and hopefully she is looking at other offers. The show breaks no new ground, and the assortment of one dimensional supporting characters reminds me of every failed sitcom I can't remember.
