Not such 'Great News'
26 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Apparently there must have been an issue with TV transmissions last night, because the show 'Great News' ~ the one critics are raving about as 'fantastic and uproariously funny', was NOT the same one showing on my TV set.

This 'comedy' stars Briga Heelan as Katie Wendelson and Andrea Martin as her helicopter mom, Carol, set primarily in a broadcast newsroom. The premise is gimmicky: Katie tries to get some hard hitting news assignments, while mom Carol has been hired on as an intern at the station. The attempted jokes were simply not funny, and frankly just an insult to the viewer who has wasted their time watching this drivel when there are SO many quality shows available these days.

Perhaps the most surprising thing is that Tina Fey is this show's Executive Producer. But if she REALLY believes that 'Great News' is a funny sit-com, then I must quote an actual comedy..."I'll have what she's having". Just awful.
