TNT has gone out of there way to make people tune in for Are We There Yet?. The same way they plugged Frank TV during the 2008 MLB Playoffs on TBS, and the same way they will plug Conan O'Brien's new show during this year's playoffs.
But the show failed to live up to that hype. I knew it would not be a classic going in, but I thought it had a little bit of potential to be the next big family comedy and sort of piggy back on Modern Family's success. While it was just about as funny as the acclaimed ABC series, it did not really carve out its own identity. The jokes all fell flat, you really felt like you have seen everything 100 times like the bickering between the parents which was exactly like that on Crews' previous show, Everybody Hates Chris and the Rallo from The Cleveland Show, like younger kid.
This show could be good over time, but it is clearly not there yet.moreless
