Show Summary

Sara Rue stars as Claudia Casey, an enthusiastic assistant who loves her job working for GNB Network news anchor Will Butler, played by Eric Roberts. After two years, Claudia has become more adept at fending off her condescending co-workers, Kipp (Zachary Levi) and Lydia (Andrea Parker), who have been determined to get rid of her to further their own ambitions. Now, while continuing to spar with these snobs, she's being pestered in new ways: Lydia is obsessed with her upcoming wedding to on-air pundit Jeb (Patrick Warburton, new series regular), sharing all the details with everyone at the office -- especially Claudia -- and Kipp needs Claudia's counsel as he struggles with his new job as Jeb's assistant. Fortunately Claudia still has the support of three friends at GNB: the brash and blunt Ramona (Sherri Shepherd), the loyal but idiosyncratic Owen (Andy Dick), and her blowhard next-door neighbor, Carl (Will Sasso), who's also the cafeteria manager.

  • Less Than Perfect, is almost perfect! Thus the 9.5 rating. *teehee*

    9.5
    I don't often watch sit coms, but this one was a real treat. The characters were a lot of fun and the cast was so talented. It's was one of those funny little shows that never found an audience. Or at least it wasn't big enough for ABC.



    The snobs (Kipp and Lydia) try to under mind the sweet new girl (Claudia). They try to put her in her place. But Claude rises to their challenge and prevails. Claude also has very good friends that help her keep the snobs at bay. This formula is very much like what is used on Ugly Betty.



    The stand out performance is Zachary Levi as Kipp Steadman. The guy has talent to burn. And he is so cute. I was stunned when I found out that the guy that played the snarky Kipp Steadman is the same guy that plays the sweet geek on NBC's Chuck. The smiles and body language are so different.



    Bring it back! Or at least offer it as a download.moreless
  • worste show ever

    1.1
    What i dont get is how people could even consider this as a good show. The actors are bad and there jokes are even worse. Its bad seeing funny actors like Sherri Shepherd and Patrick Warburton being wasted by this unfunny show, i almost feel bad for them on how they embarress themselves by having to read out the worste and most embarressing lines iv seen on a show. If you havent ever seen this show before then DONT because it will just annoy you mostly on how the audience laughs hysterically when there not even meaning to be funny or just telling a really bad joke, personally i dont know whats the difference. I only watched this once and that was because its on after some decent shows. My rating for this show is so low beacuse after 30 minutes of watching an episode i did not laugh once. iv seen more laughs out of an horror film than this show, dont know why they would even consider this a comedy.moreless
  • Was cancelled too early.

    7.8
    Less Than Perfect, wasn't definately more than perfect, but it had tons of potential. It had a great cast, mildly good writing, and was on an okay network. However ABC decided to cancel it way too early, and they really should've done more promotion with the show. I only remember seeing Sara Rue on Ellen once to promote Less Than Perfect, and whenever Sherri Shepard was on The View they never asked her about it. Andy Dick was no help either, as well as Eric Roberts. I really think had the show caught on like Desperate Housewives, or Grey's Anatomy it might still be on. It probably wouldn't be on par with those hot shows, but it might still have possibilities of getting rating for ABC. Honestly, instead of bringing Cavemen on air, or keeping Hope and Faith for too long, they should've left Less Than Perfect on air, because it was actually an entertaining show.moreless
  • Died with the time change

    8.8
    "Less Than Perfect" was a really cute show that was doing fairly well until the fourth season when they pulled it off the air. When ABC brought it back, no former fans could find it. Is it any wonder that Eric Roberts had jumped ship?



    For its first three seasons, the show was about the two sparring factions in the office: Claude the good and her friends versus the evil Lydia and Kipp who were always trying to put her down because she wasn't as good as them. It was a cute commentary on social mobility without being at all heavy-handed.



    The show wasn't the same when it came back, and the loss of Eric Roberts really made a big difference for the worse. However, it should be remembered for its first 3 seasons, not its last one.moreless
