    Why? Because its being forced into a formula. How much canned laughter do you need? It looks like a poor attempt of a remake. Is it H.I.M.Y.M. ? Mad About You? What?

    Lucky for you, it appears the show won't be getting a second season. Just checking the ratings for it, and it's down to about 6.5 million now, and basically has gone done every week since it debuted at 8.7 million. I don't see it getting picked up at least.


    Anyways, it's not a big hit if it does. I like this show, but I like it because of it's cast. With the exception of Jason Biggs (don't watch movies) I was already fond of everyone else's work. It's problem definitely relies in it's unoriginality, but it can still make me laugh once a scene, so as long as the cast remains the same and the humor doesn't take a big hit, I'll watch it.

    Horrible? Not so, that is a mighty strong word. I have seen better and it is still a Friends wannabe but still it is watchable.

    The show is about how Connie and Larry get together. Where does the show go once they hook up?

    the 7th episode seemed to be an improvement where it focused more on Connier (Judy Greer). I love the cast and really want to like the show but I can't.

    If it starts to focus more on Labine and Greer and maybe their relationship or just random storylines of them together it would definately improve

    I agree that the show is completely unoriginal but its not 'horrible'.. its watchable at least. Tyler Labine is very funny but this show isn't as good as 'Sons of Tucson' or 'Reaper' and will likely share their fate of cancellation. I hope he finds a niche somewhere on TV or in the movies because I think he is a talent.



    I love Sarah Chalke in Scrubs but dont care for her on this show or in HIMYM, both characters seem vanilla and lack the quirkiness of Elliot Reed. Jason Biggs is just bland and really adds nothing to this show.

    I was still undecided about this show but the last episode (4/11) showed great improvement and if it keeps improving it might have a future.

    i do agree that there's nothing particularly special about it but for reasons unknown i still like it. obviously Larry is the character to like...Jason Brigg's is kinda lame and Sarak Chalke is pretty annoying at times. but i don't think it's trying to be anything (HIMYM or anything else). not sure how long it can last with 1.5 interesting characters...:s we'll monitor i guess.

    Well, HIMYM is a show about how he met their mother...

    Before I said that the show was showing some improvement, well, the last episode 'Friends' proved me wrong, it was truly horrible.
