    The show will have a special premiere on Tuesday, March 18th, after DWTS and will then move to its regular timeslot, Thursdays @ 8... Two new episodes will air for three weeks and that will be it, because only seven were completed before the strike...

    I hate to say this, but this show is going to fail. ABC is premiering it at 10:30?? You do not premire a SITCOM at 10:30 (admittidly it is after DWTS so that'll help). Then they are airing it in double bills, this will also not help ratings.

    Can't say as I have ever seen three NEW episodes air in less than 48 hours, in primetime, of a NEW sitcom the way this is doing. I kind of have a crush on Judy Greer since her two-parter on 2.5 Men (she left Charlie wanting more, was very smart and looked very cute in her 'sexiest pajamas' )... so I am rooting for this at the moment. Get back to me on Friday.

    Hope it does well in the ratings...

    That really was funny. I can definitely see the Ashton Kutcher humor behind this one. Although it might have 'premiered' at 10:30 eastern time on Tuesday night (18th), that is not when the show is really premiering in its regular timeslot. Thursday early (8 o'clock hour) its in regular timeslot should do well again NBC's Thursday night comedy night (Earl, The Office, Scrubs, etc)

    Actually, I think this is a bad time slot - up against established sitcoms.

    If it went up vs. reality and/or dramas, it would catch all those people who are looking for sitcoms. Now it has to share time with sitcommers. Tuesday or Wenesday would be better. Like the spots held by Caveman or Carpoolers, for instance.

    I've watched a couple of episodes and it looks promising. Have to watch a couple more to get a better assessment.

    I never figured Judy Greer had the charisma to carry a show on her own, but I was proved wrong. I think her character's just adorable.
