    • Love this show, would highly recommend!

      9.5
      Ok this show is pretty funny. I was skeptical but I really love the dynamic between the main characters. I just started watching from the beginning this week and have now watched every episode and am rewarding them. There was a desperate need for a new comedy to air and I believe I have found it. I'd be really disappointed if the network didn't give this show the run it deserves.moreless
    • I hear of great acclaim

      And I could see some of it. It has its moments. Only seen 1 1/2 ep :P Maybe it will grow on me more

    • Not deep, yet deeply funny

      8.5
      The chemistry between the two leads is palatable, and while the storyline isn't especially new or exciting, there is a real likeability factor here.

      If you're in the mood for something that doesn't require anything of you except a desire to kick back and be amused, this is one to watch.
    • Funny and charming

      8.5
      Much of the appeal of this show likes in the chemistry between the leads, who co-created it and have worked together for years. They're portrayal of best friends is very real and also very funny. The show manages to touch at the underlying emotions of the characters in a way that never seems saccharine or that even stops the comedy; even the most emotional scenes have humor.



      I don't love the premise of a woman who gives up her high-powered job to raise a friend's baby. It's a strange scenario, and presumably the ex executive is living on savings now and at some point will need to get a job. I would like to see that, since raising babies and flirting with your married ex doesn't seem like enough for someone who has spent years in a job she appears to have loved and been good at. But even if the show is a little shy of sense, it is very funny and charming.moreless
    • The funniest show on TV that no one talks about

      9.5
      It's a shame this gets no hype whatsoever from USA Network or the internet because it's really great.
