    ¡This looks pretty bad!


    For starters it has Rob Schneider in it, and the premise seems pretty weak. Especially since he's 48 and she's 31. It'll be canceled before airing 10 episodes.

    The age difference is a little scary. I like Rob Schneider, though, so I'll give it a chance.

    Awful, awful show. This was something like Fox would run. Dumb premise and only your kind of humor if you want to see a faux criminal attack scene on an old lady.

    Not all pilots are good. I watched it and I laughed and I enjoyed it. I'll watch the second week and the I'll judge.
    I love Rob and I love Eugenio Derbez... and the latin community keeps growing in America...

    I thought the pilot was decent. There was some corny and unfunny lines... The "Now I know what's going on at all those fiestas" wasn't good in my opinion. But I think it has the chance to improve and I think it will last at least an entire season.

    Well they got through the 2nd wedding on the 2nd episode. Have to say, it was kinda boring to have one solo plot for the entire episode that was a see-saw of Rob reactions. Have to wonder where they're going to go from here.

    Apparently I'm the only one who actually survived watching both episodes.

    Still not getting how or why these two got married. I don't see the connection. What does he see in her / what does she see in him? Seeing some uncomfortable shades of "The King of Queens" here where all it is the young married couple fighting all the time.

    I forgot from the first episode. Were they sober when they eloped in Vegas?

    I don't remember, but I think they were. But I'm not watching it again - one and done.

    Well I survived (tho barely) through another episode. Apparently she finds this old neurotic man "funny" & wtih a sense of humor. I still see a very paranoid, petty dimwitted, OCD lucky dirty old man who got lucky getting a hot wife.

    So what do we think of the brother in-law Hector who "will never leave"? His little guitar bits & song and dance in the end credits remind me a lot of Jack Black in Tenacious D - sophomoric & silly. Looks like Hector is going to be Rob's permanent sidekick on the show.

    The latest episode dealt with Rob wanting to learn Spanish because his relatives were talking trashing about him and wanting to confront them. Basically a rip-off of a Seinfeld plot, and a poorly executed confrontation scene as well. It just wasn't a very satisfying payout.

    Also getting a "creepy crazed milled aged man vibe" from the Rob character on the show. He just seems so high strung and paranoid. How long will this show live on the coattails of the Big Bang Theory? On any other spot or night it would had been forgotten a long time ago.

    Wow, I guess I am the only one on the planet that actually liked this show. When it wasn't on the schedule tonight I discovered it was planned to be only an 8 episode run. They ran all 8. I have to say as a light and airy comedy, it was pretty funny. There's lots of comedies on that are a lot worse, like half of Fox's comedies. I think this show had potential and I thought the first episode was really funny. What I was bothered by though was that sitcom age-old premise of hot younger lady with older balding guy. Never happens in real life unless younger lady is a golddigger. I have to say that Rob did have a pretty nice on-screen house!
