Let's compare Still Standing and According to Jim:
Still Standing: Set in Chicago
According to Jim: Set in Chicago
Still Standing: Husband is a fat slob.
According to Jim: Husband is a fat slob.
Still Standing: Wife is hot.
According to Jim: Wife is hot.
Still Standing: Three obnoxious kids.
According to Jim: Three obnoxious kids.
Still Standing: Neurotic sister-in-law.
According to Jim: Neurotic sister-in-law.
Still Standing: No doofus brother-in-law.
According to Jim: Doofus brother-in-law.
As you can see the only difference between the two shows is that there's no doofus brother-in-law on the premises of Still Standing. Otherwise, the two shows are carbon copies of the other. Why in the world would CBS want to copy a monument to mediocrity like According to Jim? Not that they improved things. Still Standing makes According to Jim look great by comparison. That it's lasted as long as it has is one of the great mysteries on television today. The creators copied a mediocre show and made money by doing so. Once again the American TV viewing public is made to look foolish because they keep watching this drivel.
