    Enjoyed the show and will watch it in September. I can't say the same for the other show NBC aired Tuesday night. Animal Practice wasn't the least bit funny or interesting, IMHO.

    The Pilot was on NBC last night. New episode tonight.

    Really enjoyed the Pilot. Mr. Sunshine was not good, but this looks like it could be a hit.

    I think that's stretching it a bit. The pilot was pretty good IMO but it's got an offbeat feel to it, and I don't think Joe Six pack will really get into it, and that's who you need these days to stay alive on tv.

    Just watched the pilot since I missed it the first time around... I chuckled a few times. It was certainly better than the animal hospital show. :)

    Watched the second one tonight. Not nearly as good as the pilot IMO.

    Definitely agree. I enjoyed the pilot, but didn't find last night's episode that funny.

    I laughed a couple of times. Once was when the cat lady says "I say Ryan, you say best friend!" as the elevator door was closing.

    Yeah, I have a feeling this show won't "Go On" for much longer.

    I enjoyed both episodes, but then again I am starving for new TV.

    I did enjoy this ep. more than the pilot. It seemed more balanced. And, I had an odd craving for a Red Bull.

    I thought that John Cho had a budding movie career. I guess a steady paycheck is where you find it.

    They can only make so many Harold and Kumar movies.

    Yeah. Cause Modern Family and a bunch of other offbeat abc shows are such a ratings disaster.

    It's just gots to be funny.

    To me, it had a similar vibe to scrubs, especially after the 2nd episode. SP set for me.

    I'm in. Funny enough for a SP.

    My spouse and I both liked it so we are giving it a SP. Fills the void left by the pseudo-exit of 2.5 Men.

    Second one wasn't very funny.. (and I admit I wasn't the hugest fan of the premiere).

    The sad thing is that the funniest thing about this episode is something Matthew Perry almost certainly ad-libbed.. His look in the same direction as the cat he was holding. (The cat was looking diagonally up to the right, presumably to the trainer… and Matthew Perry did a quick quizzical look up in that direction.)

    Also, his Chandlerisms really get in the way when he's trying to be serious/empathetic.

    Anger Management does a semi-decent job of that.

    I had set the SP for my wife and tried to watch it with her, but we were completely lost. I gave up about 15 minutes in.

    I didn't realize it was the second episode. I guess setting the SP for FRO didn't pick up the re-air of the pilot the night before.
