Even after she reverted, the show just felt "different".

That's the point where I stopped too. Maybe I should have held out a few more episodes. Oh well. I already have more sh*t recording then I can keep up with.

I really think that is residual. It happens in lots of things in life. Your car gets dinged. Suddenly every wobble and noise is an issue.

I just finished a major deployment of a new software version of a major design tool. You would not believe how many people notice something they think is different when it wasn't because other things are different.

She must have had botched plastic surgery, has her chin covered in the promo for new movie and her face skin looks like it has been stretched and sanded.

Just finished watching the series finale. Very cute and of course a happy ending. I'm going to miss it.

M&M was a really good show. I have no idea what went on behind the scenes to kill it, but it was one of the best sitcoms on TV these days. Just a great mix of characters.

And when they sang the title song to their baby at the end... ok, I'll admit, I teared up a little.

I see love...

It was definitely dusty at my house, too.

I stockpiled the final 6 episodes and watched them over the weekend.

I thought it was a very satisfying ending to the show, so kudos to them for getting their act together leading up to the finale...

Originally, it was to be called "The Second-Fattest Housewife in Westport". ABC just recently changed the name to "American Housewife". This was probably a good example of how a bad name can kill a show before it even gets off the ground. There is no way that show would have survived with that name. Now the name is generic enough that the show will live or die on its own, and not because it's saddled with an incredibly short-sighted name.

Honestly, TV execs have to be one of the most inbred groups alive.

Eh? The writer and producer of the show gave it the original title and the execs changed it.

That's a much funnier name to me, IMHO..

Nicolas Cage's "It Could Happen to You" originally had the title "Cop Gives Waitress Two Million Dollar Tip" (according to imdb, but that's what I remembered too). I liked the original better.

Just saw the age of Louis Mustillo looks much younger than he is.

I remember that too. Liked the original better, too.

The problem with Katy Mixon's show was the negative aspect of the original title. Self-deprecating? Maybe. But just enough negativeness surrounds the wording to create the wrong kind of buzz.

Shows that get saddled with a poor title have to overcome both the challenge of grabbing eyeballs, and a title that's already pissed off millions. It's a fine line, and perhaps in the right circumstances can be pulled off. I don't think this would have been one of those cases.

Katy Mixon has gained as much weight as Melissa McCarthy has lost.

At one point in the show I really thought she was pregnant, but she never seemed to get un-pregnant.

I'm sorry you can't see it, but you are absolutely fat shaming her.

Do you consider that a bad title or a brilliant title? I really liked the show and thought the title was perfect.

You can try and turn this around on me, but you were making a character judgement about a young girl based on the clothing she was wearing.

I don't think there's anything wrong with this actress having gained weight. I only made a false assumption about why she had.

I'm not turning anything around. I'm applying what I learned. While I admit that I think the outfit she was wearing was inappropriate (in poor terms) I should not have said she was coming off as white trash. That was wrong. I own that 100%. I should not have said anything at all.

Would you want a woman seeing what you quoted about her, and what you added to that quote? I don't think so. It's unnecessary and judgmental. Been there, done that. Won't do it again.

For the record, the outfit below is what I was saying was inappropriate. I stand by it. It wasn't for a role. It was for a night out on the town. Some people don't like Crocs. I don't like those style of shorts.

Spoiler:

Yes, I made an incorrect assumption, and I probably would not want her to read it, no, but there is no judgement about her in my statement.

The embarrassed face emoji is a judgement about ME because I automatically assumed that she was pregnant, when in real life I would never assume that about someone who has gained weight. If she wasn't an actress, I would not think twice about it. The unfortunate reality is that in Hollywood, it's unusual for an actress to gain a noticeable amount of weight outside of pregnancy.

Anyway, the original title was a terrible title for the show.
