Benched - Anyone Watching?

So USA did another legal show (they do seem to love them) with Jane from Happy Endings and Ted from Better Off Ted. Sadly, I'd rather watch Happy Endings and Better Off Ted than this show.

I've got every episode recorded but haven't watched any yet. The commercials looked promising but I've got a lot of shows on my to-watch list.

We watch and think it's pretty funny. I agree Happy Endings was much better, but we enjoy this one as well. It would probably be relatively mediocre if it weren't for Eliza Coupe.

I've been keeping up. Eliza Coupe is great and the rest of the cast is very good. But agree it's no Happy Endings or Better Off Ted.Those were high quality shows though, especially Ted. So it's probably too much to expect Benched will be anywhere near good. I'll stick with it for a while.

It's so-so for me. Not bad but not good enough to keep up with.

I love Eliza Coupe but have been fairly disappointed with this one. It's not terribly funny and her character is written to be unbelievably foolish.

I've been enjoying it. Sure, the characters are a bit over the top sometimes, but it's a sitcom. Overall, it's fun to watch and leaves me wanting more.

If we're talking Happy Endings alums, this show is much better than Casey Wilson's "Marry Me," which I've also been watching, but which doesn't give me that same feeling of wanting more.
