Aw, damn. I enjoy this show too. Some really great characters.

Halloween show was fun, although the horse/woman costume was kind of creepy (creepy/funny, though).

Wife #2 and her kid are favs of mine.

Funny that the young girl didn't recognize Elizabeth, and wife #2 had no idea who Beance is. I'm proud that I know both, even tho I have no idea how to spell Biance.

Morton Downey has a son?

Beyoncé once had a fiancé.

Too bad, as I enjoy this show. It's not "A" material, but it's entertaining.
I'm not sure I'd ever trust a prediction from the Cancellation Bear!!

Show picked up for rest of the season. I guess it made sense to predict it was a goner, it's lead in is nowhere as strong as the other sitcoms.

I loved the Halloween episode. Ironing Man cracked me up!!

The Cancellation Bear is amazingly accurate on these matters. But not perfect.


Here they analyze why they were wrong, and some potential game-changers (like ABC Studios vs 20th C-Fox):

Just so you know, I was kidding about "the Bear" It just seems such a weird name.

It's sad that I look at that list and most of the shows I watch are in "Cancellation Predicted"

I thought this week's Christmas episode was very well done, and REALLY funny. Yeah I know it's kind of a takeoff on "The Hangover" movie. And I found it kind of endearing in a way.

I realize this show is hanging on by a thread, but I hope ABC decides to keep it.

Agree. Great episode, one of the best versions of the "flashback episode" I've seen done.

Entertainment Weekly had an article this week on five new shows you may have given up, that deserve a second look. And this was one of them.

Love Bert!

The cancellation bear always says on twitter that the predictions are for the show not to get renewed next year, not get cancelled now. That being said, I am really enjoying this show too and hope it's staying around.

I really hope it gets renewed. I love it. I am looking forward to it even more now than The Crazy Ones, the other only new sitcom this season I have kept watching.

I just read this issue yesterday and was glad to see that. I hope the show makes the cut. I'm watching several of these new sitcoms and would really love to see most of them make it but, alas, I think most of them won't.

Even 'Moms' is enjoyable to me. But I have to admit that it's probably mostly because I love Allison Janney. It's been a pleasure being able to watch her in TWO series this season!

I'd also love to see The Goldbergs, the MJFox show, the Sean Hayes show, and the Robin Williams show make it but I think it's all empty wishful thinking.

Another excellent episode, The Big 5-0. They managed to milk every character for humor, and it all worked.

Diane: "I demand to speak to your manager"
Clerk Lady: "We don't believe in titles here. Everyone is equal"
Diane: "In that case I demand to speak to somebody else"
Clerk Lady: "Heaven, could you come over here?"
Heaven: "Blessed be the day"
Diane: "I'm going to continue to speak with you"

The look on Bert's face when he was anticipating being told hot dogs are made out of dogs.

In Pete's office, when Kate walks in wearing nothing but a trenchcoat, promising a blow... suddenly realizes there are other people in there, and turns to "blow-ing wind outside, yeah, a really blowing wind, hence the coat"

Yep- another good episode- this show continues to get better and better- if anyone didn't catch the Christmas episode that aired last month, you should try to watch it- that was one of the funniest episodes of any show we have seen in a long time.......

Ratings still not good, though- hope it can somehow make it to a season 2

This show just get's worse with every episode as the characters get dumber and dumber. I may watch the rest of the season out of habit, but I definitely won't watch next year if by some miracle it gets renewed.

I did enjoy the secretary announcing that the DoJ was there and having Pete tear apart the paperwork he was working on.

This complaint would carry so much more weight if not for the cringe-worthy grammar

Sorry, I completely changed how the last part was stated and neglected to remove the apostrophe in the process.

This show isn't great, but is one of the few new shows this year that I kept watching.. I know that sounds like a very backhanded compliment, but it's reasonably amusing..

and actually, all 3 of the wives are attractive in various ways.. Some combination of all 3 would be hot. The first is sort of an Amy Farrah Fowler type, if the second were a BIT less ditzy she'd be a "perky Rachel Ray" type.. and the third is young.. heh.

I love this show. It's the most underrated show of the new season. I hope they figure out a way to keep it past this season. I think the execs at ABC like this show, and that's why it didn't get cancelled already.
