    Another surprise on my TV last night.

    I had heard nothing of this show, and tuned in. And found myself LOLing.

    The opening scene, singing Air Supply, set the mood for the rest of the show.

    Jerry O'Connell and his empty house, the $200 ($400) toaster, the interview, all made me laugh.

    I added this one to my season pass.

    Anyone else watch?

    I watched until the first commercial break and then instead of FFing I hit delete.

    The part that had me laughing out loud was when they broke into the guy's house and underwear man/boy caught them. The flashlight went to his face, then to his crotch, then back up to his face. ROFLMAO!

    I like this show. :up:

    They gotta switch time periods with Caveman PDQ, or Caveman will take this with it when it leaves.

    Was mediocre to average for me. The carpool premise is so weak as to almost be distracting.

    I will give it another shot.

    I think the lifespan of this show may be measured in fruit fly lifetimes. I watched cause I'm a big Jerry O fan but this is pretty weak.

    I added this to my SP on a whim. I actually liked it. Made me laugh several times.

    The slouching son is too funny. I made a point to show him to my 17yr old son, "This could be YOU in 5 years!" :D

    SP remains for another week or two. :)

    I watched because of Fred Goss from "Sons and Daughters".

    Also the Russo brothers from Arrested Development are involved (directed 15 episodes all together and won an Emmy for the pilot). I think this might be a surprise sleeper hit that people will miss when it's gone.

    I think they scheduled this after Cavemen 'cos they thought it would make it funny - it failed.

    Not getting a second look from me.

    I definitely loled a couple of times especially when the kid in the underwear was talking about buying the oldest rubix cube and paying someone to solve it.

    I liked it, but didn't love it. Will keep it due to the dearth of 30 minute shows on my SP list.

    Ever have an actor/actress who played one role which grated you, now you can't stand them in anything? That's Faith Ford for me (whiny Murphy Brown bimbo). Anyway, I liked this show in spite of her. It's not fair I've avoided anything with her in it all these years anyway, so...

    Is it typical in marriages that a husband wouldn't be able to just ask his wife what she made with her real estate "hobby?" That was so weird and foreign to me that it was distracting... And I'm married. That and the fact she was talking about flipping houses "in this market" like it's 2005. The lead time on sitcoms isn't very long. Maybe they should've found another profession for the wife. No Realtor doing it as a hobby is buying $400 toasters these days. ;)

    The over-the-top silly stuff is what usually ruins comedies for me. Therefore, the popular kid in his underwear was not a highlight for me. Also, the running for a parking spot scenes were waaaay slapstick for my taste. Wow me with the writing and save the physical comedy for the laugh-tracked shows, thank you.

    Lastly, the old crappy car pulled me out of the moment as much as Hummers showing up on New Caprica. A professional guy with a family and a nice house in the suburbs is rockin' a late 90s Lexus (was it)!? Time for some very appropriate product placement.

    Mostly nitpicks, sure. Still, I liked the show and I'll be back next week.
