    Home Economics, a new sitcom from ABC, premiered tonight, April 7, 2021. From wiki:

    Inspired by the life of co-creator Michael Colton, Home Economics takes a look at the heartwarming yet super-uncomfortable and sometimes frustrating relationship among three adult siblings: one in the 1 percent, one middle-class and one barely holding on.

    I thought it was okay. Sitcoms take time, and this one didn't suck out of the gate. I'll give it a couple more. Topher Grace is the biggest name.

    I went in with super low expectations but ended up liking it a lot more than what currently passes as "American Housewife". It had some clever writing.

    Denise and Marina are going to be two lynchpin characters for keeping the sibs from spinning out of control and taking the show with them.

    I missed recording the first episode but caught it on Hulu. I liked it; season pass set. Hopefully it lasts more than a season, but this may be the latest in a long line of ABC 1/2-hour comedies I like that didn't go the long haul.

    The first ep seemed really "PC". Mr. Mayor is another new show that in some ways seems PC, but shows the mayor joking about it or being exasperated by it.
