    I think it has potential, but I think it was still not all that great.

    I would point to Rob Schneider as the reason. I don't think he is the kind of actor that could carry a show.

    I've got to admit, the scene with Rob and the grandmother in her bedroom was very funny, IMHO.

    That's because he is repulsive.
    I couldn't change the channel fast enough after BBT.

    I stuck with it. They need to tone down the laugh track a bit though.

    The scene with the grandmother cracked me up. Especially when she lifted her head up and looked at the camera.

    I'm keeping it in the queue, seeing where it goes.

    I live in California and lived in Oxnard which is 50% Latino. Some of the jokes were racist but then again you could tell they were supposed to be. Why is the lead so ignorant. Is he from the East Coast? George Lopez pulled this off a lot better.

    Why would the east coast make someone ignorant? NJ/NY has lots of different races/cultures.

    I predict first big flop of the year.

    Deleted SP after 15 minutes.

    You're too late.
    The Firm has already claimed that title.

    I am hoping it won't be too full of crass jokes, such as the illegal immigrant one. Since majority of the cast is Latino, they might get away with it though.

    The hot wife is a Spaniard which is why I had a bit of a difficult time with her Spanish.

    Did anybody get the Selena joke? The grandmother is the one who killed Selena in the TV move in the nineties.

    I'd say "Work It" claimed it first by being canceled. "The Firm" is still on.

    Rob knows very little of Hispanic culture so he went with what he knew as a conversation starter.
