    Even though it's on NBC, The Firm scored a 1.4 in it's debut on Sunday (The worst debut in NBC history) and a 1.0 the other night.
    It's toast.

    Just watched this. Mixed feelings.

    There were parts that were actually funny. But too many parts that were stupid. The ethnic jokes were mixed; some funny, but some just had too much of a "Mexican joke from 30 years ago" feel to them.

    * Rob Schneider is terrible. I know he created this, but they should have cast someone else for his character. I think if this show dies, it will be because of him.

    * Too many plot points just too unrealistic. For example, she's a young, family oriented Hispanic. So she gets married to a twice as old white guy she's known for six weeks without telling her mama.:confused: Not a chance on earth. It makes it hard to stick with a pilot episode when they throw crap like that at us.

    * Not only is RS not a good actor, he doesn't even make sense for her. If she's gonna fall for a white guy, he'll either be good-looking or rich (or both).

    * Cheech is still funny.

    Having said all that, there were moments and the SP survives.

    Get rid of Rob Schneider and the mooching uncle and it might be watchable.

    Remember how Mike and Molly started with way too many fat jokes? Now just has one or two per episode and mainly focuses on the funny families etc. I am giving this a chance to make the Hispanic culture more of a situational humor rather than racist jokes.
