    I haven't seen the last one yet, but so far, I've liked every episode. The actors seem to be having a lot of fun with it too. It's definitely a toned down The League, which is a show I love.

    I think I'm a couple episodes behind, but I love the show so far. The last one I saw was the best yet and had me laughing out loud the whole way through. Some of the best comedy I've seen in a while (it was the one where Mike meets with the female colleague who wants career advice, and she turns out to be a "hang with the guys" girl.)

    This makes me sad because when she appeared on Dollhouse I said "Hey it's [Oliver Platt] Russell's assistant from "Huff" [RIP :(]

    Do you watch all three of these? Which is the best in your opinion? I have all the episodes of this on my DVR and was planning to catch up. I watch the others but don't love either one. I'm more partial to Better With You just because I like Josh Cooke so much. Thanks!

    Traffic Light is the best of the three.

    Perfect Couples is second

    Hated Better With You.

    I'd also throw Mad Love into this mix as it's another similar show....but probably ranks third of the four.

    I'm kind of with you...I like Traffic Light the best but the brunette on Perfect Couples is just gorgeous so I might move the show up just for her ;)

    Better With You and Mad Love were just awful...deleted the SP by the third episode...

    Olivia Munn? The geek hottie? IMO she's attractive, but not all that. Plenty of more attractive women on TV IMO. But I do enjoy the show. I think it's gotten better and better.

    I have to agree, she's definitely a hottie and I like the character :)

    Good to know I'm not the only one with a thing for her. Her tennis outfit was fantastic. :)

    I've seen at least one or two of all of them, though whichever one was on last night, I missed most of since my Tivo (s3 with original drive put back in as the replacement drive died) rebooted..

    I originally started watching Better With You when it started, thought it wasn't great.. STOPPED watching.. and then, which is rare for me, started watching again I think over Xmas break.

    I actually think they're all *decent but not great*. Even Perfect Couples, which most people here seem to hate.

    I think I like Mad Love better than the rest, but more because of recognizeable actors/acting styles.. If *any* of them got cancelled tomorrow, I wouldn't be too annoyed.

    So they're kind of interchangeable, but there seems to be not too many great sitcoms nowadays.. (Hmm, maybe there are -- NBC Thurs, the first 3 CBS Mon, but of course we know 2.5 men is going down.. modern family.. But most of them I seem to record and watch in batches.)

    Hmm, my comments before were pretty lukewarm, but I've been watching the ones I had recorded (and argh, looks like I missed at least one or two -- and only 5 are on fox.com) in the past few days.. I'm liking it more. It's fairly amusing.. not laugh out loud funny most of the time, but entertaining.

    I forget which of these "a bunch of couples" shows got renewed and which didn't...
