it was ok but Niecy Nashis way over the top… and needs to bring it down a little….and whoever that is thats playing the daughter ..cant act…


I was wary of this show because I consider TVLand the depressing resting home for my favorite sitcom stars – all I can do is reminisce on the great show they USED to be on – but will check it out. I'm pretty much a fan of the whole cast, especially John Beasley & Jazz Raycole (the original & far superior Claire on "My Wife & Kids").

The pilot's actually funny (to me, anyway). Well written for a sitcom — reminiscent of "Amen." I think I'm gonna DVR it.
