I am surprised and a bit sheepish to say that I watched 2 new sitcoms and laughed out loud and will continue to watch them. One of them is Go On with Matthew Perry. Even Tom liked it; we dissected it a bit to determine why it was so appealing - good writing, charmingly wacky cast and thoughtful set-up - the grief group.
The other show follows it, The New Normal. From the commercials I thought I would hate the character Ellen Barkin plays - a bigoted, ultra bitch conservative. But the writing is good and there is some balance to the show which I like. (Please note: I would not watch a Seinfeld episode if George was in it because I couldn't stand him. So we will see how I feel over time.)
It's been a while since I had guilty favorites. Watching any of the new shows?
