I'm Better Without "Better With You"

This new show by Shana Goldberg-Meehan (“Friends and the unfortunate “Joey”) is your average, generic sitcom with a laugh track (I just threw up a little in my mouth. HIMYM is the only show that gets a pass on that one). I was happy to see Joanna Garcia again after my 2006 addiction to “Reba”, but I think this will be one more in her trail of failed shows.

We follow three couples at different stages in their relationships. Mia and Casey have been dating for 7 ½ weeks when Casey proposes - yeah, she’s knocked up. Mia’s sister Maddie has been with her boyfriend Ben for 9 years, and not being married is a valid life choice. Parents Vicky and Joel have been married for 35 years. It really freaks me out to see Kurt Fuller in a sitcom after seeing him as violent angel Zachariah on “Supernatural” and uber creepy coroner on “Psych”. Nice to see Debra Jo Rupp in a network comedy again. If you’re looking for a politically correct, cliché, overacted sitcom, go for it. Chances are, ABC will keep it on the air for at least seven seasons.

Wednesdays at 8:30pm on ABC

Stay Tuned….(just not to this)
