I got a chance to catch Enlightened last night was Laura Dern, Luke Wilson and Charles Esten (Whoís Line Is It Anyway). Itís about a woman who has a breakdown from a office fling that failed. With the language and dialogue, this was definitely HBO. I guess this is being pushed as a dark comedy. I didnít see the comedic aspects. I saw more drama that would fit on the Lifetime channel minus the language. It didnít do much for me. Itís missing something. The Big C is a comedy and does a brilliant job of balancing funny with serious issues. Much like MASH would do. Iím not sure Enlightened  has what it takes. It definitely has the names, just not the writing.

I've got Last Man Standing penciled in with Tim Allen.

Let's cross our fingers and hope he has the magic touch.

Starts next week

I got to watch the hour premiere last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Reminiscent of Home Improvement, but different, I had several laugh out loud moments. The chemistry is there. Good writing. A show I will look forward to watching. Yaaaaa

Well, some shows are just what they are. Not deep and no need for a recap. This be one of 'em.

I crossed off both The Ultimate Fighter and The X Factor from my Watchlist. Just wasn't interested in either one this season. So, that leaves me more room to try out some of the other shows that have been suggested.

So right from the start, a critic's point of view... and we all know how 'important' those thoughts are.

Quote
So apparently Tim Taylor had a secret family. Either that, or nobody thinks we'll realize that Last Man Standing is Home Improvement with daughters instead of sons. And groans, instead of laughs.

Kicking off last night despite the fervent prayers of TV Guide Magazine's Matt Roush, Tim Allen's new comedy tests the meaning of both "new" and "comedy." Using the Improvement template as a cookie cutter, the show casts Allen as a macho dimwit (sound familiar?) with a manly job (right?), a hot sensible wife (of course!) and a house full of smart-mouthed children. Only this time, it's smart-mouthed daughters ó and that's what passes for an original idea around here.


Because ABC is counting on the folks who loved Improvement to eat up Standing, they presented a pair of episodes last night so we could get a full dose of parental doofery and "you're not a real man unless..." jokes. Sorry, that stuff may have flown back in the '90s when flannel was an acceptable look and Jonathan Taylor Thomas had a career, but today it just feels Cro-Mag. In fact, if it weren't such a reminder of one of ABC's other comedic misfires, this thing could have been called Last Caveman Standing.

Did you check out Tim Allen's return to TV? And will you be coming back again next week?

Well, seems the blogs (Watercooler) have a slight different view.

more good news about Last Man Standing

Quote
Despite negative reviews, people were curious to see Tim Allen's new sitcom. Last Man Standing debuted to 12.95 million viewers and nabbed a 3.5 rating among industry-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, overnight Nielsen ratings showed.

ABC sounded happy afterward, noting that the show achieved the network's highest demo rating in the Tuesday at 8/7c time slot in nearly two years.

The comedy had to face one of the three top-rated shows on television, CBS' NCIS, which attracted 18.66 million viewers (3.9), yet managed to improve substantially upon No Ordinary Family's debut audience of 10.5 million.

Against NCIS and Allen's comeback, the first hour of The Biggest Loser on NBC drew 5.34 million people and The CW's 90210 1.54 million. Fox pre-empted its usual lineup for the third game of the ALCS between the Detroit Tigers and Texas Rangers, averaging 7.93 million fans.

I'm gonna give Terra Nova one more chance tonight. If it doesn't improve from the previous shows, I'm going to drop it.

I think I'm already done with this. It's going nowhere. More to the point, it hasn't even started yet for it to go anywhere. There just isn't much to the show at all.

Sadly Iím done with Terra Nova. I have no desire to waste my time watching this mediocre show any longer. It was obviously clear, this show is trying to appeal to the 9 to 90 crowd and just falls flat doing so.

Now I can pay attention to the more entertaining shows like 2 Broke Girls, Two and Half Men, Mike & Molly and well just about anything else is more entertaining.
