Anyone watch this? I've seen the first few episodes, and I'm sort of in the middle. They have some clever ideas...But it seems like the writing is a little weak at time. They also really push the envelope with some of they're story lines. Tonight they had a scene with the dad discussing masturbation techniques with the 13 year old kid. I'm suprised we havn't heard frantic outcry's from parental groups.

I'm sure the AFA Nazi's have their panties in a wad as we speak.

Someone would have to watch the show first.

I watched last week's episode. I cracked a smile or two, but that was all. I find the Weather Channel more entertaining.

The mom is kinda hot though.

That's interesting because I just saw it tonight for the first time and it reminded me of Married with Children, in my opinion it is that kind of a caliber show. This was a great show with normal easy to understand humor, unlike some other happy and colorful shows out there. Finally a show with normal everyday humor. I loved it.

I liked this show the first time it was on Fox. Only then it was called "Grounded For Life".

Well I would agree that they are trying to copy MWC, but I don't think they succeeded.

I think this show is a miss. Unfortunately networks think that stand-up comics make good sitcom stars. While that worked for Bill Cosby, Jerry Seinfeld, Tim Allen, and Ray Romano... it didn't work for even more.

However I have taken a liking to the new Fox show after "Arrested Development" called "Kitchen Confidential." I can't place my finger on why I like it... just do.

I love that show. Last night's episode was the best one so far, even though I saw the ending pretty early on. The hazings they keep putting on Jim are hilarious. I thought him becoming the dishwasher's bitch was funny as hell.

I actually kind of like this show. I'm still not sure that it has enough of a following to continue on for much more than a season though. But I will continue watching.

It's not going to to make it...too much like Grounded For Life, which also failed (well, it moved to WB first, but I think they cancelled it too). Bring back Futurama!
