Top Critic

Writers Chrissy Pietrosh and Jessica Goldstein, from "Cougar Town" and "My Name Is Earl," find a way to create an ensemble of characters around Longoria who are broad caricatures and yet recognizably human.

A comedy that strains for fizzy yet comes off as frantic, like so many other network comedies this show wastes great actors -- in particular the divine Eva Longoria -- on bad writing.
