It's funnier than it sounds. Check it out.

Despite all the things working against itself in the Trophy Wife pilot - having its protagonist be drunk for half the episode chief among them - there's a certain charm and confidence to the show's opening episode.

If the writers manage to iron out the few wrinkles the show has, Trophy Wife could become a decent hit for the network.

We can understand if you wrote this off at first (that title is awful), but "Trophy Wife" turned out to be a sweet family comedy.

You know exactly where this one is going and yet it works for the most part.

It has a few laughs but doesn't deserve any trophies.

There's a tremendous energy to Trophy Wife, making it a delightful comedy that's far more wholesome than its title implies.

Trophy Wife could prove to be one of the more charming comedies on television.
September 27, 2013
Grounded in parental reality, it's funny and promises to be funnier.
September 25, 2013
It's the optics of the title that will prevent perfectly reasonable people from not tuning in. Keeping people once they arrive will be easy.
September 25, 2013
As extreme as the three-wife concept might be, the execution is believable and the scenarios genuinely funny.

There's something oddly comforting in the harmless, fluffy nature of the show.
September 25, 2013
Akerman's effortlessly sexy wackiness is a delightful counterpoint to the dour authority of Marcia Gay Harden as first wife Dr. Diane and the daffy neuroses of Michaela Watkins as flighty Wife No. 2 Jackie.
September 25, 2013
What won me over to Trophy Wife was the sense that the writers not only have specific ideas about who the characters are, but they also have a great deal of affection for every member of this ad hoc family.
September 24, 2013
The charming pilot swerves quickly from the expected Bravo-reality-show-catfight scenario and becomes something more complicated and rewarding.
September 24, 2013
In many ways it's not fair -- a few weeks with this cast could produce some intriguing results -- but it's hard to imagine the audience waiting around to see what jells.
September 24, 2013
Akerman bumps into things with abandon and just the right glimmer of grace. Her knees knock and her limbs fold up like a newborn colt, learning to walk. But her show, anyway, already has legs.
September 24, 2013
The only character who really lands is Akerman's - she's charming and plays drunk amusingly - but that's the one who needs to if the show is going to work.

It's a pile of cliches on top of stereotypes on top of bad comedy.

Much to my surprise, Trophy Wife turned out to be one of my favorite pilots of the fall season. And pretty much completely not the show I thought it would be.
