It's the sort of soft-centered mush -- at once back-pattingly liberal and inoffensively conservative -- that seems like a Hollywood focus group's idea of what a potato-fed yokel in, I don't know, Chicago might want to watch.
The best of the witty bunch is NBC's Welcome to the Family, which will probably raise some hackles with its light-hearted look at teenage pregnancy... But it's hard to stay mad at a show this waggish.
Welcome to the Family plays like some "inspired" notion of a "cross-cultural" "modern" "single-camera comedy," and no, those quotes aren't typos.
Welcome to the Family is a passable half-hour that fends for itself without a laugh track and manages to deliver a few un-goosed grins.
