Well, I am not saying it was a bad show and I am not even saying I will not watch it, but forgive me if I am a little skeptical towards new ABC sitcoms. Every year we hear about how great their new sitcoms are, and they are usually bombs. Last year this time, we had :

Freddie
Hot Properties
Crumbs
Emily's Reasons Why Not
Sons & Daughters

Not only did none of them get renewed, but Freddie was the only one that actually made it through the whole season. Any network can be wrong on a show, but ABC does it to almost all their new sitcoms every year. They have been in a sitcom slump since the debut of 8 Simple Rules and Less Than Perfect. This network just keeps bringing on bomb after bomb in the sitcom area.

Well, maybe that will change this year. 2 of the 4 new ones this fall could last awhile...(the Thursday ones might not work out, I would have put in Heaton and Locklear's shows there, hopefully one of the two is back in production for mid-season or fall 2007.)

Is Ugly Betty considered a sitcom? I am looking forward to watching this...I saw the original novella when it aired in Latin America...very funny...but not sure if the American public will get it?!

I have it under as a drama. See the General Drama board for the drama pilots. Betty is like a one-hour comedy, though.

thanks...i will definitely look it up!

also got a chance to see this new pilot for ABC called Knights of Prosperity! went into it not really understanding the premise, but it was hysterical!!

it's about a group of guys & a girl who are planning on robbing mick jagger's house to make some money! sounds like strange premise, but the characters MADE the show!! hysterical!

Default Men in Trees two thumbs down

You are kidding about men in trees being good I hope.... Perhaps I am just biased becuase I live in Alaska and get tired of the same old stuff on TV. All this show is Sex in City part II with an very poor attempt to match the amazing writing in Northern Exposure: A bar, a rich man in town, a New Yorker new to Alaska, a potentially rough love interest, and the whole radio show deal (can we say Chris in the Morning)... come on... they haven't even touched the quality of writing that Northern Exposure captured and play off the age old sterotypes about Alaska. They should have spent more time telling a story rather than creating a love circle.. of course that is what Sex in the City was about. I wish networks would spend some time really developing good stories with story lines that step beyond what has already been done.

Moreover, we don't even have raccoons in Alaska and the hair dryer making the electricity go out? What a writing cop out- it was a poor transition into everyone being mad at her about the Seahawks. This show is dumb and presents nothing new.
