What A Waste
It's unfortunate this show didn't come together, because I think it could have been better. The premise wasn't bad for a situation comedy, and the show did have a few good moments, but the overall execution just didn't work.
While Ms. Chenoweth and Mr. Tenney were well cast and showed a marked improvement in just a few episodes, the supporting players were weak. The writing was also sloppy and pedantic, although after a pretty rough start it did improve a bit. Even then, however, most of the dialogue and plot lines were sub-par at best.
The shame here is that Ms. Chenoweth's remarkable talent wasn't given a better format. I'll agree with those who said that overall the cancellation was a blessing, as it opened the door for Galinda/Glinda in "Wicked." And her career on stage, screen, and television has blossomed. However, it would have been nice to see this be successful.
