Better to have asked... "Why?"
Emily's Reasons Why Not:

1) Very bad premise 2) Worse writing 3) Director and writer don't seem to understand the concept of what comedy is suppose to be 3 A-Has this person EVER directed comedy before? 4) Got commitment before showing network a script 4 A-What FOOL committed to 6 episodes? 4 B-No sanity check to stop this train wreck before it began 5) Heather Graham isn't able to pull off this comedy thing 6) Rest of cast didn't seem to know what was expected of them

RESULT: Cancelled after one episode.

It would be unfair to blame this all on Heather. I'm sure she was well compensated for jumping from film to TV. I think that she just didn't have her heart in this. Of course, as bad as this was (and I think that the producers should release a "Very Special Complete Series" DVD so we can see this continue downhill) there have been worse.

The networks have lost all grip on how to produce good television and how to recognize what needs to be nurtured and what needs to never happen in the first place.

Hopefully, someone lost a job over this; we can only hope that a lesson has been learned.
