Jerry O'Connell's ability to get hired
That Jerry O'Connell gets work on a soon-to-fail series each and every season validates the American viewing public's taste and the notion that casting directors have no idea what they are doing. O'Connell is neither funny nor engaging - ever. He serves as a reason for hope among others who seek work in television without any discernible talent or ability to amuse.
Shaloub and Penn are very capable comedic actors, but the show wastes their talents.
Not sure what goes on in the offices of network executives who review shows. It's shouldn't be this hard to tell funny from unfunny. They should count the number of times the show prompts laughter. I doubt this mess elicited any, and O'Connell is the Mario Mendoza of comic actors (that's a baseball reference). Mendoza couldn't hit and O'Connell can't funny.
