    • I had to DVR it so haven’t seen it yet, but the reviews have been pretty scathing. I wonder if it drops more than the norm next week.
      I want to like it because I like Katy Mixon.

    • Disagree with you Marc. Being a guy and not usually a network comedy viewer, I had “American Housewife” on cause I had was channel surfing before “This is Us”.. Gotta say I loved it! I thought American Housewife was funny and weirdly different (reminded me of the old “Malcolm in the Middle” show from ages ago). I’ve set my DVR to start recording it from now on. Way to go ABC!

      • There were some funny moments, but did we need to see Diedrich Bader on the bowl with his young daughter walking in on him? Ugh…

  1. Looks like TIU will be okay at 9PM. I think NBC needs to program more female centric dramas after the Voice (like TIU.) They seem to hold The Voice audience better than shows like Blindspot and Blacklist did.
