My Boys: Spring Training (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 27th 2009 8:05AM
My BoysI wonder if a show like My Boys could survive on network television. Probably not. Nothing to do with the quality of the show, but it seems like the type of show that does better on cable (in a 10:30 time slot) than it would on ABC or NBC, with all that pressure. Last night the guys went to spring training in Arizona (maybe a little late for that, but there you go).

As we've said before, these "open thread" posts are not reviews/recaps. They are posts done to give fans of particular shows a place to discuss the episodes. There are some shows that we don't review, and My Boys is one of those shows.

Folks, I've asked Bob to do open thread posts on shows we don't do reviews for. This is because readers complained that we don't cover certain shows or give people a place to comment about them. This gives people that place. So either we are going to have these open thread posts or the shows won't get covered.

And, no, I can't hire people to just do reviews for this show, or any other show we don't cover, for that matter. I appreciate all the volunteers we've gotten, but, unfortunately, that's not the way things work around here. We hire people just like any publication would, and right now we're pretty full up as far as staff is concerned.

i love My Boys. the only thing i dislike about it is the short season and the fact that i have to wait so long to see said short season.

One word: mellow.

This show couldn't survive on a top 5 network because it's so relaxed. And I like it for that.

You're right. It probably would not do well on network television, since My Boys is well written, well acted and intelligent. The networks only produce reality garbage.
