Family groups are going to just love Accidentally on Purpose

I was never a big fan of Dharma & Greg (and by "never a big fan" I mean "I really disliked it"), but I'll give Jenna Elfman's new sitcom a shot. It's about a thirtysomething film critic who gets pregnant after a one-night stand. Family and parents groups, you can open your e-mail programs right now if you want to get your media campaign to get this show canceled underway early. Here's a sneak peek at the show.

Jim: Calling family groups religious nutjob groups sounds like something a liberal would do. Resort to name-calling.

Jim: Just like a liberal to resort to name-calling. Kinda like Perez Hilton. You must have so much in common with him. For the record, I'm pretty stable. College educated, married almost 22 years to a loving, successful husband, my 18-year old son starts college this fall, faithful member at church, had 3 jobs in 22 years as a successful paralegal, never been arrested, paid all my taxes, supporter of several charities, lots of great friends, homeowner, little debt, etc.

Family groups? You mean religious nutjob groups? What does "family" have to do with it?

There are a few obvious points about the show that family groups would certainly support. One, if the main character had practiced abstinence, she wouldn't be in such a pickle. Second, she didn't abort the baby.

sounds like a show on the CBC, Sohpie something...
can't watch the video, but if it is like the CBC show, then kid's going to be half black which leads into another set of "situations" for the sitcom.

I love Jenna Elfman & I've never heard the phrase "accidentally on purpose" used in such a negative way. It means that the person had mixed intentions or wasn't aware of their subconscious desire to do something that happened. Lighten up!

I hope the show gets canceled just because its' just plain bad- just like her last show. The slang term 'accidentally on purpose' means : "Seemingly accidental but with veiled malice or harm."
Gee sounds like a laugh riot..It bothers me everytime I hear the title of the show. And yeah- I don't like Jenna Elfman she plays the same person all the time- annoying.
