The humor is too witty and fast-paced for most drooling TV watchers. They never promoted it and the opening and title are lame. Like Arrested Development it'll die out because there is no place on tv for a truly smart funny sitcom and hasnt been since the 80s brought on all the crappy ones and were replaced by "reality" shows in the 90s to satisfy the brain-dead zombie masses who want so badly to believe that they are what reality truly is.

It wasn't that great of a show anyway. Now if they could get rid of the Cleveland Show (crap) and the new one they are putting in its place Burger something(?). The previews looks like that one is gonna be a bomb too. But I guess you have to give the people what they want and most people will watch anything. Since the average IQ of an American is around 90. Pathetic people.

There's a shocker...CNN hires back that sow Kathy Griffin, despite her despicable comments about Palin and family. If she had trashed Obama or Pelosi, she'd be shoveling confetti in Times Square

Ellen needs to be pulled, and something more consrtuctive needs to be put in it's place.

I tried watching this several times. Couldn't get into it. The actual show was not at all what I expected after watching the promotions for it--they were funny. I really do like "Raising Hope." I "hope" they don't get rid of that one.

They should have just used the same writers for Rising Grace.
