'Romantically Challenged' Debut Is Challenged in Ratings

by Laura Prudom, posted Apr 20th 2010 4:00PM
Romance isn't the only thing that's proving challenging for ABC's new sitcom 'Romantically Challenged.' Apparently, its ratings are facing an uphill battle, too.

According to the Live Feed, the Alyssa Milano vehicle delivered "average" ratings on its Monday night debut, with a reasonable 11.6 million watchers and 3.1 in the adult demo. For any other timeslot, the bow would likely have been seen as a success, but with an epic lead-in from 'Dancing With the Stars' (which captured 20.8 million viewers and a 4.7 share), plus a couple minutes worth of overrun from the reality hit which likely boosted the numbers from 'Challenged,' the midseason sitcom could be in trouble before it's even begun.

(S01E01) Alyssa Milano is one of those actresses certain segments of the population gravitate to. Her latest project brings her back to her sitcom roots, in more ways than one. From the first scenes in the restaurant the "gang" hangs out in, 'Romantically Challenged' had all the trappings of an old school buddy sitcom.

What to Watch: April 19

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 19th 2010 6:00AM
'Romantically Challenged' (9:30PM, ABC) series premiere
Former 'Family Guy' writer Ricky Blitt created it, Emmy winner James Burrows directed the pilot and 'Who's the Boss?' and 'Charmed' star Alyssa Milano returns to the tube in this comedy, about a newly-single mom and attorney who's more than a little nervous about re-entering the dating scene after her divorce. Rebecca (Milano), in fact, hasn't dated "since Clinton was in office," and the fact that she's the mother of a 15-year-old son doesn't make finding a new love match any easier. Nor does her younger sister, Lisa, a sweet, protective woman who is way more sexually adventurous than Rebecca. Lisa's definition of making it two second base: a threesome.

Another Delay for Alyssa Milano and 'Romantically Challenged'

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 7th 2010 8:00AM
Alyssa Milano's new series, 'Romantically Challenged' is bumped down to an April 19th premiereIt must be frustrating for stars when their new shows, which are supposed to premiere at a certain date, keep getting pushed back. Not only does that keep their professional lives on hold, but it probably gives them a feeling that the networks are not too thrilled with their product.

Such is the case with Alyssa Milano's new ABC comedy 'Romantically Challenged.' Previously given the premiere date of next Monday, April 12th, the show has been moved back a week to April 19th. The most likely reason for the change is for the show's lead-in -- 'Dancing With the Stars' -- to squeeze in another two-hour stint to pump up their ratings. In a counter-opinion, Alyssa gave this as the reason for the date switch on her Twitter account: "No freakin' clue."

As a former teenager who crushed (all right, still crushes) on Milano, my opinion is probably jaded. Nevertheless, she should be given a chance to succeed or fail. Here's hoping ABC is priming her for success rather than cutting their losses where they can.

Alyssa Milano Is 'Romantically Challenged'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 30th 2010 8:05PM
Alyssa MilanoNo, that's not an assumption on the actress' amorous ways, although I'm willing to put that assumption to the test if she's particularly irked by it.

The 'Who's the Boss,' 'Charmed' and 'Melrose Place' star has landed a new sitcom on ABC that can easily earn some steam since it's airing after 'Dancing with the Stars.'

'Romantically Challenged,' a sitcom about a recent divorcee looking for signs of life after marriage, will start airing on Monday, April 12 after 'DWTS.' The show is created by former 'Family Guy' writer Ricky Blitt and James Burrows has been tapped to direct it.

It sounds ridiculously simple and run-of-the-mill in terms of creativity, but sometimes the simplest ideas have the potential to catch fire. Does the show have the potential to be hot or will it go up in flames?

Alyssa Milano Pays Visit to 'Castle'; 'Romantically Challenged' Episodes Cut

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Nov 16th 2009 11:22AM
Alyssa Milano to guest star on ABC's 'Castle.' Sometimes less is more.This seems to be the case for actress Alyssa Milano after ABC has announced it's cut the order for her upcoming show 'Romantically Challenged' from thirteen to seven episodes. Milano's consolation prize? A guest spot on the hit show 'Castle,' which was recently picked up for a second season.

In the episode 'A Rose for Everafter,' Milano plays Kyra, an ex-girlfriend of Nathan Fillion's character Richard Castle. Sparks will fly when Kyra and Richard are reunited during Kyra's wedding. Jealousy will ensue on the part of Stana Katic's character and Castle's muse, Detective Kate Beckett. The relationship between Castle and Beckett can be described as hot flirtation, which will be sure to bubble up with the introduction of Kyra.

ABC exec calls Heigl's latest remarks "unfortunate" - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 8th 2009 5:55PM
ABC logoABC president Steve McPherson just finished holding court at his network's executive session. Not much in the way of news came up, but when an astute critic -- namely me -- brought up Katherine Heigl's latest foot-in-mouth incident, McPherson didn't mince words.

He called the Grey's star's remarks -- where she complained on several talk shows about her 17-hour first day back on the set, a day that supposedly was created to accommodate her promotional schedule for The Ugly Truth -- "unfortunate." He continued: "It is what it is. People are going to choose to behave the way they behave." He felt especially bad for the show's behind-the-scenes crew, who also put in those long hours without complaint; "It's really hard for the people busting their tails every day to hear that (from Heigl)." He later said that "I'm not going to try to explain someone else's behavior," and repeated the word "unfortunate" once again.

ABC set to pick up Alyssa Milano comedy for midseason

by Mike Moody, posted Aug 4th 2009 2:01PM
alyssa milanoAlyssa Milano's career resurgence continues (or begins, it depends on your perspective, I guess). ABC is expected to order 13 episodes of Romantically Challenged, a sitcom about a thirtysomething man dealing with his new girlfriend (Milano) and his needy best friend. If picked up, the series will air midseason on ABC, around the same time the network plans to premiere three dramas, Happy Town, V, and The Deep End.

This news comes almost a year after the network dumped Milano's last shot at a sitcom, Single With Parents. Romantically Challenged almost ended up on ABC's fall schedule, reportedly due to the strong buzz surrounding Milano's performance. But the network decided to push it back, presumably to make room for its other new comedies, including Bill Lawrence's Cougar Town and Hank, starring Kelsey Grammer.
