First, it allows you to look at Jaime Pressly for 30 minutes, which is very pleasant.
Second, it delivers a funny line maybe every seven or eight minutes.
Other than that, though, the show’s pretty humdrum.
Here’s its premise…
Jennifer is fired from her six-figure investment banking job because, well, she’s a bitch with anger issues, plus she frightens her co-workers and clients.
So now Jen’s broke and single with a teenage kid, and her only options in life are moving in with her mom and working a minimum-wage job at her brother’s sports bar.
What the series doesn’t address is that Jen’s life is really filled to overflowing with options.
With a little hard thinking, she could spin her skills and interests into all sorts of directions.
Hell, she could even take a lesson or two from her brother, the sports bar entrepreneur, and launch her own business. Then she’d never worry again about bosses firing her.
But I guess that’s not sitcom material.
