That pilot turned out to be The Winner, which premiered tonight on Fox. It started at 8:30, right after The Simpsons. I turned it off at 8:38. There was nothing new, original or exciting in the premise, the acting or the overblown laugh track (a grumpy man telling his wife to shut up doesn't earn the canned sounds of sidesplitting hilarity). It's like every other tepid sitcom you've ever seen.
Sorry, Rob. I hope this does well for you. But if the rest of the viewing public turns off to it as quickly as I did, well, here's hoping the next one hits. You deserve a good comedy vehicle.
