Review by Eva 9/26/04
I had high hopes for this show because I was so happy to see Jason
back on television. The show revolves around Tony Kleinman, played by
Alexander, a former sports writer who now writes a newspaper column
observations about his life. Tony also co-hosts a sports talk show on
television with former football player Bernie Widmer, played by Malcolm
Klienman has a wife and two kids. The kids ignore their father, and when
tries to get involved in their lives, they reject his involvement every
This show had very few funny moments at all and it isn't as well written
as, for example, Dave's world (another CBS situation comedy that was based on a real-life writer).
The few times I laughed were at
delivered by Malcolm Jamal Warner. Jason Alexander and Wendy Machine, who
plays his wife, have absolutely no chemistry together and are not
believable as a
married couple. I hate to say it, but unless the writing of the show
and casting changes are made, "Listen up" will not be seen or heard for too
My rating: from 1 to 5, is a 2 because I like Jason Alexander
Malcolm Jammy Warner's characters and their love-hate relationship
airs on CBS on Monday nights at 8:30 ET 7:30 central time.
