Hank cast

"Hank" Season Premiere Review by Suzanne
Airing Wednesdays on CBS at 8pm/7c

I don't know why I have to keep repeating this in my reviews, but the main point of a sitcom is to be funny! I know, comedy is subjective, but I find it hard to believe that anyone would find this show funny (or many of the other new sitcoms on the air, for that matter).

I love Kelsey Grammer, but he is way too good for this show. His last show, Back to You, was not hilarious, but it had its moments, and I grew to enjoy it quite a bit. It did get better. Hank is not nearly as funny as Back to You, which got canceled. I was not happy to see it canceled, either. I don't think I'll get as attached to this one.

It's a shame because the premise is good, and so are the actors. Grammer plays the former CEO of a company that fired him. His family lost their home and everything, so they've moved into an old ramshackle place in Virginia. We're supposed to enjoy the fact that the rich people are down on their luck, I guess, but it's not enough without the funny lines to support it.

The actress who plays his daughter, Jordan Hinson, was excellent as Zoey on "Eureka". She's wasted on this show, though, playing a typical teen.

I have read many bad reviews of this show that agree with what I'm saying. They need to make it funnier, fast, or they will be gone. Sitcoms don't seem to last very long nowadays.
