review by Suzanne
Premieres Nov. 29 at 9/8c on Lifetime
This is about three good male friends (in their 30's, I think?)
who are "modern men" but trying to be more manly like their ancestors. They play
video games and are kind of whipped by their women. The cast is very likable
(except maybe Teri Polo, who is kind of bitchy here as one of the wives), but
it's just not very funny.
It's also not very realistic. I watched 3 of the first episodes and, there were
a few laughs, but mostly it was just these guys acting like idiots, running
around and doing things that no sane person would do. A TV show needs to be
somewhat realistic for me to watch it. People have to behave like they would in
real life, to at least a certain extent. And any sitcom needs to be funny, or
why am I bothering?
I think the new Tim Allen comedy is way better than this one. He can be "manly"
falling out of bed. These guys are way too effeminate and have no chance of
manning up or making me laugh.
America's Supernanny airs on Tuesdays at
9pm (ET/PT) on Lifetime Television.
ABOUT AMERICA'S SUPERNANNY
America's Supernanny features the first true U.S. homegrown

straight into the chaos and heart of the matter, she gives viewers an
all-access look at troubled households by closely observing each

disciplinary problems, separation anxiety and picky eating to poor
bedtime routines, clinging on mom or dad, spoiled kids and attention
deficit disorder - and follow through to resolve their issues to put
families on the road to happiness.
