    I wonder if the new Rob show is any worse? The previews definitely make it seem just as bad...

    I'd never heard of this show until this thread, and it just looks awful. I mean it just looks bad. Some Like It Hot or Tootsie were at least good, this just looks unfunny and unskilled and full of stereotypes about everybody.

    Who greenlit this?

    I can't wait for it to crash and burn.

    and here is another review of the show I enjoyed:http://tv.ign.com/articles/121/1214220p1.html

    The theory I've heard is that they needed to fill a vacant space where another canceled show had been, so they greenlit this out of desperation.

    And like you said, at least Some Like It Hot is actually funny (not to mention one of the best last lines in cinema history) this just isn't.

    good lord, and tonight, during "the Middle" and "Modern Family" ABC was running ads touting their new "Hit Comedy "Work It""

    really??

    every review I saw said it was dismal.

    and it did poor in the ratings.

    but it's a "hit". . with who, exactly?

    Yeah, glad I somehow missed this.

    I seem to recall they originally planned a schedule full of shows that were basically all "Last Man Standing." It was all "Men in a woman's world."

    It's bull is what it is.

    I don't understand how NBC is so far down in the ratings wars. They have all of the best sitcoms aside from "How I Met Your Mother" and "Modern Family."

    ABC has probably only had about 5 great sitcoms in its history and that's counting them airing "Get Smart, Again" in '89.

    The only way I can see this is as being a hit in any sense of the word is that it causes anyone with half a brain to hit the ceiling.

    Yeah, this whole trend of BUT WHAT ABOUT THE POOR MEN needs to stop. It's nothing more than some men being threatened by the fact that women are growing more powerful while ignoring that men still hold most of the power and make most of the decisions.

    Another article I read about this piece of crap sitcom is that it ignores the wage disparity that still exists between men and women, in 2012, so the very idea falls flat when you think about it for more than a second.

    And I don't even LIKE "Modern Family." But I recognize it as a quality production.

    That show's not my cup of tea either, but I recognize that it has talented people behind it and is of good quality even if it's not my taste. But this? Objectively bad on every level.
