Well... I've seen worse premiere episodes of sitcoms... but it wasn't exactly stellar (pun intended). Still - the characters have been introduced, and I did get a couple of laughs. We'll see where it goes from here.
There seemed to be more bad laugh track than good jokes. At least that's what my wife and I noticed. We hardly laughed. No chemistry between any of the actors and everything seemed forced. Then we watched 30 Rock. No laugh track and we laughed a lot. I don't think the Shat is going to last
