For the sake of completeness, let's talk about the other new Wednesday night comedy on NBC. Or not.

This was a miss. The jokes weren't really funny. Every one of the peripheral characters at the office are *bad*. The only good characters were Alex and Helen, but still, Hank Azaria as a romantic lead is something I'm not sure I could get behind.

The pictures of Helen's deceased fiance were funny in a creepy kind of way. And the highlight of the episode was a drunken Helen finding half full glasses of wine around the apartment to replace the ones that Alex kept taking from her.

I caught this last Thursday while waiting for "Jersey Shore" to come on and it made absolutely no impression on me at all. I would watch it when nothing else is on (like I did!) but it feels like I tend to do that with at least one NBC Thursday night sitcom a season.

I really liked this show, probably because Hank Azaria surprised me by not being his usual annoying Hank-Azaria-in-a-live-action-production self. I found him incredibly likable, and also enjoyed the would-be wingman whose name I'm forgetting.

Overall I liked the understated-ness of it, and hope it lasts at least as long as its British counterpart.

I was surprised about how likable Hank Azaria was as well.
Al Madrigal playing the wanna be wingman was pretty entertaining as well. I liked him on Gary Unmarried. I wont be surprised if this show gets canned after a month or so, but I'd like to see how far it could go.

Sources: Variety, the Futon Critic, Kim Did you miss "The Great American Dream?" It was only cancelled after two days. Now we'll NEVER know how that vote turns out. "Six Degrees" is really gone this time.
