I thought the b-plot was barely there for the first half, but then was the focus for the second. That was odd. Still, it did nothing for me, and like Big Bad said, seemed like a waste of Alyson Hannigan (and even Kristen Wiig).
I like Moe so I enjoy the episodes based around him - and enjoyed the nod to other Moe's Bar makeovers. Did we always know Chalmers' first name was Gary?
The show's writing would still suck no matter which network it's on. As expected, the second episode was grossly unfunny. I wasn't even watching - I just had it on in the background and it was so bad I couldn't stand to even listen to it.
