Yeah, I'm not surprised you don't have an icon for this...
Anyone else watch it?
It's about as good as COP ROCK was, which I thought was EXCELLENT, but the rest of the country thought differently.
This show has potential, but there's one naggingly bad thing they're doing, and that's having the actors sing OVER the song lyrics, like karaoke, instead of just playing the music and letting us hear the actors voices, because Hugh Jackman really can sing, and I seem to remember Melanie Griffith being able to sing as well, but the music is too loud to hear them.
As I was saying I really enjoyed this first episode, so I'm gonna guess that it'll get canceled by the third episode.
The Cop Rock comparison, sadly, will be right on the mark, cancellation wise.
Ratings were real bad. 5.8 overall, 2.5 18-49. And the 2nd half had 30% less viewers than the first half did, so you can expect no better than 4.7 & 2.1 next week.
In other news, Nashville has finally been officially canceled (it was originally on hiatus/returning in November), and it's been joined by Online Nation, which aired Sundays on The CW Network. New shows that have had their episode order increased include Gossip Girl, Private Practice, The Big Bang Theory, and The Unit.

Not only that, but for the little bit we made it through, it was hard to tell if the singing scenes had anything to do, continuity-wise, with the scenes immediately before and after the song and dance. Conversation, random song, conversation. Maybe it got better in the second half, but we couldn't last that long.
As an avid reader of the books by Lee Child, I was not a fan of Tom Cruise as the lead. But this was a lot of fun and followed the book well. One liners and great action made me hope that there will be more.
