Happily Divorced Cancelled!

Happily Divorced got off to a strong start, with the series premiere drawing 2.4 million viewers in summer 2011. The second season opened with 1.4 million viewers, and its average of 1.5 million clinched a 12-episode back order, bringing the series’ second season to 24 episodes. That final batch of episodes launched to 1.3 million viewers last November.

R1 is actually Jon Lovitz as "The Critic"

[quote]Isn't this basically "3 strikes, you're out!" for Fran? She's had 2 sitcoms and a talk show cancelled within the last 8 years.

Maybe it's time to try something else.

The characters were appealing but the writing was BAD.

That show sucked

It was fun at first but the writing got consistently, noticeably worse. The characters WERE appealing and the actors gave it their all. I blame the writers.

Really badly executed. Just silly sitcom situations. Now Tichina Arnold can get on a project worthy of her.

R9, go shave your pussy!

You saw the clunky jokes coming like a freight train and the actors really hammered home the punchlines. Too much winking and nudging going on.

It also never WENT anywhere. They shared the house. He couldn't afford to move out. She gave him zingers about "ruining her life" by coming out. Yuck yuck yuck. After a few episodes of THAT, they should have decided where to take the storyline. Also, Fran got WAYYY more attention to her lovelife than Peter, the husband, did. Just like Will and Grace, they focused far more on the hetero relationships. And the gay jokes were stale and trite and silly. T

The actor playing Peter portrayed him as a near imbecile, too.

The notion of a married man coming out to his wife in mid-marrige/mid-life is NOT always "funny." There was an opportunity for great pathos and a chance to deal with the subject matter in a more complex, deeper and more meaningful way WITHIN the sitcom format. It wasn't Proust, no, but the writing could have been SOOO much better. They missed the boat.

Fran Drescher is about as funny as an ass boil. I barely got through one episode and couldn't watch another.

It wasted so many good actors, including the guy that played her ex husband and of course, Rita Moreno.

It's weird - the original premise was that DW Moffat was her new bf and Peter her ex, but they seemed to have fired Moffat early on....or he left knowing what a steaming piece of shit it was.

R13 is an Anti-Semite.

I'm not anti-semite, honey, just anti-Fran.
