A fun show that wasn't given much of a chance
26 September 2006 | by PegapusSee all my reviews

We've seen bad shows last long times on TV, but too few really different shows get much of a chance, especially when they're on a new network. This UPN series has a bit of a dark core, but didn't get much respect at the fledgling network. In addition, some of the dialogue was a bit more grown-up than other shows, so it was never going to be a lead-in show. One could only have hoped that Pig Sty had greater exposure before a final decision to kill it went into effect.

It was positioned right after Star Trek: Voyager, which was a good opener, but the style of the show did not fit the audience that preceded it. I don't think that UPN had much of a sense of programming strategy early on, so there was never a lot of compatibility between shows on a given night. A night of all sitcoms might have been a better bet. It's interesting to see that most of the regular actors on the show did manage to move on to other projects, but there was a certain amount of chemistry in Pig Sty that will never be matched.

Even the title of the show showed a bold move--of course it reminded me of my own housekeeping habits!!
