This Chicago-set sitcom follows the intertwined lives of six young urbanites trying to learn the ropes of adulthood. Through breakups and whatever other curve-balls life throws them, the pals stick together.
Just watched the NBC show "Friends With Benefits". It's a cross between the NBC show "Friends," the smell of ammonia, and strep throat. Pres. Obama's wish was fulfilled with this one - the show is, in fact, shovel ready. The show is not funny, poorly acted, predictable, and way too crude to be on at 8pm.

Also amazed that the show has been on for almost a month and no one has heard of it. While it doesn't help, the best thing for the country is to add the cast and crew back to the unemployment roster.
