Not Ready for Prime Time
9 September 2011 | by rcowlingvaSee all my reviews

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. I anxiously watch many new shows hoping for a treat like Arrested Development or Cheers. I am amazed that, even though ABC put the show on ice, that NBC tried to give the show a shot. 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.
