    Default Malibu Country, anyone? Maybe the sleeper comedy for the season?

    Happened to catch it last night, not deliberatly, just doing the idle channel changing that one does sometimes, and something about it caught my attention. The good use of Lily Tomlin probably had a lot to do with the decision to watch - her character seemed to be a cross between her Ernistine (Laugh In) and Vicki Lawrence's Momma from The Carol Burnett show. The teenage kids were pretty good, Reba herself, hilarious and the new neighbour was annoying as hell, in a good way. I think I am going to give it a chance, since the show is actually watchable AND has a story, a rarity in what passes for comedy today.

    I don't know if it will last long and it does look a bit cookie cutter but I will check it out.
    Thus do we growl that our big toes have, at this moment, been thrown up from below!

    I watched it because I love Reba but I don't think it's going to be a long running show. It's OK but definitely not a Big Bang Theory type of comedy.

    I, too, doubt it will last, but I love both Reba and Lily. So I watched last night and will continue to do so!
