Editorial Reviews

Sean's a divorced gay dad who's trying to juggle it all. From his overbearing boss and offbeat employees at work - to his pushy mom and weekends with his teenage daughter at home - handling it all is no easy task. So when Ellie, his 14-year-old bundle of joy, moves in full-time, it's a whole new challenge. From keeping his boss happy, his employees motivated and enduring his mother's tactless "advice" to raising a smart, grounded and healthy kid, it's going to be a growing experience, to say the least. But if anyone can swing it, it's Sean. Thomas Lennon, Megan Hilty, Sami Isler, and Linda Lavin also star in this hilarious comedy about balancing life and work.

Love Sean Hayes. His comic timing is great and he and Linda Lavin are well suited to play the overbearing Mom and son dynamic. I have decided to buy the season pass.

The cast is great and the comedy shines. My sister and I watched this, along with my 14-yr-old daughter, and we all laughed.

I like this show so far. I think Linda Lavin as Sean's mother is the BEST choice for a tv mom I've seen in a long time. Sean Hayes was one of my favorites in Will & Grace and I do enjoy this show and watch it almost every week. It's a cute show and it does make me laugh.

From what I read the critics panned this. I watched it last night live and thought it much funnier than the show before it.

From my experience the first seasons of shows always flounder around a bit.

Give it time and bring Megan Mullally in as his coworker and this will go over the top!

Break a leg Sean!

I bought the series on the strength and fondness I had for Sean Hayes performance on Will and Grace. I wish the network had given this show more time to gain an audience following. I thought the ensemble casting was brilliant, even though it was reported that Hayes and Linda Lavin didn't get along. This show was of a quirky nature that I think some of the cast gave breakout performances that could have made it a hit. I'm casting my memory back to Caroline in the City which might not have had a chance without Malcolm Getz as Richard. In my opinion Thomas Lennon and Echo Kellum carried this show and given a chance it could have propelled their careers to new heights. Why must networks cancel funny clever shows? We as viewers were not even given the opportunity of viewing the entire season. The scripts were clever and funny; even a little bawdy in a good way. Show 5, "Nobody Puts Sean in the Corner" was laugh out loud funny. I wish Jim Burrows had stayed on as director, maybe this show might have had a better outcome. I highly recommend all the shows of this series that are available, as I beleive 2-3 may never see the light of day

Sean Hayes is Sean Hayes. He's an adorable guy both in terms of looks and the way he comes across on screen. He has a flair for the dramatic - or at least for exaggerated emotions - and this may or may not be a good thing, depending on the viewer. If you felt his antics as Jack on Will & Grace were a bit much, then I suppose a whole show that centers around such a similar character may be an issue.

I wish the character of Sean had not been so similar to Jack though. I mean come on, both are gay men who are very out and quite flamboyant. Both discover later on that they had managed to contribute to a kid being born. And the story of the kid begins to intermix with the regular stuff. The only main difference is the fact that Sean is pretty successful career-wise while Jack just drifted from job to job. And as much as the show tried to give him very different problems and all that, one cannot shake the comparison to Jack.

I think the only other aspect of the show that really jumped out at me was the involvement of Megan Hilty, who had just gotten out of the show Smash, that had also been cancelled. She was, well, hilarious in this show. It was nice to see her in a comedic role - which sort of reminds me of her take on Galinda in Wicked. She didn't have to be quite as crazy as Sean's character, but was still just as engaging and entertaining.

But I can also see why the show was cancelled. It tried the whole episodic nature of storytelling and things just never became quite as funny as they could have been. There was no clear direction of where things were going to go week after week and you just have story after story. And Sean is not Jack since Jack worked since he was flighty and directionless.

Love this show. One of the greatest shows since Friends. Right up there with The Big Bang Theory and Brooklyn Nine-Nine! So sad that NBC cancelled it. I really miss this show =(
