I was excited for Sherri when she announced she was getting her own sitcom on Lifetime. The bulk of her tv career has been playing bit parts on well known shows like Friends, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Suddenly Susan. Not to mention her 4 year run on the hilarious Less Than Perfect. A show of her own was just what she deserved, but this one wasn't quite what I expected. It's based on her real life experiences with divorcing her husband who cheated on her with another woman and got her pregnant. Yeah, the premise is very similar to Reba, but it wasn't a rip-off. Far from it.

I watched every episode and unfortunately my hopes for it fell after each one. Sherri's performance is excellent, funny, a bit sad, but determined to make life better for her and her young son Bo. The supporting characters were meh at best. James Avery (you might best remember him as Uncle Phil from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air) is funny, but only appears in 4 episodes. Wish there was more of him. Sherri's best friends and co-workers played by Tammy Townsend and Elizabeth Regen feel flat and one dimensional. Her snarky "frenemy" co-worker Summer (Kali Rocha) tries too hard to be funny and instead comes across as obnoxious. Malcolm Jamal Warner stars as Sherri's ex-husband and does the best with the material he's given, but it's not much. Most of the episodes are predictable and made me chuckle at best. Not much else. Sherri alone couldn't carry the weight of making the show work.

It's unfortunate Sherri wasn't picked up for another season. With some radical changes and a better supporting cast it could've done better. Ms. Shepherd deserves better.

I think Sherri is adorable and I loved her in this show. The struggle of a single working Mom, dealing with an ex-husband, his new baby with someone else, a crazy job, trying to be an actress and a new love interest all felt realistic to me and hit just as many great funny moments as it did the poignant ones. I think the supporting cast was first rate, and Elizabeth Regen reminded me of many of my NY BFF's. Maybe she didn't strike the right note with others but I think everyone was well cast and did an excellent job of supporting and enhancing the story. Catch episodes on Netflix and judge for yourself but this is a 5 star show for me!

I dont know what it is with television? When you have a really funny show and the viewership doesn't catch right on RIGHT away they cancel it. Thank goodness for the Brass at NBC for sticking with Cheers whos first season needed to be desired as well as a littlew show called FRIENDS too.

The high archies of tv as well as cable should stick it out for more than just one season. OMG how I do wish they had given Sheri another season too.

Sincerely, Joe

I have always been a fan of Sherri Shepherd and she and Whoopi are the ONLY reason i watch The View. I was more than excited when i found out Lifetime picked up her show and i couldnt wait for its premiere. Every episode cracked me up and before i knew it my family and i were watching it each week. Although the premise is cliche, the cast more than makes up for it with each person bringing something different to the table. I hope Lifetime picks it up for a second season and i recommend it to anyone, whether you can relate or not and if the show is renewed, please bring back Donna!!!!She was hysterical! Overall, its a great show.

Sherri: The Complete Season One
13 Episodes on 2 Discs, Widescreen Edition (2010)

Actress, comedienne, author, and co-host of The View, Sherri Shepherd stars as Sherri Robinson, a single mother who works as a paralegal still attempting to follow her dream as an actress. (Obviously, this role must be SUCH a stretch for her.) Sherri has a six year old son and is separated from her husband who cheated on her with a white girl who works at Quizno's and got her pregnant. Most of Sherri's conflicts are with her son, her ex, her career, and dating new guys.

I wish sitcoms could just be judged on how funny they actually are. Laugh-tracks still seem unusual and fake. When it doesn't rely on sentimental moments and just stays in the comedy mode, Sherri is actually pretty funny. Her delivery is enthusiastic and while the story lines are very predictable each episode, her fresh expressions help keep the show going. Her rant on the "cow giving away the milk for free" was one of the most hilarious moments.

It is uncertain how many of these episodes are based in some small scale on things that actually happened in Sherri's life, but whether or not the viewer has had any of her situations, they still can be pretty funny. She is easy to empathize with and who doesn't like a mad black woman going off about her ex-husband? This is one of the funnier sitcoms this year and it is easy to get drawn in with the characters and situations.

Theo from the Cosby Show (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) makes an appearance as Sherri's ex who got a white girl Quizno's employee pregnant when he cheated on her. Her father is James Avery, the dad from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and he shows up to give her comfort and tough love advice when she has trouble keeping her divorcee bitterness at bay.
