I miss Ellen in her sitcom days
Verified purchase
I miss Ellen in her sitcom days. This is a good show. The only complaint is that this season is too short. I wish they gave her a chance with this. Shame on them.
If you had been following Ellen in her previous sitcom, you might need some time to adjust to her character change here. I think her previous sitcom character fits Ellen's personality better. Still, one thing all Ellen characters have in common is the sense of humor. So, enjoy!

DON'T MISS THIS ONE-SHOULD BE A CLASSIC!!
Verified purchase
This show is hilarious!!! Cloris Leachman's timing is unrivaled!!! Jim Gaffigan proves he can do TV sitcoms when he isn't trying to play himself. VERY ENTERTAINING!!! Just wish there was more than one season!! Also,
Ed aka Tug, only featured a couple of times, played opposite Ellen brilliantly!!

Thought this series was funny. Disappointed it didn't get a second season
Verified purchase
Thought this series was funny. Disappointed it didn't get a second season, however, by not getting another season, it allowed Ellen to eventually get her talk show.

Older Show fun

A good cast of characters. Ellen,of course, is the reason to watch. She can be Lucille Ball like at times with her humor and physical comedy.
