Second week and I'm still liking Suburgatory, Wednesday nights(8:30/7:30 central) on ABC.
Nice looking HD, nice looking cast and some funny scenes that don't get too raunchy, season pass for now and both tweens are also liking it

It's interesting Wiki lists 4 episodes even though only 2 have aired, they must be privy to what's coming up

TV Notes
'Revenge' and 'Suburgatory' Get Full Seasons; 'Happy Endings' Gets 6 More Scripts
By Tim Kenneally, TheWrap.com - October 13th, 2011

ABC has ordered full seasons of its new series "Revenge" and "Suburgatory," whiling ringing up six more scripts for its comedy "Happy Endings," the network confirmed.

"Suburgatory," which follows a father and daughter after they move from New York City to the suburbs, premiered Sept. 28 to strong ratings, taking a 3.3 rating/9 share in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic, with 9.8 million total viewers.

The comedy stars "Six Feet Under's" Jeremy Sisto and "Shameless'" Jane Levy.

"Revenge," meanwhile, gave ABC the highest-rated premiere for any new drama this season when it bowed on Sept. 21, receiving a 3.4/9 in the demo and 10.1 million total viewers.

The comedy "Happy Endings," which premiered in April as a mid-season replacement, has shown encouraging growth of late, increasing its performance in the adults 18-49 demographic by 18 percent over last week with its most recent airing Wednesday night.

My wife and I really like this show. Kind of has a bit of an indie film feel to it.

It's a but too scattered so far. I find it mildly enjoyable but it could be cut off my watch list at any point. I am not attached to it so far.

This show is starting to grow on me. Most of its appeal is the cast. Levy is very good, and she's very cute.

All those years on Curb Your Enthusiasm, I never realized that Cheryl Hines has such an awesome physique.

I really like the show. What's interesting is to see Jeremy Sisto, who was so intense on Law and Order, display a deft touch with light comedy. Cheryl Hines' slutty suburban MILF is also very good.

Sisto also had some moments of humor on Six Feet Under, but it was much darker and more twisted.

Was skeptical at first, but this is becoming one of the better new shows of the season.

I was surprised too. I assumed it had stinker written all over it, but I am really enjoying the show. Good ensemble.

Very few comments about this show, but I'm finding it to be the best, cleverest new sitcom of the season.

It's not Queuing up on my DVR(it's generally watched within a day of airing)
Cheryl is turning out to be a favorite, although the whole cast seems to work well IMO.

Anyone else think the red-haired daughter looks a lot like Debra Messing?

This show gets better with each episode and the cast is top-notch (oh, and Jane Levy is a stone cold fox). We are in the middle of Six Feet Under, so it's weird see both of Jeremy Sisto's roles.

I agree, it was nice to see this show again. I'm not sure if I somehow missed a couple episodes(or maybe the last couple were repeats) but it sure seems like it's been a while.
This show has it all, Jane Levy for those who appreciate the younger crowd and Cheryl Hines makes an awesome MILF And oh, Cheryl's daughter isn't too bad either, for those who like the younger crowd looking like the older crowd, trying to look like the older crowd

Agree on Cheryl and Jane but the actress who plays Dalia, I'm not sure about. Maybe it's the wide shoulder dresses or the too heavy makeup but at times, she looks like a linebacker in drag to me

Oh, man. I was dying when Sisto's injury resulted in a "Misery" situation. So hilarious.

Love this show. It gets funnier every week. Oddly, I don't watch any of the other highly rated ABC comedy shows on Wednesday. This one with it's hilarious cynicism just hooked me. Must be my New York (Brooklyn) upbringing (Fahgettaboudit!)

Huh, whaddyaknow? I like this show too.

For some reason I thought it was another version of Friends/Modern Family set in suburbia so I've had it sat on my DVR since the first episode. I was quite surprised when I watched it and saw that it's a blend of Gilmore Girls and Daria with the colorful vibe of a Bryan Fuller show.

Not exceptionally hilarious but enjoyable stuff with good dialog and cast.

I too am surprised this show isn't mentioned more. I mean it's got great characters, they are funny, they look great and it has very good looking HD......what more could you ask for It doesn't sit long on my DVR before it's watched
Also enjoy Modern Family but Suburgatory is right up their.

I'll admit.... I'm liking it too!
Had no idea what this show was about but I kept seeing new episodes pop up in my newsgroup page, so I gave the first few episodes a chance- and I'm hooked.

My (14 + 15 yo) kids really enjoy it to, FWIW we do live in the 'burbs' and they tell me some of the school stuff is pretty accurate

Excellent cast, well written dialogue, good production values... and sometimes funny... what else could you ask for?

The cast are uniformly entertaining but I am very much enjoying Alan Tudyk. He can carry the line between charming buffoon and crazy very well.

The show has an edge too. There's a undercurrent of surreal and unconventional running through the show. Not enough to alienate viewers in the way Better Off Ted did, but enough to sneak under the radar so mainstream viewers probably don't notice that they are enjoying it.

My wife and I also enjoy this show. Sharp, fun and weird but not too weird. Good casting too. I laughed at the Father-Daughter sex talk this week.
