About the show:
Emmy nominee Anne Heche ("Hung") stars as Beth Harper in NBC's new comedy about a not-so-ordinary Midwestern family. After choking on a hero sandwich in her kitchen and suffering a dramatic near-death experience, Beth - an absentee wife and mother - is revived and claims she can now talk to God. Her teenage daughter, Emily (Madison Davenport, "Shameless"), is horrified and her husband, Tom (Michael Landes, "Final Destination 2"), is skeptical. To make matters worse, Tom's ex-mistress, Carly McKenna (Alexandra Breckenridge, "American Horror Story"), is in a coma after a close encounter with lightning in the Harper's front yard.
As Beth warms up to her new life, she strives to make amends to the people she has alienated over the years, including friends and neighbors Jenna Dennings (Heather Burns, "Bored to Death") and Maggie Tompkins (Joy Osmanski, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"). Despite everyone's initial hesitancy, Beth begins to win people over with her new positive attitude, cheerful optimism and unbridled love.
"Save Me" is produced by Sony Pictures Television and Original Film. Novelist John Scott Shepherd ("Henry's List of Wrongs," "The Days") created the show and serves as executive producer, along with director Scott Winant ("Breaking Bad," "True Blood"). Additional executive producers include Neal H. Moritz ("The Big C," "Prison Break"), Vivian Cannon ("The Big C"), Alexa Junge ("United States of Tara") and Darlene Hunt ("The Big C"), who also serves as showrunner.

I love me some Ann Heche, nice to see her back in a TV roll again. The last roll I remember her in was on HBO's Hung when she played Jessica Haxon.
She still looks nice at 44 IMO.. I haven't seen her since way back in Nip Tuck (I didn't watch Hung or Men in Trees)
I'm not a 30 minute (21? via DVR) sitcom fan but I thought this had some potential. It could go either way... hopefully not the Cougar Town way. They tried to make it somewhat edgy which helped. Such as when they pixelated the image a couple of times and threw in a censor for good measure. Based on the show's pedigree I'll keep watching... for now.
Personally I liked Cougar Town but lost it when it went to TBS, I also like 1/2 hr comedy s as they work nicely when I don't have enough time to watch a 1hr program that the majority of my programming is.
While I like the lead actress(Anne Heche) I just don't see it going anywhere and don't particularly care for many of the supporting cast.
I think both her husband and daughter were settled in a little better this week. Story wise they headed straight to the typical sitcom avenue and lost whatever edge they had last week. So much so I could see it playing on the Disney channel... For me the highlight was the pinball machine. I go way back with them.
Last week's ratings were so low it will probably be cancelled before I cancel my series recording.
Maybe it's taking a hiatus break or something?
It's been canceled.
