'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' on the CW
Rachel Bloom is remarkable as the star/writer of this unusual show, which is already on its 13th episode. She won the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. She won a Golden Globe too.
The running comedy is hit and miss, and a little goofy sometimes -- not as sharp and tight as mainstream shows like Big Bang Theory. At least there's no "augmented live" audience. The payoff is the musical numbers on the show, which pop up unexpectedly and often involve some kind of choreography. Kind of like Galavant, but better. The musical numbers range from cute to priceless (especially if you happen to live in Southern California).
Kinda cheeky and edgy to talk about a "crazy" ex-girlfriend. Good thing it's being done from the girlfriend's point of view. This show was nominated for the People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Comedy.
