, those ratings weren't very good at all: 7.744 million and only 1.1. in the 18-49 demo. Some are already predicting it might be the first new show to go. I blame the presence of Pablo Schreiber, who was also in A Gifted Man last season. Pablo + CBS show on Friday = failure. Just kidding, I actually really like him.
I decided to watch it on demand today as well and I actually liked it as well. There are a few things I'm not wild about: I did roll my eyes at how Martina managed to save the case the end thanks to some random observations and flat-out luck that always happens on these shows (lucky that her niece was there to hear the high-pitch sounds on the phone, just happening to stop by the hair salon to see the bottle, etc.) I couldn't tell you the names of any of her family and they all seem like walking cliches right now. And, wow, was Stephanie March's character such an over-the-top, antagonistic mean girl. I get that goes with the territory, but it was just so clumsy. And, even as a straight guy, I was amused at how they found a way to get Janet Montgomery in her bra in the first five minutes.
But I thought Janet was real good; especially surprising, since I know she's British in real life, but I thought her accent was pretty good and not too over-the-top. And she made me care for Martina, even though the story has been done before. The supporting cast was solid too; besides Pablo and March, it was fun seeing other familiar faces like Kyle MacLachlan as the boss and Erin Cummings as one of the sisters (and since I saw her first as Sura on Spartacus, it always takes me a second to recognize her, being fully-dressed and all, heh.)
So, I'll stick with it, but it will probably remain On Demand viewing since it's up against Grimm. Of course, after those ratings, who knows how long it will be kicking around.
