    Jamie Pressley is a great actress, but this show is not funny at all! I don’t care for the individual talks at random to the camera. The filming added us a bust. I think some like myself hoped for more comedy,less reality.

    I am so disappointed in “TV Land”. I could sit with my grand kids, watch TV LAND shows and not worry about the language they would hear and etc. Now, this show, JENNIFER FALLS, premiered — and in the commercial she lets loose “S__ O_ B____!” The COMMERICAL! Think about it TV Land, we senior citizens are your largest audience. There is a reason for that. The majority of your shows are the ones we grew up with and are appealing today. Why must you lower your standards?

    Although I love Jamie Presley as an actress, I am afraid this show is heading toward a downward spiral. It is just not that interesting. I am sorry. TV Land needs to bring back Happily Divorced. It was way better than this and this show is really like a revamp of Retired At 35 . Daughter moves home with mother just like son moved home with parents in Retired at 35. And because it has Jessica Walter playing the mother and a child moving back home as I said, It is Retire at 35 all over again.

    What a disaster. Pressly is horribly miscast in what is a relevant but unfunny premise.
    She only acts to highlight the relatively funny qualities of the other cast members. As for her she should have done a variation on the Earl Character living in a trailer park with Larry the Cable Guy or some other yuck. Not sure what is more unbelievable that she has an MBA or that Ms Walters is her mother. It is too bad so much time and supposed talent is wasted on a project like this. The idea that she was carpooling with the CEO who just fired her was the lamest joke of the season. Cannot believe they pay these writers. Should be cancelled without delay.

    Jenifer Falls looks like a winner to me, anything with Jamie Pressley should be a winner, she is awesome, beautiful, funny, and a great actor, and with Jason Suplee in it it will be even greater!
