TV show description:
This comedy series revolves around Jennifer Doyle (Jaime Pressly), a former high-powered executive who has fallen from grace and hit every bump on the way down to rock bottom.

With her teenage daughter Gretchen (Dylan Gelula) in tow, Jennifer moves back in with her meddling therapist mother Maggie (Jessica Walter) and takes a job in the bar owned by her good-natured (but often submissive) brother Wayne (Ethan Suplee) and his passive aggressive wife, Stephanie (Nora Kirkpatrick).

At the bar, Jennifer reunites with her former best friend Dina Simac (Missi Pyle) who turns out to be holding a grudge against her.

In the end, Jennifer realizes that she must reassess her life and decide how she wants to rebuild it.

An exceptional show that deserves to be retained for future seasons. Dialog is fast moving and entertaining. Jaime Pressley is a wonderful actress; who can not appreciate the range of facial expressions she exhibits? And I have to disagree with one of your participants in the discussion: I have a rather high IQ and find the show extremely humorous. I don’t need laugh tracks or vulgar references to enjoy a script.

Good heavens!! Anyone who feels this show is either interesting or funny…or that it’s witty and clever, must have a problem with their IQ.

We have watched several shows now…couldn’t dredge op a smile…nor a vestige of respect or admiration for the writer (s), director or actors. However, the robotic minds of today will dutifully clap and laugh when prompted by…well, I won’t use the word in mind.

I really looked forward to this new show after seeing the previews, which made it look “fresh” and different from the typical prime-time pack and featured Jaime Pressly, a talented young actress who reminded me a bit of Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett.

But after viewing 3 or 4 episodes, it became apparent it was just ANOTHER mindless sitcom with a silly, repetitive, one-tune plotline and weak, undeveloped characters spewing dumb one-liners about–what else??–sex, drugs, and drinking, complete with canned laughter at stupid, unfunny lines and forced humor. And, of course, the now obligatory “gay” sidekick character who not only obviously isn’t gay and but who kept inexplicably drooling over the men in Jennifer’s life. (What lesbian competes with her straight GF for men…..huh??) And other classic, unfunny stereotypes like “The Mean Mother.” And the grownup, dating daughter who looks/acts like she is 12 going on 40 made ZERO sense unless Jennifer gave birth when she was like 13. BORING!!!

Perhaps this show is salvageable but only with MAJOR surgery to make it resemble reality: fire the writers, lose the kid, the bitchy faux lesbian, and the phony, nonsensical storyline about the mother treating Jennifer’s boyfriend and Jennifer as patients. Obviously unethical and not even close to reality. Speaking of the mom, Jessica Walters is the only bright light on this series. She so deserves better material. As for Jaime Pressly, give her more to do than exaggerated mugging for the camera and eye rolls. It looks forced and out of character when the script isn’t that funny. After sitting through 4-5 episodes of her exaggerated facial expressions, all I could do was think of that famous line from Dorothy Parker: Her range runs the gamut from A to B.

I gave it a try; didn’t see anything funny about the show. Her haircut is annoying. Too “manly”.

Love this show. It’s fun to have a TV show set in your hometown. Have lived in Canyon Country for 46 yrs, although it used to be part of Saugus in the old days. A lot of famous actors, singers, etc., live in the Sand Canyon area. But this takes place in the average working folks area. Filming happens all the time here. But it’s always some place else we take the place for. Was 3 or 4 episodes in before I realized it was my hometown. Great show. Hope it gets renewed!,

It lacks appeal and talent. The actors are simply not believable or lovable like other TVland programs. In fact the majority of TVlander’s think the stories and the characters are way too sophisicated for what they are looking for in comedy and retro television. The stories are not comical and DO NOT make you laugh . Many people watch TVland to get away from everyday problems and have a good laugh away from reality. Jennifer Falls relates to too much reality that is occurring in today’s society and has people not forget about their problems but related to them causing them more strife. If the actors and the characters were lovable, it be great, but their not. They have no comedy timing and simply are not funny.

Not a funny show at all.
Not even sure if the girl can even act. All I really see are a lot of big eye rolls and such.
Cancel it. Won’t be anything lost.

FALLS FAILS!!! NO TALENT. EYE ROLLING OVERACTING. WE HAVEN’T CRACKED A SMILE IN THE THREE SHOWS WE WATCHED.

BORING IN THE EXTREME. A YOUNG WOMAN CAPABLE OF FINDING A GOOD JOB WORKS IN B AR…WORKS NOT!!! ENABLING MOTHER HELPS HER REMAIN AN IDIOT. WOULD FEEL SORRY FOR HER DAUGHTER BEING RAISED BY SUCH A MINDLESS NITWIT IN REAL LIFE. WHAT PASSES FOR COMEDY THESE DAYS IS RIDICULOUS!

CANCEL…NOTHING LOST!!!
