It was a lousy start for the new sitcom. It seems that NBC made the right decision when they held it for a post-sweeps premiere.

    I only saw the pilot and it was better than what I thought, but I won’t be watching it again because even though Anne’s character is said to have been this horrible person by her husband and daughter and her friends, they’re the ones that I found unlikeable. I didn’t think she really should have been treated like she was. And it also doesn’t help that it just wasn’t very funny to me. The premise is intriguing though.

    Didn’t know anything about this show before seeing it on Hulu. Instant hit! I really enjoy the characters and messages.

    I love the show. An actual feel-good show. Who knew there would ever be another one of those. Most sitcoms survive on sarcasm and nasty one-liners. This one is great fun. The cast is wonderful — especially Anne H and the husband. I hope it is renewed for many, many seasons.

    Keep the show.
    She has great comedic timing, excellent cast, don’t like everything they talk about, but I love the honesty of someone trying to figure things out. Things get messy sometimes. i like the fact that they have the courage to discuss things about faith in the ” reality” of how things can be. Don’t torpedo it now…let it grow and find it’s audience.

    At last something to laugh with, and have a GREAT message to boot! I can’t wait to see the entire series… Please give this sitcom a chance, it will catch on, believe me.

    Just read online that the series finale was coming up..I hope that is not the case. It is very cute and funny. A good family program ….come on NBC..give it a chance

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the show! Insightful. Funny. Honest. Happy. Poignant. Worth watching. SO much crap out there! This show is fabulous!! Congrats to the Producer. Come on, NBC…don’t give up! The crowd that will love this show just doesn’t know it exists!

    Those are some really bad ratings. I think it would probably be a good idea not to make a sitcom with religious undertones. You start out of the gate making a large group of viewers wary about your show, and when you are NBC, people are already wary about watching your shows. NBC should treat sitcoms like dinner conversation. Never talk about politics or religion.

    Anne is terrific and extremely underrated
    How could anyone not love her. She and us deserve for this series to make it.
    I honestly believe its a winner and so is she.
    Good luck

    I wish the people in charge would give some shows a chance. This one has been on for two episodes (in one night) and already they are worried about ratings for the season?

  11. Big Dan says

    It was the first sitcom that I was hooked after seeing only the first episode. The 2nd kept me hooked. Great! Keep it on.

  12. Rich says

    Nice, I like it, that only means it won’t last. Lots of potential, Anne is great.I’ve seen two episodes, can’t wait to see more. Wish they would give it a chance.

  13. N. ANSCHEL says

    SAVE ME is very cute, I have only seen 2 episodes, so it is too early to tell if it will keep its fresh and funny nature with a special message. I hope they keep it on for a full two to more seasons to give people a chance to discover it… and by the way most comedies I will not watch – this one is great.
