TV show description:      
This sitcom follows the life of Beth Harper (Anne Heche), an absentee wife and mother from the Midwest. After choking on a hero sandwich in her kitchen and suffering a dramatic near-death experience, Beth is revived and claims she can now talk to God.

Her teenage daughter, Emily (Madison Davenport), is horrified and her husband, Tom (Michael Landes), is skeptical. To make matters worse, Tom’s ex-mistress, Carly McKenna (Alexandra Breckenridge), is in a coma after a close encounter with lightning in the Harper’s front yard.

As Beth warms up to her new life, she strives to make amends to the people that she’s alienated over the years — including friends and neighbors like Jenna Dennings (Heather Burns) and Maggie Tompkins (Joy Osmanski).

Despite everyone’s initial hesitancy, Beth begins to win people over with her new positive attitude, cheerful optimism, and unbridled love.

Series Finale:

While rallying to save a hospital, Beth alienates her friends with her holier-than-thou attitude.

    Please don’t cancel it.My family and friends love it. It is a relief from some of the sit-coms that get renewed that are basically just a series of raunchy one liners that aren’t even funny. It is one of the very few NBC shows that we watch since most of their prime time lineup seems to be so called “reality” shows.

    One of the best new shows to come along in a VERY long time! Fresh new idea, excellent cast! I could see so much potential for future story lines. Extremely disappointed!!!

    Brilliant, when all around you have sex , violence and strong language, along comes a show that inspires and gives hope. Keep it going.

    Very funny and moving! Finally a show I can watch with my teenage daughter without the offbeat or sexual humor. I think you should bring it back!

    What a quirky, fun and entertaining show! Cute concept and a great cast. Anne Heche is always such a breath of fresh air (see Men In Trees as well). She’s such a natural and oh so witty. It’d be such a shame for this show to be cancelled. It’s so annoying when they don’t even give new shows a fighting chance to really show their stuff. The feel-good shows never seem to stick around and it’s a travesty! Hope it can be saved — so enjoyable!!

    What a great, quirky new show! It’s funny, entertaining and very enjoyable to watch. Anne Heche is always such a breath of fresh air (i.e. Men In Trees) — what a great cast and such a cute concept! Please don’t cancel it….it’d be such a shame. Why are all of the feel-good shows eliminated so quickly from the TV schedules? Please save LSave Me”!!!

    I was just getting the word out about this ‘new show’ when it disappeared! How can your ratings be accurate with so few episodes? I don’t think viewers had enough time to discover it! (Bring it back please.)
