Heaton Is Supporting Actress, NOT STAR!

The acting is second rate which is why Heaton never had her own television show by her older age. The network is grasping at a name to get viewers, but don't bother. She cannot carry a show but is good at being a supporting actress to a real star on a show. Sorry, this show is a waste of time and should be off the air soon. Boring.
