Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Lacks humor

Not sure why ABC allowed this sitcom. I've given it a chance and honestly after tonight, I'm through. Don't think I laughed even once during the show. ABC usually crushes it's shows so this is very disappointing. Can't see it lasting beyond one season.

Great show!

I love this show! It is so good to have actual comedy on TV. Between the dramas and reality shows this is a breath of fresh air! Keep this show going!!!
