Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The basic premise of THE EX FACTOR is hardly plausible. But the show doesn't seem too concerned with the reality of Bella's predicament, assuming that viewers will simply come along for the ride. In return, they get a zippy script that's peppered with sexual innuendo -- some of which is surprisingly bold for network TV. Still, all that sass can't hide the problems when it comes to character development. Perhaps over time, the people in Bella's world will blossom into more complex individuals. Until then, this series is at risk of dying on the vine.
