    Ummm I did one of those things in vegas where they pay you to watch and rate possible future TV shows. I did this today and it was for this show. I’m a TV junkie and love several different shows in several different genres. Unfortunately….this show is by far the worst writing and acting and show in general that I have ever seen. I thought it would be hard to top Super Store for the worst show ever but this one does hands down.
