'Better With You' (ABC)

<b>What we said then:</b> What makes "Better With You" an incongruous fit with the other ABC shows is that the comedy isn't as sharp. <a href="http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2010/09/better-with-you-review-standard-sisterly-sitcom.html"><b>You'll see a lot of the punchlines coming.</b></a><br>
<br>
<b>What we say now:</b> The comedy has definitely stepped it up a notch as writers capitalize on the cast's chemistry. JoAnna Garcia belongs in the half-hour sitcom world, and we hope Debra Jo Rupp does TV forever and ever. Ratings-wise, the show has done a relatively good job of holding onto lead-in "The Middle's" audience.<br>
