    The smart way to go would be to turn this mess into a savvy comedy, but that may be asking too much.

    The series begins with a tenuous premise, uses it to leap to an inaccurate dichotomy and supports that with tired, unfunny stereotypes.

    TLC is a place to turn to for sideshows, and this new reality series is certainly that.

    American Gypsies, the second deplorable show about this subculture to come along in three months.

    In comedy there's a fine line between wacky and desperate. Animal Practice crosses it early and often.

    It's "3rd Rock From the Sun" without the wit or the understatement.

    The series is really good at doing exactly what you expect, which makes it surprisingly tedious for a show where lives are on the line almost nonstop.

    The result is a mini-series full of emoting that does not register emotionally, a tableau of great biblical moments that doesn’t convey why they’re great.

    Each episode has an interesting 10 minutes or so in which we see what it takes to be a real sports photographer or Nascar driver. But then we’re invited to choke down the notion that anyone who has taken a few pictures or driven a go-cart can leap immediately to the top of the profession.

    Blair Underwood makes the title character an unpleasant combination of macho and brusque. That’s how you get people to go looking for something else to watch.... As independent as this new Ironside is, thanks to the plodding writing here, he is being defined by his disability, the exact opposite of what someone in his condition would want.

    Trophy Wife is forced-frivolity mush.

    George’s mother (Olga Merediz), the show’s only amusing character, asks him in the premiere. “You’re fat, boring and stupid.” Two of those, at least, apply to this show.

    It’s an opposites-attract dynamic, something Mr. Grammer should be familiar with from Frasier, but it fails to click, at least in the first two episodes.

    It rips off “Seinfeld” so aggressively that in Episode 2 it even makes fun of its own plagiarism. But one thing it forgot to borrow from “Seinfeld” was intelligence.

    Five contestants face a potential employer in a ridiculously tarted-up competition format that results in a job offer for one of them.

    [A] wretched new sitcom.

    This series works the tropes without the humor, and the result too often feels exploitive.
