    Another 80s style sitcom a la "Hot in Cleveland" and "Sh*t My Dad Says". Comfortable like an old sweater you dug up from the back of the closet, but horribly outdated, full of holes and smelling of mothballs. Nestled between "The Middle" (same traditional style, but much better in every respect) and "Modern Family" (a different league altogether), the show was set for success, but in thatAnother 80s style sitcom a la "Hot in Cleveland" and "Sh*t My Dad Says".

    this is just a great new show . There is hope that Better might turn into a solid series: the writing is smart and patient, and dialogue wed to Casey's good-guy dopiness lands well. Better With You fits great in the new abc comedy block on ABC I LOVE IT

    Better With You fits in with that lesser two-thirds of ABC's returning sitcom block, and while it's by no means an eyesore, it hasn't done anything to improve the neighborhood.
