    Elfman establishes herself as one of the major female comic presences on television.
  2. The acting talent here is marginal compared to the sitcom it replaces, "Out of Practice" (returning later in the season), but I found "Courting Alex" more enjoyable.
  3. "Courting Alex" is courting disaster by the way it plays against Elfman's, and Coleman's, strengths.
  4. 40
    She's not bad, just flat; not annoying, just weak.
  5. 38
    A tepid traditional sitcom.
  6. 25
    I doubt I will ever watch a single episode of "Courting Alex" beyond this first one.

    Worth watching? First you’d have to stay awake.
