  1. While there's nothing particularly wrong with Do Not Disturb, neither is there anything so inspired as to make you leap to your feet, crying, "Yes! This is what television needs! More workplace comedies! More hotels!"

    The result is a show that tries to be adult and titillating but just comes across as juvenile and badly paced, as if the cast were waiting for laughs they must realize won't be arriving.

    Instead of opting for the trite title, Higginbotham should have looked harder for something more novel. He could have found one suitable title right there in his own dialogue: We're thinking, of course, of "Don't Let This Happen to You."

    Broad isn't automatically bad, of course, but broad and woefully unfunny are a pretty deadly combination.

    Why, then, this debacle, with bad jokes, listless lines and a parade of cliches? Beats me.
  6. This is a show that could bury the [sitcom] genre altogether.
  7. 0
    It is both bad and offensive in its depiction of some of the workers at a small hotel.

    Niecy was hilarious and really makes the show. I can see it really growing into it's own.

    I watched the show last week because I thought that a friend of my son was in the cast. I later found out from my son that he was dropped from the cast. How lucky for Brando Eaton that he wasn't a part of this flop. It has to be one of the worst sitcoms I have ever experienced. The great man in the sky must have been watching out for Brando! Expand

    A very pale rip off of the British soap/comedy "Hotel Babylon". So weak and stilted. Jason Bateman directed the pilot. Hard to believe this very talented comic actor and FOX could launch such a dud. Expand
