  1. The idle, boozy time between one romantic relationship and the next turns out to be a sweet spot for a sitcom.
  2. 40
    The few good laughs in an otherwise so-so show are supplied by the slyly wigged-out Beth Lacke.
  3. 38
    A bad morph-job of "Seinfeld" and "Friends" but without the simplicity of the first, the chemistry of the second or the brilliance, timing, and writing of either.

    The show is a warped copy of CBS' How I Met Your Mother... except that it's cynical, smug and utterly charmless.
  5. 20
    Both shows ["Happy Hour" and "'Til Death"] bill themselves as comedies, but really, it's hard to find two less funny half hours on the network schedule.
  6. 0
    Sheer, excruciating pain.... "Happy Hour" stands a good chance of being named Worst New Show, or at least feeblest new sitcom.
