    The problem is almost everything around [Sarah Chalke], including the title, which is cutesy on a stick.

    It’s got a worthy premise that’s larded up with unfunny, over-the-top characterizations.

    The outrageousness becomes cartoonish and the conciliatory moments so forced and predictable they lose their healing power. That’s what happens with How to Live.

    My whole family and I love this show. It is laugh out loud funny! Brad Garrett and Elizabeth Perkins are hilarious as the grandparents and Sarah Chalke holds her own as well. Full Review »

    A cast with phenomenal stage presence and comic talent carry this show farther than the premise deserves. This was never going to be a Seinfeld or 30 Rock but I think it has been underappreciated. Full Review »
