Now entering its seventh season, the series shifts to Tuesday nights after generating top-10Nominated for six Emmy Awards and five Golden Globes (including Best Comedy), "Just Shoot Me" is the critically acclaimed ensemble comedy from multiple award-winning writer/producer Steven Levitan. Now entering its seventh season, the series shifts to Tuesday nights after generating top-10 demographic ratings over the past two seasons as part of NBC's top-rated "Must See TV" Thursday lineup. Set in the New York editorial offices of the fictional fashion magazine Blush, "Just Shoot Me" follows the lives of Blush's colorful staff, including Maya Gallo (Laura San Giacomo), a serious journalist who is determined to change the magazine's "fluffy" tone despite the efforts of her father, Blush publisher Jack Gallo (George Segal), who remains focused solely on his bottom line and the things he feels women want. Also on staff are beauty and fashion editor Nina Van Horn (Wendie Malick), a fast-living, neurotic ex-model; Blush's commitment-phobic, in-house photographer, Elliott DiMauro (Enrico Colantoni), and Jack's wisecracking, power-hungry assistant, Dennis Finch (David Spade). During the 2002-2003 season, "Just Shoot Me" also welcomes Blush's newest hire, Vicki Costa (Rena Sofer), Brooklyn hairstylist who serves as Jack's guru of style and confidante. Expand

    Sharp, sophisticated and laugh-out-loud funny. [3 Mar 1997]

    The nicely cast ensemble is formidable, but the driving power is the wit and freshness of the writing. It snaps, crackles and pops. [4 Mar 1997]

    "Just Shoot Me" is Moliere compared to "Suddenly Susan" and producer Brillstein-Grey's other hit, "The Naked Truth." The writing is sharper, the targets in the worlds of fashion, journalism and TV news are hit more frequently, and it is funnier. [10 Mar 1997]

    It's unlikely anyone will be racing home to watch it. What we have here is a B-minus comedy that you can take or leave. Sort of like Wings. No harm done. No chill-bumps either. [3 Mar 1997]

    The chemistry among cast members holds enormous promise for comedy that's sometimes silly and sometimes sophisticated. [4 Mar 1997]

    Tonight's premiere traffics in strident put-downs before turning sticky. This show with a split personality needs analysis, not reviewing. [4 Mar 1997]

    There's some appealing energy and certainly adequate acting talent in "Just Shoot Me," but it lacks originality. [3 Mar 1997]
