  1. The Ex List could be one of the more charming new shows of the fall.
  2. A sassy, slightly raunchy comedy about a serial dater who's told by a fortune teller that if she marries, it will be within a year--to a guy she's already met.

    The slightly-altered version that arrived for review more recently left me charmed.
  4. The Ex List has the kind of silly romantic comedy premise that makes you feel dumber just for hearing it, but the show itself is actually fairly smart and funny--for the time being, at least.

    It’s more unfortunate when good actors are stranded in shows that don’t quite work, as is the case in The Ex List.

    The Ex List--based on an Israeli hit ("Mythological Ex"), with whiffs of "How I Met Your Mother" and "My Name Is Earl" - is a flat-out great idea for a TV series. But Ruggiero (who's since left the show) needed a strong partner to reign in her worst impulses, like a running gag about shaved genitalia.
  7. 30
    CBS' new comedy-drama The Ex List is a descent to the most profound levels of Chick Flick Hell, where the damned and those with Y chromosomes cry out in agony through all eternity.

    Cute show, especially the about the surfer dude. My son is an extra, sits at their table, has a wonderful smile and cute dimples. The stars are cute too. But what can a momma say! I liked all the episodes so far, not bad for an older woman to watch! Reminds me of my youth! Expand

    The show was very funny and interesting when the psychic came on. She's what made the show!

    Loved the concept. Fun to watch. Kinda reminded me of "Samantha Who?" I'm excited to see who the soul mat will be.
