  1. The Ex List could be one of the more charming new shows of the fall.
  2. There is enough lively (if sometimes explicit) dialogue and reliable sexual appeal in all this to keep intuitive male viewers interested.

    The slightly-altered version that arrived for review more recently left me charmed.
  4. The Ex List doesn’t solicit analysis, and it has no ambition to be debated. And yet, or rather because of, this narrower vision it is about as charming an hour of television as anyone female could hope to stay home for.
  5. Despite a poor job of establishing its characters and their relationships (wait, those two aren't a couple?), The Ex-List begins with a strong, romantic premise.

    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.

    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 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

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