    TV Land continues its foray into original scripted programming with The Exes, the network's best sitcom effort since "Hot in Cleveland."

    Familiar doesn't mean bad, and there's some likable charm here.

    Its hip replacement is a cast that's been around the block and knows how to act accordingly.

    Nothing terribly inventive here, but it's fairly easy to like the three guys, especially Faison.

    Watching it, you feel as if you have seen it all before, and will again, until eternity ends.

    All of these actors are pros when it comes to timing, moving quickly past the worst jokes before you realize how bad they are.

    I really like it that TV Land has started making these sitcoms and I really like this new one. I think it's light and entertaining. I'm so tired ot all of the stupid reality shows. Expand

    The exes is one of the most enjoyable TV shows on. We where just flipping through channels when we stopped on TVLand. The show was actually funny and fun to watch. We now make sure we set the TV timer and watch every Wednesday. Great job TVland! Expand

    Unlike most of u , i had watched the every episode of first season & i found it quite entertaining despite few slips here & there. i mean if go in history of great sitcoms most of them were slow starters & i am not saying it is in the same league but definitely has the potential & a decent cast to back on. some of them are seasoned actors & are at ease with their characters. And more the my words the series second season itself is a approval of audience. Expand

    This show has some amusing ideas for jokes but it just doesn't pull them of in a way that's actually funny. Some will make you smile, but none will get an actual laugh. Expand

    I've only seen episode 1 but ugh. It's horribly paced and poorly written. What's worse, the jokes just aren't that funny. The only saving grace is the first rate cast. Here's hoping it finds it's groove soon. Expand

    "The Exes" is written by "Frasier" Author Mark Reisman. However, although Frasier was a great series, this is not the case for "The Exes". This series is daffy and worse: it is mostly not funny. Expand
