Saget's character is a reclusive guy who just wants to be completely left alone by society, while Stevenson will play... his wife. No more info was given on her, but who wants to hear about the old ball and chain, am I right, people?! Anyway, Stevenson has always been careful and smart about her project choices in the past, so I'm sure her character is very compelling (and probably bitchy as hell, given her track record). I don't know about you, but the idea of the guy who formerly played the perfect father archetype playing some suburbia-hating hermit is interesting to me (plus, Wikipedia calls the show the "male Roseanne" - OMG!).
My only worry (besides the CW's incompetence when it comes to sitcoms) is that Saget probably can't match Stevenson's acting chops, and since they're playing a married couple who don't like talking to other people, they're probably going to have a lot of one-on-one scenes. These scenes could be pretty painful, but then again, is Roseanne Barr as good an actor as John Goodman? Of course not, but they definitely made it work on the "female Roseanne." If anyone can find a way, it's Saget.
