ABC Family launched Beverly Hills Nannies last night and as expected, it fits with the family-friendly nature of their network... which means that while Beverly Hills is in the title, none of the shenanigans of the Real Housewives or the likes of Audrina are happening here. Or at least none of the public fights and embarrassing behavior are on display. Instead, its about well-dressed young men and women who have the job of being nanny to the rich (and sometimes famous) and how they occasionally have to pick up poop after animals or learn about vegan diets. It's all very innocuous, and terribly dull.
It hasn't been the smoothest start for Community this season, but Annie and Abed are here to tell fans to keep the faith. Alison Brie and Danny Pudi hopped on the horn for a conference call with reporters the other day to discuss the Dan Harmon-free Year 4, tease upcoming episodes ("I'm really excited for our Christmas episode, which is Hitchcock-inspired, and the finale, which is really just made for the fans," says Brie) and reminisce about their favorite Greendale memories.
Time to put these animals back in their cages.
Thank goodness for our returning shows, because otherwise this would have been a tough TV summer. While Teen Wolf, Suits, True Blood and Breaking Bad have all delivered week after week, most of the new programming of the last few months has left a lot to be desired. Breaking Pointe was fun and we're oddly obsessed with the surreal Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, but too many other freshman series were underwhelming at best. Here's what let us down the most:
ABC's new Charlie's Angels isn't the worst remake that we've ever seen (we're still leaning towards Knight Rider for that dishonor), it's not exactly what you'd call Emmy-bait (though it isn't trying to be), it doesn't have the most attractive cast on TV (Vampire Diaries probably wins that one) and it definitely doesn't have the most kick-ass girl action scenes (we tip our hat to Nikita ), but with all that said, it's not the worst show to premiere this fall. It isn't even that bad when all is said and done. It's just that it falls in the unfortunate position of being average -- not great, not appallingly awful, just there. And unless it garners some Big Bang Theory-style ratings, it probably won't be there for long.
