It's got potential, but things have got to change...
4 April 2005 | by john_perrySee all my reviews

Kirstie Alley is back, and bigger than ever. The results are somewhat mixed - Kirstie is hilarious and has no problems shamelessly poking fun at herself in a variety of different scenarios. However, the supporting cast (mainly her two assistants) stand around looking lost for most of the episode. When subplots emerge and the story focuses solely on their characters, I find myself impatiently waiting for the show to get back to what Kirstie's up to.

I almost stopped watching after the totally unfunny second episode (with Kid Rock), but luckily the show got better with subsequent episodes (the episode with Leah Remini was a hoot). It's hard to say if this show will last, but better writing and more interesting supporting characters will definitely help.
