Television right now is a woman's world. After years of being dominated by men, it's refreshing to see female-based, female-created shows succeeding. The five new comedies that have already been picked up for a full season (New Girl, 2 Broke Girls, Whitney, Up All Night and Suburgatory) all have strong female leads and are all created or co-created by women.
So already, the new ABC sitcom Man Up (Tuesdays at 8:30pm) seems
woefully out of place this season. The fact that it's painfully unfunny
and embarrassingly uncomfortable doesn't help.
