'I Hate My Teenage Daughter' (Wed., 9:30PM ET on FOX) has been one of the worst-reviewed shows of the season, and yet FOX gave it easily their best time slot for its first several episodes. Coming out of 'The X Factor,' it's certain that plenty of people will at least sample the sitcom. But will they agree with the critics?
Our own Maureen Ryan called out the show for its incessant meanness to the two leads, which is entirely deserved, but I wasn't so quick to say there isn't hope for the show in the future. Yes, it needs to make some serious changes if people are going to want to watch, and that is the key phrase.
