Single mother sitcom
Stars: Sherri Shepherd (pictured), Malcolm-Jamal Warner
The concept: “The View’’ cohost plays a version of herself, a working single mother who wants to be an actress. The story begins after she separates from her cheating husband (Warner) and rejoins the dating world with her gal pals.
Our take: From “Suddenly Susan’’ to “Less Than Perfect,’’ Shepherd has been a natural in the punchy laugh-track sitcom environment. Her timing is impeccable. The material here, though, is ridden with clichéd sass, and the casting of Sherri’s friends is generic.
Alternate name: “View to a Nil’’
Grade: C (Oct. 5)
