Oh, ABC. How adorable that you felt that your sad new sitcom Man Up! (8:30/7:30c) deserves an exclamation point. As in, maybe: Yikes, this sucks! The network describes this latest "comedy" about male insecurities as being "in the vein of The Hangover." Only in the vein of people who watch The Hangover and think: Boy, I wish I could be that funny.
Emily VanCamp, Tim Allen, Jane Levy
Suburgatory's Jane Levy has an awesome life, Man Up! is not the Chris Moynihan show and that isn't all of Emily VanCamp's real body on the hot Revenge promo all over the country.
ABC released previews from 11 of its new series for the 2011-12 TV season, including a new drama from Shonda Rhimes, the remake of Charlie's Angels and Tim Allen's return to TV.
