Question: I don't know why everyone is giving [CBS's new John Goodman comedy] Center of the Universe such bad reviews. From the commercials I've seen, I'm looking forward to watching it. — Brenda

Ausiello: Take it from someone who's seen the entire pilot — and (just barely) lived to tell the tale: It's awful with a capital A-W. If I've learned anything during my 32 years obsessing over TV, it's that a decent promo campaign does not a good show make. Consider yourself warned. Again.
