Mr. Sunshine Mr. Sunshine

If you hadn't heard — the screams of those irate Cougar Town fans were quite loud — Matthew Perry returned to series TV last night on Mr. Sunshine. And since almost every outlet known to man has run a review of his new sitcom about the misanthropic manager of a sports entertainment arena (mostly unkind assessments of the reworked pilot, the forced writing and the abusive decision to squander Allison Janney as his pill-popping boss), we decided to peek into your tweets about the show to see if there was anyone who liked this thing. And it turns out, there was!

@strangis
So far I'm kind if liking #mrsunshine. At least #matthewperry is fun to look at. Lots of Chandlerisms though.

@lisanoel03
Some1 tell me I am not the only 1 LOL at Matthew Perry on #MrSunshine & thinking he needs something for the bags under his eyes #moresleep?

@jcasabona
I'm really digging Mr. Sunshine so far. I think it's a keeper. #mrsunshine

@SuzieMaxxedOut
Allison Janey makes #mrsunshine

@JLothian
If #MrSunshine makes it I think it'll be because of Allison Janney.

@cdevaney
OMFG. Alison Janney just threw a small child at a clown with an ax. I actually LOL'ed. Also, I may be the only one tweeting #MrSunshine.

Nice 2 see Mathew Perry, but have 2 admit the nicest thing about #MrSunshine was turning the TV off after so I don't see #OfftheMap at all;)

Of course, some of you were less than friendly about the former Friends' first network comedy since the Bings and company bid us adieu. In fact, some of you were total Gunthers!

@jillianbowe
Yeah #MrSunshine u suck. Going to wait for my #SVU to come on

@YaGottaBKiddnMe
Alison Janney's character on #MrSunshine is idiotic. And Matthew Perry is trying to hard. Hurley's rockin' it tho.

@krwinston
I never thought a show could make me miss #cougartown, but #MrSunshine has achieved this ignoble goal. Sucktastic is the only word for it.

@SmallWaldo
I tried to watch #mrsunshine. Cannot watch A. Janney play a drugged up, bigoted, stupid character. Not after seeing her as C.J. Cregg.

And finally, there were the jokers...

@HoustonHomo
Sad to see how far CJ Cregg has fallen after the Bartlett Admin. Nice to see Chandler Bing moving up though #WestWing #MrSunshine #Friends

@DanArmstrong
Glad to see that Hurley is still wearing a Dharma jumpsuit on his new TV show. #mrsunshine

So, where do you stand? Did Mr. Sunshine make your night? Or will it never darken your screen again?
