13 Times ABC Show Titles Made Us Say WTF

Courteney Cox, John Cho

What's in a name? A lot when it comes to show titles. Naming a show isn't easy. You want to be brief but convey what the show is about, catchy but not cliché, original but not too out-there, inviting but not alienating. The last one sounds like a no-brainer, but tell that to ABC. For a network nicknamed the Alphabet, it has been the worst title offender in recent years. (But hey, they are into irony.)

OK, so I am really not ...

Question: OK, so I am really not feeling Cashmere Mafia or Lipstick Jungle. Do I need to cancel my season passes on these two, or should I give them another shot?

Answer: Cancel Cashmere, but let Lipstick linger a few more weeks. Or at the very least through tomorrow's episode, which features both a rollicking guest turn by Lorraine Bracco and an adulterous Kim Raver having sex with a half-naked Robert Buckley. Speaking of the latter, next week the jig is nearly up when they do it on the floor above her magazine's photo shoot. And let's just say there's a window up there. A big window.

We watched the first Cashmere ...

Question: We watched the first Cashmere Mafia and were appalled! Shouldn't someone in this show be likable? Watchable, at least? I was even more shocked when I looked up the cast online. No surprise with Lucy Liu, always interesting, but a bit too much shtick. Miranda Otto! She was so hot in Lord of the Rings, but here.... eh. Give her a sword and breastplate, please. Bonnie Somerville: a singer. Should have been a bold move, but comes off so-so. Frances O'Connor: much more interesting in Bedazzled. So four capable women leading a show... and it is unwatchable. Last night I had the TV muted and was reading something when I noticed this show was on. Watching some of it, I found I liked it better with the sound off. I could enjoy the beautiful women and the pricey outfits without the manic pace and storyline to get in the way. Answer: And wait till you get a load of NBC's equally dreadful Lipstick Jungle next week. (As I joke in an upcoming review, I'm personally holding out for Mascara read more

I watched the first couple of ...

Question: I watched the first couple of episodes of Cashmere Mafia, primarily in a desperate attempt to find new quality programming that would fill the void created by the writers' strike. New, yes. Quality, no. Unfortunately, I came to a similar conclusion that you expressed in your review: It was Sex and the City without the chemistry or substance. It only took about 15 minutes of the pilot to figure that out, but I wanted to give the show a fair shake, especially since it had some great actresses playing the main characters, like Miranda Otto, and, as I said, I'm somewhat desperate for something new. Now that the major networks have aired most of their "due-to-the-strike" season finales, it's a shame this is the kind of programming we've got left to watch. Thankfully we still have some new quality programming to look forward to, such as Law & Order, Monk and Lost (of course, with the exception of Monk, they will all likely be unplanned short seasons, too). Since the strike has ... read more

Jeers: Cashmere Mafia's Not-So-Hot Somerville

Bonnie Somerville by Andrew Eccles/ABC

Jeers to Bonnie Somerville for being the weak link in ABC's new Cashmere Mafia. Lucy Liu's got star power, and foreign imports Frances O'Connor and Mirando Otto can actually, you know, act. With her steamroller line readings and lack of charisma, bland bombshell Somerville (who's never made much of an impression, despite roles on Friends and NYPD Blue) can't even make her same-sex subplot interesting. She's the Fredo of this Mafia.• Read and react to Bruce's opinions on American Idol's new season, CSI: Miami's Elizabeth Berkley and more!• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on or in TV Guide magazine! read more
