WTF, no way! I loved her in The Starter Wife! Oh, well. Maybe they could have her make a guest appearance on Eric McCormack’s new show or something! That’d be funny. =)

Love her. She is so talented at being “over the top” and and can play vulnerable well, too. She is very charismatic and grabs your attention in any scene she is in. Loved her in The Wedding Date and Will and Grace.

The starter wife is one of my favourite shows on TV. It is smart, whitty and modern. I Loved it . For shame.

The movie was great- The show Sucked!

I never saw the show because I thought the mini series sucked. I thought her acting was extremely mediocre, which is odd, usually she’s great.

I didn’t see the show but it sounds like a funny and realistic premise. Perhaps they can make a TV movie about it. Of course there are lots of reality shows about housewives now anyways.

Terrible show—some good actors, but horrible writing, story lines….the worst. Good riddance.

I liked this show. I’m surprised it’s being cancelled. Although I don’t know what good ratings are for USA (cable channel). There are shows on network tv that have lower ratings that are still on. The season finale wasn’t satisfying. I want to know what happened to Joan.

I never watched thr show..was it good??

Oh man. I loved that show. And i dissagree the last episode didn’t clear everything up….geez…

I’m really bummed… I didn’t miss an episode, even if I DVR’d it on occasion… I did watch eventually.

It was funny and clever… very entertaining, and Messing was wonderful.
