I just watched the new NBC show Teachers. It was truly as bad as I'd heard it was. It's not that I didn't like it because it wasn't realistic, or because it portrayed teachers in a bad light, or because the characters are unattractive. No, I didn't like it because it wasn't funny.
Seriously, I laughed only one time. "You have lobster on Fridays?" "Sometimes we throw in scampi." It was so unexpected that I chuckled. But the rest of the show? Yuck.
And it's by the writers of Scrubs? They obviously used up all their talent writing Scrubs, a truly funny show. Teachers? No way. I can't imagine this will last a season.
