The Laugh Button guide to new Fall 2012 television comedies
Malibu Country – ABC
Premieres Tuesday, November 2nd at 8:30pm
Malibu Country is another TV show that features Reba McEntire as a character named “Reba” (we’re seeing a trend here). A country superstar who looks for a fresh start after she leaves her husband who was caught cheating. She moves to California with her kids and mother and wacky hijinks are upon us. Rounding out the case includes some people you might recognize like Sara Rue (Rules of Engagement), who jumped ship from the pilot of Guys with Kids to Country after it was picked up, as well as Lily Tomlin and Jai Rodriguez (Queer Eye For The Straight Guy).
Our Verdict: Reba’s been in the sitcom world before and we didn’t watch that and will probably do the same here. The name recognition and promise that she might sing a song or two will probably bring in fans every week.
