Thursday on TV: 'Undateable' is underwhelming
The new sitcom Undateable (8 and 8:30 p.m., NBC//Ch. 5) comes to us from some very funny writers (the folks behind "Scrubs"). Its stars are a bunch of funny standup comedians, including Chris D'Elia, Brent Morin, Ron Funches and Rick Glassman."
And yet, somehow, it never comes together. This sitcom about guys who aren't good at relationships isn't really ... good.
It's not awful. But it's sort of ... meh.
