Bob Mahoney | Courtesy Judy Reyes and Susan Lucci star in the second-season premiere of Lifetimeís hit series "Devious Maids."
TV preview: ‘Devious Maids’ is hilarious
First Published Apr 16 2014 03:19 pm • Last Updated Apr 16 2014 04:16 pm

Here’s a radical TV thought — "Devious Maids" might be better than writer/producer Marc Cherry’s previous series, "Desperate Housewives." The two shows are very similar, with large casts and lots of plotlines centering on murder. But Cherry learned from the mistakes he made on "Housewives," so the plotting is better on "Maids." And it’s hilarious.
