Really enjoyed this. Laughed quite a few times. Does remind me of New Girl a lot.

The line Drew mentioned was my favorite haha.

Great reviews weren't enough to get viewers to check out Fox's Ben and Kate (4.2 million, 2.0 demo). Despite a special New Girl lead-in (2.7 demo), the sibling sitcom lost more than 25 percent of that audience.

Both Ben and Kate & the 8PM episode of New Girl got adjusted up .1, though.

I dunno. A 2.1 isn't a great start, but it's not the DOA number Mob Doctor pulled. Hopefully this at least sticks around for a full 22 episodes.\

On a side note, would anybody be opposed to starting a TV Ratings thread?

Yeah...but FOX seems really into developing a "Tuesday Night Comedy Block" around this, New Girl, Mindy and Raising Hope. They're definitely going to give it some time.

Throughout the pilot, I kept wondering if I should stick with it or not... I made it all the way through and enjoyed it... I think this show is gonna get better and better as it goes on.

The cold open of ep. 2 makes me want a full season order of this badly. Such a huge jump in quality already, I knew it wouldn't take much to see greatness here. 'I'm in Washington Square, feeling the moment, I'm slapping that clock.'

I tuned in when there was like 10 minutes left, but Lucy Punch had me cracking up. Gotta watch the whole episode on On Demand later.

Man, what an episode. I was laughing very hard almost the entire time, and the relationship being built between the siblings is very heartwarming and more importantly, organically platonic. There's no doubt in my mind people will be calling this TV's best new comedy in a few months.

I didn't much care for the pilot the first time I watched, but I've since viewed it again and enjoyed it, along with tonight's episode. Hope it gets a whole season, I think it fits in well with the rest of Fox's Tuesday lineup.
