Each season, I fear the traditional sitcom is growing closer to extinction. If Do Not Disturb is the best FOX has, then my fear is coming true. It makes last season’s decent Back to You look like a work of Mensa, by comparison.
The show has a talented cast headed by Jerry O’Connell and Niecy Nash, but the pilot barely held my attention. It’s a workplace comedy set in one of New York’s City’s top hotels, where predictable workplace hijinks ensue. I’ve only seen one episode, but that was enough to tell me that this show isn’t for me, especially with such a crowded TV schedule this year.
If you’re a fan of Nash and O’Connell you may want to watch for them, but little else is memorable. I doubt Do Not Disturb will last long. It’s this season’s Cavemen.
