This new comedy starts today in the U.S.

[b:f8a4abade4]Show Summary[/b:f8a4abade4]

A San Francisco newspaper film critic becomes pregnant after a hookup with a much younger man and together they raise a non-traditional family. Golden Globe Award winner Jenna Elfman (Dharma & Greg) plays Billie, who after a hard breakup with her boss, James (Melrose Place's Grant Show) then gets knocked up by Zack (Windfall's Jon Foster). They agree on an unconventional arrangement to raise the child and live together platonically. But when Zack's friends turn her place into a frat house, Billie isn't sure that the plan can work out.

Completing the cast are Ashley Jensen (Ugly Betty) as Billie's best friend Olivia, Lennon Parham as her younger married sister Abby, and Nicolas Wright as Davis, one of Zack's freeloading friends. Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Mary F. Pols, Accidentally on Purpose is executive-produced by Lloyd Braun, Gail Berman, Gene Stein, and Claudia Lonow with CBS Television Studios.

Seriously, do not bother.

Here is one of the many scathing reviews I have read

I'm still going to see this because I've been a fan of Jenna Elfman for many years.
Download almost finished in 30 seconds. :P

I actually really enjoyed this and found myself laughing quite a bit throughout the episode. Definitely keeping this on the download list.

I enjoyed it too, and I'm not a big fan of Jenna Elfman.

I actually really loved this.

I am not sure it has long term potential, but the pilot was enjoyable and had lots of humour.

Jenna Elfman and Ashley Jensen were great.

Not really a Jenna fan although I'm enjoying Dharma & Greg on 10 at the moment.

May give it a go but yeh going by the promos it doesn't look that good.

Looked a little like a reworking of Dharma and Greg to me, from the ads didn't watch it :!:
