THE FINAL WORD: Patricia Heaton has had two long-running sitcoms that each ran for nine seasons. It's a safe bet she could go for the hat trick especially given it's a clever concept and it seems like a custom-made CBS series.

THE FINAL WORD: If audiences can get past some of the creepier elements of the series they may find themselves wanting to come back week-after-week. This is a strong cast and has the truly talented co-creators of "The Good Wife" guiding the action - it's definitely one to keep an eye on.
