I Hate My Teenage Daughter (FOX) by Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer

What is it ? :
It's a comedy about two mothers who are being mistreated by their teenage daughters. It was written by Sherry Bilsing and Ellen Kreamer, two Old Christine alums.

Good/Bad :

I Hate My Teenage Daughter is plain awful. Aside the fact that I didn't even smile once during these 52 pages, I despised each character more than the other. I don't have a teenage daughter but I'm pretty sure that I would lock her up if she turned out that bad. While the plot of the pilot is incredibly predictable, I Hate my Teenage Daughter does make a decent job at showing how tough raising teenagers can be but the show is more of a terrifying look at what our youth is turning out than a comedy. It scared me a hell of a lot more than it made me laugh (because it didn't) and the only thing I liked about it was that the comedy is only half an hour because another 50 pages of this poor excuse for a comedy would have probably put me asleep. I sincerely don't have one good thing to say about this new comedy and I hope none of you get the misfortune of seeing it. I Hate My Teenage Daughter is plain awful.

Will it make it ?
I seriously doubt it.

Will it work ?
Probably not.

Should it make it ?
Easily the worst pilot I've read this season.


  1. Why should I trust your comments? You can't even spell (or use spellcheck). I suggest you either go back to school before you attempt to criticize someone else's work or quit commenting because you're obviously not qualified.

  2. To the poster before me - why don't you cut this guy some slack? He clearly states under "who am I" that English is not his first language, so back off. If you don't like how he writes, then don't read his blog. It's his opinion, you don't have to be such a jackass. I was an English major and tend to be a "grammar-Nazi", but I also understand how complex our language can be. If I can understand the thesis of their piece, I don't care what else is going on. You need to remember that this is a blog, not a dissertation or something that has to be precise in its grammar. Lighten up.
