Yeah they're airing the first 5 episodes back to back next week, then the show will return to a once a week format the week after.

i know the Sneak Peek Week.

Anyways, allot of Life Time are very upset that Reba & Still Standing are being replaced by her Weekdays now, as a fan of Reba from 2001-2007 i am not upset because i have seen all the episodes and i have season 1-4 on dvd so i am not really mad because they show the episodes in chronigliocal order all the time and now or days it gets old and thank god that Nicole Sullivan show is a New Episode Weekly thing because Still Standing and Reba been on for a while and i think they need to replace it and Rita Rocks is just the thing.

I understand all the Reba fans are upset but imagine all the fans of the "Golden Girls" would feel if "Rita Rocks" pre-empts the show.

Rita Rocks is getting favorable reviews from the TV critics even the critics who don't like the series thinks that Nicole and Tisha are very good in the show.

Also Rita and the second season of Frank TV got reviewed on Entertainment Weekly.

Rita Rocks got a B- and Frank Tv got a D but they admitted that Frank can do a good parody of the Donny and Marie show.

This sucks right now because the show isn't being broadcasted on a Canadian network up here, and because a lot of Lifetime shows often don't get play up here, or they get thrown onto a network in such secrecy that you don't know what network they were on, or even when they aired until the show is done. I'll try to watch it on the site but I have a feeling that they won't play too well since the first episode that I tried to watch kept cutting out in the middle of parts 2 and 3.

Ok, episode 1 is finally playing through, and after seeing all of the first episode I must say that this is officially my favourite new show of the season! It's funny, and though it seems like a girl show, it's really not. I'm telling all of you, watch it, to me it has more potential than any other new show on television right now, and I'm not just saying this because Nicole S is involved.

I just finished watching it broadcast.

I have to say, I enjoyed it. It's a very cute show.

Nicole Sullivan and Tisha Campbell are the perfect duo, and the unemployed neighbor next door adds for some extra laughs, as well as "the boyfriend" (Holly's boyfriend) who's name I don't remember. Nicole and Tisha really stole the show, for me. My favorite moment would have to be Nicole and Tisha's heart-to-heart conversation, as well as the sung performance at the end. And might I add, they sing very well!

Will I be watching this in the future? You bet. It's much better than the other sitcoms Nicole has been in (Talk to me, Hot Properties), and for once I feel she's been given the chance she needs to take her show into mainstream.

Three cheers for Nicole Sullivan and Tisha Campbell.

Second episode just aired. I enjoyed this episode more than the pilot. I don't know how much time elapsed between the pilot and the writing of the second episode, but I liked this episode much better. It feels as if the writers are finding their niche. And quite fast, might I add.

Nicole did great as usual. Tisha Campbell didn't get a lot of screen time this episode. Raviv Ullman, Holly's boyfriend, is becoming my new favorite character (other than Nicole). The constant involvement in the lives of his girlfriend's parents make for frequent laughs. He and Richard Ruccolo together make a great team on camera as they both play off each other well.

And that's the end of my reviews. I'm not going to write a mini-review for every episode. Just a little synopsis for those who are unable to see this show. To put it simply, it's a good show heading in the write direction.

I've only seen the first few minutes of the show, but damn, Tisha Campbell can't even get her own starring role?

Well, I managed to watch the first episode on the website with the help of a proxy, and the second episode I found on a torrent...

Pretty cool show so far, actually... It's so nice to see Nicole again, it's been a while, with the long blonde hair she looks real good for her age...

I hope the torrent releases are gonna keep coming for the show, because watching on the website is PAINFUL thru the proxy for me.

I know how you feel about the website HiVolt. Also, you have to wait a while because the recently added episodes always cut out half way through. I would do that torrent thing but I don't really know what that is, but it sounds bad.

I watched the 3rd episode today, I found a high definition 720p torrent of episode 2 & 3. I hope they keep releasing them like that.

Nicole looks way prettier in HD.

BTW, I think she fits this role very well.

The 6 episodes aired until now are available on torrents, if any of you missed them and cant stand the stupid website to watch them on (or can't, because you don't live in the US).
