Picks and Pans Review: A Whole New Ballgame
ABC (Mondays, 8:30 p.m. ET)
Corbin Bernsen plays a slugger for the Milwaukee Brewers who takes a job as a sportscaster for a local station. Our hunky, conceited renegade doesn't get along with the station's prissy general manager (Julia Campbell). In fact during their first encounter she avers, "May I just say that you are truly one of the most disgusting creatures I have ever met." Got a little Sam-and-Diane thing going on here, right? Well, Bernsen holds up his end of the bargain. But Campbell, who was also on last fall's rapidly canceled sitcom Blue Skies, is rather shrill. Stephen Tobolowsky, Richard Kind and John O'Hurley costar.
Unfortunately the jokes hit about .213. That's a little light to stick around in the majors for long.
