Picks and Pans Review: Something So Right

ABC (Tues., March 3, 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. ET)

Dropped by NBC after one season, this family-merger sitcom bounces back on ABC with its modern attitude intact. The wife and hubby are not a bland Brady Bunch widow and widower but Mel Harris (thirtysomething) as a twice-divorced mother of two and Jere Burns (Dear John) as a once-divorced father of one. Harris's exes (Barry Jenner and Michael Milhoan) and Burns's former spouse (Christine Dun-ford)—all single—attach themselves to the family; in fact, Jenner and Dun-ford show signs of attaching themselves to each other in one of two episodes airing March 3 (regular slot is Tuesdays at 8:30 as of March 10). The situations can get awfully silly (beware those exploding jars of barbecue sauce on March 3), but Burns is so right as a fellow inclined to smart remarks and dumb decisions.
