The more they flaunt their devil-may-care attitude, the less I care to watch the characters on this new sitcom. It's like a dumbed-down Sex and the City.
Based on a series of books by Cameron Turtle, The Bad Girl's Guide features three hot friends who party hard and prove how hip they are by calling one another bitches. JJ (Jenny McCarthy, starring in her first series since Jenny in the late '90s), shares an apartment with Sarah (Christina Moore) and an office with Holly (Marcelle Larice), her colleague at an ad agency. "Work is just what we do to pay for going out," JJ explained in the May 24 opener. Unable to dream up a concept for a new account, she and Holly got stoned to stoke their creativity. See? Bad girls know how to combine business with pleasure. Later, they kicked back and tuned in America's Next Top Model (on UPN, coincidentally). But lest you think JJ is too cool, a future episode has her crying on a strong man's shoulder. When the girl's less bad, the show is no better.
