JoAnna Garcia plays a smart Yale grad hired to tutor twin heiresses (Lucy Kate Hale and Ashley Newbrough) in Palm Beach. Their grandmother (Anne Archer) wants their grades up to get them into Duke. I hope episode 2 brings early-admission letters to an out-of-state, far-away campus.

Garcia is very cute—vulnerable and twerpy—but the premise is both trite and tiring. What viewer, other than perhaps Paris Hilton, would want to watch and wait for fabulously wealthy girls to get motivated?
