Jerry O'Connell and Niecy Nash costar in a sitcom set in a sexy boutique hotel. He's the general manager, and something of a lady-killer. She's head of human resources, and something of a mother hen—always after him to behave. Reno 911! alumna Nash is a strong comic actress—when she enters a scene, she owns it—but her style doesn't play all that well against O'Connell's. He marches in on long legs and fires off his lines like a soldier sent into battle with the command to get huge laughs. It doesn't work. The show could just as easily be called Don't Bother.
