Rob! (CBS) - Series Premiere: Synopsis and Review

Source

On January 12 the new comedy series ‘Rob!’ premiered on CBS. The show is created and written by Rob Schneider, who also plays the lead role. Rob is a life-long bachelor who ran into a woman at the mall. Six weeks later, they return home married from a trip to Las Vegas. His wife, Maggie, comes from a tight-knit Mexican family, and that is not quite what Rob is used to. Maggies family isn’t a big fan of Rob, and of course every time Rob tries to do something nice it blows up in his face.

After seeing the preview it seemed that ‘Rob!’ was going to be the worst show of the entire 2011-2012 TV season, and that is quite an achievement with ‘I Hate My Teenage Daughter’ and ‘How To Be A Gentleman’ competing for that title too. After watching the series premiere, that point of view hasn’t really changed. However, ‘Rob!’ won’t be able to compete with those other two shows, they are in fact quite a lot worse. Apart from a few funny moments the show consisted of one horrible joke after the other. Most so-called funny moments were very predictable and lacked funniness all together. As far as I’m concerned, ‘Rob!’ can be cancelled immediately, and it would surprise me if it’d last long.

I just couldn't bother to watch, the preview looks to be too much as it is.

I agree with Alecia. Rob! looks like it is going to be terrible. The whole 'I married into a different ethnicity' thing has been way done by now. Rob Schneider isn't even funny in his movies (Have you seen Grown Up's?, It's awful).

Cheech Marin probably has a zing or two, but he's not particularly funny either.

I give it ten episodes (or however have already been paid for and filmed) and it'll be gone.

I agree with both of you, the preview didn't look very promising. I hoped the episode would be better, but it wasn't.

I believe eight episode were ordered, I don't think more episode will be ordered, even though the ratings weren't half that bad.
