Mr. Sunshine is A-Okay in My Book

I have a confession to make: I like Matthew Perry.

I didn't watch much of friends, but I think that Perry is a boffo dramatic actor; I enjoyed his turn in "Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip a lot, as well as other shots on other shows.

Finding out he's a self-deprecating abstinent drunk made him just that much better in my book.

But if he were doing a shit show, I'd admit it.

He ain't.

Mr. Sunshine, Wed. at 9:30 on ABC, ain't no shit show.

No laugh track. Some larger-than-life characters, but no "ovber-the-top" feel.

Funny, but not too.

I dig it.

Oh, yeah -- Perry created the show [or the idea] and exec produces. So he's invested.
