Cheers + Friends = Unhappy “Hour”

Happy Hour” premieres tonight on Fox, and it’s not worth rushing home for. Get some more work done, or tune into a game, or just enjoy whatever real-life Happy Hour you’re coming from. This show’s a dud, at least at first review.

“Happy Hour” tries to be “Cheers” and “Friends” at the same time, and it is neither. I don’t remember seeing the first episodes of those sitcoms, but I sure remember the characters as being more endearing than Henry, Heather, Larry, Brad, Tina, and Amanda. Perhaps time will help and their chemistry will improve, but I’m not raising a glass to this show yet.

The premise is awesome, though: “Whatever happens on the way to Happy Hour, around 4 o’clock, there will always be an excuse to raise a glass.” Fellowship and relationships among friends is at the heart of the spiritual journey and Jesus himself enjoyed reclining at the table with his friends, or turning plain water into the best wine anyone had had.

But “Happy Hour” will need that kind of miracle to succeed over the long-haul.
