New Reba Show ‘Malibu Country’ Friday Nights at 8:30
After a successful six-year run on the WB/CW Networks with “Reba,” ABC is counting on Reba McEntire to duplicate her winning formula with a new star studded Friday night sitcom, “Malibu Country.”
Reviewers that previewed Malibu Country rave reviews, including Entertainment Weekly, known to be a tough critic, seemed to really enjoy the show.
The premise of the show has Reba once again playing a single mom. This time she moves in with her straight-talking mom, played by the comedy icon, Lily Tomlin (“Laugh In”). The show features two teens and the always great Sara Rue (“Less Than Perfect”, “Rules of Engagement”), as a ditsy neighbor. Jai Rodriguez (“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”) rounds out the cast as her agent’s sassy assistant.
I haven’t seen the show, but it sounds much like her previous sitcom. How can you go wrong with a winning formula that features the talents of Reba, Lily and Sara. I know what I will be doing on Friday nights at 8:30. Watch it, record it and I’m sure you will enjoy it.
Here’s a quick preview for you. Be sure to let us know what you think of Reba’s new show.
