Accidentally on Purpose

accidentally-on-purpose4-300x240I had the opportunity to review a  new show that is coming to CBS this fall. It is called Accidentally on Purpose.  It's is a comedy starring Golden Globe Award winner Jenna Elfman as Billie, a single woman who finds herself "accidentally" pregnant after a one-night stand with a much younger guy. She then decides she wants to not only keep the baby... She wants the man as well!!
A newspaper film critic, Billie is barely surviving a humiliating breakup with her charming boss, James (Grant Show), who's still trying to resume their relationship.  Suddenly expecting a child with her "boy toy," Zack (Jon Foster), Billie and Zack make an arrangement: to live together platonically. Billie's party girl best friend Olivia (Ashley Jensen), and Abby (Lennon Parham), her conventional, younger married sister, eagerly look forward to the new addition and offer their own brands of advice and encouragement.  But when Zack and his freeloading friends, including Davis (Nicolas Wright), start to turn her place into a frat house, Billie isn't sure if she's living with a boyfriend, a roommate, or if she just has another child to raise.

I thought the 1st episode was really funny. I was pleasantly surprised because usually  Jenna Elfman bugs me.  You can catch the  Season Premiere of Accidentally on Purpose on CBS, Monday, Sept. 21 8:30pm ET/PT.
