Accidentally On Purpose: New to CBS This Fall (Review)

CBS is adding a new show to their Fall Lineup, and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE will premier Monday, September 21st, at 8:30pm.

Just what is ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE about? Glad you asked!

From the CBS website:

ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE 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, and decides to keep the baby… and the guy. 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. Lloyd Braun, Gail Berman, Gene Stein and Claudia Lonow are the executive producers for CBS Television Studios. Pamela Fryman directed the pilot.

I have been a fan of Jenna Elfman’s from back in the Dharma and Greg days. So, when I was offered the chance to catch the pilot episode of her new show, ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE, how could I turn it down?

The show was freaking hilarious. A little more raunchy than a I prefer, but not like some shows on tv right now. The cast really worked well together, and Jenna Elfman made an excellent “cougar.”

Jenna Elfman is known for being a little on the kooky side. Funny, witty, and downright childish at times. It’s like the role of Billie was written with her in mind. There’s not one other actress that could pull this off the way she does. And the rest of the cast is just as fabulous. They all work so well together, and will make you laugh so hard your side will split.

Overall, the show is fantastic, and I will definitely be tuning in each week to find out how Billie handles life with an unexpected pregnancy – and a few unexpected roomates. This is going to be fun!

Here’s what’s coming up on ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE:

Remember, ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE starts Monday, September 21st at 8:30pm on CBS. Be sure to watch!
