Although Bingeworthy hosts Touré and Jessica Shaw could not agree on the overall quality of the new CBS sitcom 9JKL, the pair was in agreement on the Mark Feuerstein-starring CBS comedy’s limited appeal.
“It felt a little bit like, ‘We’re just going to air this show on the Upper East Side at 8:30 p.m., but it’s going to kill there because everyone there is going to love it,'” joked Shaw.
The co-hosts then spent several minutes going back and forth on whether the show is worth your time, with Jessica Shaw ultimately binging 9JKL and Touré deleting the show on account of it making him very uncomfortable and being “all the bad awkward.” Touré disliked that the sitcom’s biggest challenge is centered around overbearing parents (Linda Lavin and Elliott Gould).
You can decide for yourself by watching 9JKL at 8:30 p.m. ET on Mondays on CBS. Learn more about the backstory of the show here.
