Watch, Pass, TiVo, or Rent: Kath and Kim


I've been curious for a while now to see NBC's Kath and Kim, an adaptation of an Australian comedy series about a dysfunctional mother and daughter starring Molly Shannon and Selma Blair. I thought the first clips were pretty hilarious, but the show's switched directors since then, and the tone of the premiere episode is pretty different from what I was expecting.

You'll get to see it for yourself tonight at 8:30 p.m., and I'm wondering if it's one you're planning to check out — or one you'll skip altogether. Since this is the first time I've done a Watch, Pass, TiVo, or Rent poll for TV, a quick definition of terms: "Watch" means you're rushing home tonight to watch it, "Pass" is pretty self-explanatory, "TiVo" means you'll record it and maybe watch it later, and "Rent" means that you'd consider picking up the DVDs sometime down the line. So, have at it! Where does Kath and Kim fall for you?
