TV Tonight: "The Starter Wife"

TV Tonight: "The Starter Wife"

The more I see and read about "The Starter Wife," which has its special two-hour premiere tonight on USA, the more excited I get. The miniseries, based on the novel of the same name by Gigi Levangie Grazer, looks to be the perfect television equivalent of smart chick lit. If only I could pull my TV into the bathroom so I could watch while taking a bubble bath!

Debra Messing looks radiant in her return to TV, and the Chicago Tribune's Maureen Ryan — whom I find is almost never wrong about such matters — says the series goes down as smoothly as an ice cream sundae. I can't wait to see for myself what all the fuss is about. To check out a preview of the show,

I've got no desire to watch this. Oh, and that "It's My Life" cover makes me cringe. Debra does look really cute in the clip, though.

That picture of Debra is seriously scary. There is a such thing as too much Photoshop.

what's a miniseries? does that mean it's not a full blown series that will have seasons and stuff? like a short extended story telling? 'cause when i was watching the preview i was thinking: great story i hope that don't draw it out too far.
