Stars: Donald Faison, Wayne Knight, David Alan Basche, Kristen Johnston, Kelly Stables

The Exes is like the less interesting and less superficially appealing version of Fox's New Girl. Their plots are similar: Here, David Alan Basche plays a divorced guy who moves in with two single male roommates, and supposed hilarity ensues.

On New Girl, though, hilarity actually does ensue—The Exes, unfortunately, subjects veterans of better sitcoms (Scrubs alum Donald Faison, Seinfeld favorite Wayne Knight) to hackneyed scripts, lifeless one-liners, and a drone of a leading man (Basche). We'll stick to the spunky and sexy one-two combo of New Girl's Zooey Deschanel and Hannah Simone.
