Excerpt from Pilots Build, Lose Buzz for 2004-05 Schedule (05/10/04, The Futon Critic)

ABC
COMEDIES - Rodney Carrington, John Stamos and Jessica Simpson's half-hours seem to be the strongest contenders, as does the Colin Hanks-led "News to Me" and Jennifer Love Hewitt's untitled comedy. On the flip side, "Earthquake" doesn't seem to be getting any traction, while "The Furst Family," "Hot Homma," "I Married Sofia," "Plan B," "The Savages," "We Are Family," "Thank God It's Monday" and Lewis Black's project remain under the radar.
