Rant incoming! Why do networks insist on having the worst names for shows? Trophy Wife as a name just irks me. It is epic levels of bad. Not the show. The show itself is actually funny and engaging. I have never given Malin Ackerman much thought as an actress, but she won me over by the end of the pilot. Bradley Whitford has basically patented the smart-sarcastic-but-so darn-loveable thing he did so well in The West Wing. After watching the pilot, I am looking forward to seeing more! You can watch a trailer for the show below if you are curious.
Trophy Wife airs on ABC on Tuesdays at 8:30.
