Good Buzz for ABC's "Miss Guided" -- Tonight

ABC's giving its new comedy Miss Guided a nice introductory spot tonight after Dancing with the Stars -- sure, it's at 10:30pm, and not anything close to where it will normally be airing, which is Thursdays at 8pm, but it's better than nothing, right?

I've watched a few clips and it seems bright and peppy and star Judy Greer seems the same. The premise is a high school nerd comes back to her high school to work as a guidance counselor, which is as good a storyline as any. The show has a large line-up of producers, including actor Ashton Kutcher who shows up in at least one episode.

I know I'm not making this sound too great, but the clip was cute and TV seems to be a haven right now for female comedic talent. Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Wanda Sykes...it's good to be a funny girl these days, and Judy Greer, who's done TV time on Arrested Development and others, and in movies like 27 Dresses, has a cute way about her and an attractive mobile face that puts everything over just right.

For heaven's sakes, if you're watching Dancing with the Stars you've simply GOT to hang around for Miss Guided and give Ms. Greer a chance to shine! If you're not watching DwtS, it's going to take a mighty will to change the channel, but give this amusing little show a chance and then check it out again on Thursday. Also, check out the show's website here!
