Many People Trusted the B— in Apartment 23

Last night, almost 7 million people learned what the “B” stands for in the title Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23 (it’s bee, oddly enough). With a 2.9 rating for 18-49 year olds, the show premiered to about as many people as Happy Endings usually brings in. These are good numbers, matching those of undeniable hit New Girl and trouncing any of the NBC comedies, including very sadly Best Friends Forever, which was down 25% to a dangerously low 0.9 for 18-49. Considering the monster lead-in that is Modern Family, however, this is hardly a slamdunk for renewal. We’ll see if the numbers hold up for next week's episode, in which that pesky bee finally stings that really pretty bitch in Apartment 23.

Were you any of the 7 million? What did you think?

    Without getting too spoiler-y, I thought we did a whiplash-inducing 180 from "my roommate's a selfish thieving bitch" to "I think we're going to be BFF's" in a space of 22 minutes!

    James Van Der Beek as James Van Der Beek was charmingly hilarious. I only watched probably the first 15 minutes but I got the feeling that there was definitely strong writing and more than competent actors who could bring it to life.

    I LOVE Don't Trust The B. I know I'm judging only on the premiere, but might be my favorite new sitcom of the 2011-2012 season. I hope it gets renewed!

    Loved it. I think BFF's would do better if it were on ABC. NBC is a wasteland for any show these days.

    The show wasn't bad, but the Dawson made it awesome. Without him it wouldn't be as good.
