32323, The problem is Bateman's character...

If they had gotten rid of Bateman and made Portia's character the main person, then it would have worked better. She would have had to juggle everything (including her kid and husband) but she wouldn't have been the "good guy" as she still would have been a flawed character. I like Jason Bateman on the show but his character isn't really necessary.

As it is, it's like if The Office centered around a straight arrow office manager rather than Ricky Gervais.
