Premise: A small-town guy moves to Chicago, has his heart broken and moves in with a modern day Dean Martin who vows to remake him.
First Impressions: If you like your comedy big and a little coarse (at least three utterances of the word "balls" in one scene), then this is a show you'll probably enjoy. If not, well. ... The center of the show, a wannabe Rat Packer teaching his uptight, down-on-his-luck friend to enjoy life, might be worth something. But there's a fair amount of material here that feels extraneous too. Some trimming might be a good idea.
