Sean Saves The World is a new throwback sitcom starring Sean Hayes as Sean, a divorced gay father who suddenly has his 14 year old daughter Ellie (Samantha Isler) with him all the time. Rounding out the main cast is his overbearing mother Lorna (Linda Lavin), his stuffy boss at an online retail company, Max (Thomas Lennon) and co-workers and friends Liz and Hunter (Megan Hilty and Echo Kellum).
BOTTOM LINE: There are many times that a sitcom pilot doesn't have it all together but I see enough pieces to believe the show could become a funny one. However, when the problem is the star and he's doing the shtick he's known for, I have real reservations about where this show is going. Even with a strong supporting cast, I'm not sure I can keep watching because I'm annoyed by Sean Hayes.
