1600 Penn: "Putting Out Fires": IGN Review

Advance Review: With 1600 Penn, show creators Jason Winer (Modern Family), Josh Gad (star of Broadway’s The Book of Mormon) and Jon Lovett (former White House speechwriter) hope to combine the sharp humor of Modern Family with the “inside baseball” look at the White House that The West Wing provided.

Unfortunately, the final result is that neither goal is fully achieved. At the end of the day, 1600 Penn is standard half-hour fare, trussed up in a heightened circumstance (1600 Penn, TV) 6/10

I myself didn't watch it but I saw the previews and I really wasn't impressed with them. I don't give it a lot of time if it doesn't change it's time slot.
