Most seasons, there is one new series that rushes to beat all the others onto the scene, and usually it rushes off the scene just as quickly. That would be a deserving fate for ONE ON ONE, a new “urban” comedy on the WB. The concept is the “suddenly I have kids to take care of” plot that has been surfacing a lot in recent years. In this case, it’s a divorced dad whos eex-wife leaves the country, suddenly leaving him as the primary caregiver (and what a monkey wrench it tosses in the gears of his hyperactive love life!)
The characters don’t take time to be characters, they spend their lives being non-stop insult machines, and not particularly amusing ones at that. They’re not intriguing, they’re not involving, and they’re not amusing. Skip this one.
