18 to Life
How do people not like this? It's charming! And adorable! And Canadian! I just caught up on the first four episodes, and while I don't think it's a show I'll be writing about every week or anything, I definitely enjoyed it. The two leads are sympathetic and likeable and act their age, and they also do a good job of playing people who have known each other since childhood. Sure, they "getting married on a dare" thing is silly, but they clearly care about each other, and I found myself really rooting for them to make the unlikely marriage work. (And as a bonus, their families are both HILARIOUS and real, somehow, all at once.)
Update: After I wrote this but before I posted it, the CW pulled the show from its schedule. Sigh. I'm hoping for DVD...

TV Promo: 18 to Life
I love the CW. Love. I will try basically any non-reality program they come out with at this point. And this one sounds like it has potential: it's a Canadian import about 18-year-old neighbors who run off and get married, and their families who have to deal with it. As I've said a million times, I don't tend to be wild about sitcoms, but I'll give this a try.
