The Arizona Republic - - MONEY -

(Tues­days, 9:30 ET/PT)

In a weak sea­son for new sit­coms, this amus­ing ABC ef­fort stands out on the strength of its ap­peal­ing cast, led by Bran­don Micheal Hall as a young rap­per­turned-ac­ci­den­tal-mayor and Yvette Ni­cole Brown as his mom. The premise (he runs for of­fice as a pub­lic­ity stunt and is dis­mayed when he wins) comes across as silly, even with its cur­rent-events over­tones, but that may not mat­ter. The show it­self seems to turn on the re­la­tion­ship be­tween the young mayor and his mom, and that looks rock-solid.
