Yeah, but she's the female lead. Lead characters aren't supposed to tell racist jokes. Of course, this is the "Two and a half Men" network, so I may not have much of a leg to stand on with this one.
I do find it funny that this show got pilloried, but the Chuck Lorre panel and the new Rob Schneider, "I married a Mexican!" show got out unscathed.
!Rob! got reviewed. Not looking good. http://tv.nytimes.com/2012/01/12/arts/television/rob-schneiders-new-sitcom-rob-on-cbs-review.html
"It’s supposed to be funny because she’s Mexican-American, in somewhat the same way that it’s supposed to be funny — rather than a tiresome Hollywood delusion — that her impossibly tall and attractive daughter (Claudia Bassols) has eloped with an obsessive-compulsive schlub who’s pushing 50 and has just discovered guacamol"
Although it's nice to see Eugenio Derbez got a favorable mention. It'll be interesting seeing him do a sitcom, he's pretty big in Mexico.
