Diane Wets of Newsday says that tonight’s “laugh n’ sniff” promotion of tonight’s My Name Is Earl is a joke (of the pathetic sense) and today’s sitcoms are hardly the caliber of past Must See TV sitcom successes.

How about a new sitcom featuring Hawks owner Bill Wirtz? Watch as hijinks ensue every week as Dollar Bill stumbles around drunk trying to run his pathetic hockey team and his pathetic family….
Oh wait a minute… I’m describing According to Jim. Nevermind….
