It's normal. Most shows on the CW are an hour long.

I have been a big fan of Bloom for a couple years now. First song I remember was about some kid fantasizing about his teacher's rack and it was hilarious. Definitely has her own voice and I'm glad she's getting a shot with this show.

That was fucking phenomenal. The pacing was a little weird (which of course would happen when they had to take it from 30 minutes to 42), but there was so many jokes and it was so inventive and it worked so well.

If you had told me two years ago that The CW would have one of the best comedy blocks on television I would have laughed at you! AND YET HERE WE ARE!

Not sure, but the show did get 5 additional scripts ordered, so probably 18 at this point.

Seriously, they've had some amazing instincts picking oddball scripts with female leads so perfect for their roles that I mourn all those years in the aughts lost on gritty, brooding anti-heroes.

This is the new TV, and I couldn't be happier. Now it's time for everyone else to step up their game.

Wow, excellent pilot. Bloom is an incredible lead, the songs were fun and very funny (as was the rest of the show), the cast seems good so far. Yeah, the pacing was a little off, but as ivy mentioned that's to be expected when the pilot was expanded a bit in its move to the CW. If the quality holds up, this into Jane into Fargo (albeit on another network) may make Monday my favorite night of TV.

The fate of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is dependent on the fate of Jane the Virgin.

Jane pulled a 0.4 for its season 2 premiere. I wonder what Jane's ratings will look like by the spring.

The way I see it: Either both shows will be renewed, or both shows will be cancelled.

Jane definitely isn't getting cancelled yet. it's the closest thing the CW has ever had to a "prestige show" and won the network its first golden globe.

Hmmm, I guess you're right.

Generally speaking, I do hope more shows like Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex Girlfriend are successful.

They offer something different from a lot of the stuff currently on network television.

I thought the rapper apologizing to "the bitches" was funny, but it kinda broke my suspension of disbelief a bit. If he appeared in Rebecca's fantasy in the bathroom, how is he a real person in the end? Didn't make any sense :D (It's not a huge thing, but it bothers me the same)

I agree that the pacing was a little bit weird and you could clearly see they had to bloat the premiere. The conversation with a boss went on a little too long and the character himself was not that funny.

Some weird, noticeable censorship too. The "cunt" in the opening flashback was replaced rather gracefully, but just bleeping out the rap in Sexy Getting Ready Song was... awkward. If they could bring back the actor for the tag (just his voice, as he clearly wasn't available to shoot the additional scenes in person), they could have just easily re-record the "dicks" and "bullshits" in the verse. I think it would have worked better.

Apart from that, I loved the episode and I am certain I will stick with the show for as long as it lasts... which will be to my great sadness just this season

And I'm fairly certain its first Peabody Award and AFI Award, let's not forget, among other accolades. JtV is far and away the most acclaimed show to ever have blessed The CW with its immaculate presence.

I can't see a show as off kilter as this one building a much bigger audience than the pitiful one it has right now, so fingers crossed that its positive reception - like Jane last year, it seems to have been the best received pilot among critics out of the new crop of network shows thus far - allows it to coast for at least a little bit longer.

I think/pray it will. 'Crazy' has big potential to catch on (COMEDY SONGS) and a lot of the subjects it covers are ripe for "deep TV show discussions."
