The Return of Jezebel James, a sitcom premiering tonight on Fox, has all the trappings of a quirky, must-see comedy: it's the "brainchild" of Gilmore Girls' creator Amy Sherman-Palladino! It stars wacky indie "It Girl" Parker Posey! It has some reference to Brooklyn! And yet, the critics all find the show flat. (We suspected as much.) The premise is a basic Odd Couple formula: Sarah (Posey) is a hard-working editor who wants a child but cannot conceive, so she enlists the uterus of her estranged, bohemian sister, Coco (Lauren Ambrose), and makes Coco move into her fabulous New York apartment. Comedy gold, right? Eh, maybe not. Some disappointed reviews, after the jump.
