Us rating: **

Keri Russell picked this opposites-attract sitcom as her first series since Felicity. Sad to say, it wasn't a good move. The musty setup: Idealistic yet not terribly clever Emmy (Russell) ditches her do-gooding in the Amazon to show an old flame, selfish billionaire Steven (Will Arnett), how to "be a better man." Not easy, considering he gives himself a humanitarian award to impress her! Self-improvement can be sweet and funny (see: My Name Is Earl), but Wilde's would-be satire is instead hollow and flat. The two stars try hard, though. (Fox, 9:30 P.M.)
