Quick fixes for the fall's worst new TV Shows
Can 'Mom,' 'Dads,' and 'We Are Men' be saved?
"The Goldbergs" (ABC)
Biggest Flaw: Somebody accidentally set the volume on "11" and then walked away.
Our Helpful Solution: Shhhh. We get it. The dad likes to yell a lot. And the mom likes to yell a lot. And the kids like to yell a lot. And it's the '80s. Maybe write some scenes that catch them between fits of pique? And maybe write some scenes without a single reference to an '80s pop culture landmark. Just let everything have room to breathe. Or they could just add Heather Locklear as a sexy shiksa next door.
