'Teachers' Pets Me Just Right

Anyone watching TV Land's "Teachers," a new show created by the improv group The Katydids that airs after "Younger"? Although the Web-series-turned-sitcom has that throw-everything-and-see-what-sticks brand of comedy that I tend to despise -- See: "Rock, 30" and "Schmidt, Kimmy" -- something about this tale of six elementary school teachers of varying degrees of awfulness works for me so far. (Something about adults who have no patience for children speaks to me.) It doesn't hurt that the hilarious Tim Bagley (Larry on "Will & Grace" and Richard on "Web Therapy") stars as the principal, and that Ms. Bennigan (played to perfection by Katie O'Brien) inappropriately lusts after  the hunky dad (played by Ryan Caltagirone) of one of her students, and is barely able to contain herself when the young boy confesses that his mom has abandoned their home. 

Ginger Ann Snap, played by Katy Colloton, is also delightfully inappropriate, but all six have their charms -- and I love the kid with "aunt hair"!

Well, thanks to your recommendation, I will start recording it. Is "Younger" also worth watching? Thanks.

Younger rocks. My motivation is Hilary Duff... <3
And this daddy surely motivates me to watch his show but I already got enough material, hehe. He's super-dreamy tho!

Love "Teachers". I'm a retired teacher so I can readily identify with all the madness that the ladies generate and the mayhem that surrounds them. Who said Teaching is a dull profession? NOT this masterful show. I especially love the baffled and dumbfounded expressions of their students. Those kids deserve Emmys!
