Picks and Pans Review: Dog House

USA (Saturdays and Sundays, 4:30 P.M. ET)

The channel’s first sitcom stars a talking Saint Bernard named Digby who lives with a single mom (Shelley Peterson) and three kids (Jaimz Woolvett, Valentina Cardinalli and Jonathan Shapiro). In fact, Digby is the reincarnation of their uncle.

It’s not enough that Digby speaks—while his muzzle and head twitch tortuously. We also hear his thoughts.

All the adult male figures are completely reprehensible, including Mom’s boss, a sleazy real estate agent (David Bronstein, doing a bad Gilbert Gottfried imitation). The humor is very forced. This pooch of a show arrived neutered.
