The Television Critics Association meeting in going on in LA so there is a lot of TV news coming out. A new pilot script was just picked up by Fox entitled I Hate My Teenage Daughter.

Here's the log line:

The story is about two women who were tormented by mean girls when they were younger, and are now appalled to realize their daughters are turning into the same type of girls they never liked.

I get it. It's tongue and cheek and supposed to be funny. I even like the description, but I hate the TITLE. Teenage years are tough enough for parents and kids without the TV box making things worse. The issue to me is that no one would ever create a show entitled "I Hate My Son" cause we know that would never fly.

I have some hope that the title is just a fluke because the show is written by by two women Sherry Bilsing-Graham and Ellen Kreamer who worked on The New Adventures of Old Christine which I loved.
