So you know those nights when your brain is fried, you just want to lie on the couch in your  rattiest sweats, and eating what may or may not amount to 2,000 calories of Cherry Garcia straight from the carton?

“Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23,” ABC’s latest sitcom venture, is the perfect thing to watch on those nights.

The show tells the story of a bright-eyed, small-town girl, June, who moved to New York to start an exciting new job — but her first day at work, her company is shut down and she finds herself unemployed and homeless (when she’s kicked out of her corporate apartment.)  June, played with a brilliant balance of naiveté and gumption by Dreama Walker, is determined to turn the situation around. June takes a job a local coffee shop and searches for a roommate- enter Chloe in Apartment 23.

Chloe (Krysten Ritter) is best friends with James Van Der Beek (aka Dawson from “Dawson’s Creek”). She invites June to move in, with the plan of driving June so crazy that she’ll move out, and Chloe can keep her cash.  However, after June makes it through Chloe’s shenanigans unscathed- some of which include walking around in the buff and sleeping with June’s fiancé…on her birthday cake-Chloe welcomes June in and an odd-couple friendship is formed.

“Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23” isn’t the smartest, or funniest, show currently on television. Many critics have said that you shouldn’t trust that B — nor should you watch her. However, there is a campy, over-the-top element to the show that proves irresistible in the way of mindless, fluffy television.

So, while it may not be up for an Emmy nomination anytime soon, “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23” is the chick-lit of sitcoms. Despite being indulgent, cheesy, and even a little zany,  I found it irresistible — much like the Cherry Garcia ice cream I downed while watching.
