Laura Dern's Enlightened Is A Dud!

| Filed under: TV NewsRehab

Enlightened

HBO usually makes some winners, but Enlightened just isn't one of them, ratings wise at least!

The series premiere averaged 210,000 viewers Monday night at 9:30pm. This was following a 240,000 lead-in with Bored to Death.

The show revolves around Amy Jellicoe (played by Laura Dern) as she attempts to get her life back on track following a very public breakdown, followed by an "awakening" in rehab. Luke Wilson also stars.

It sounds like Eat, Pray, Love mixed with Celebrity Rehab. We're shocked nobody's interested!

    the show just focused on her 2 polar opposite personalities. On one side a woman losing it with very little backstory as to why she is losing it and on the other side they make her into some wayyyyy to flaky hippie chick. I'll stick around for a couple more episodes, but so far this character lacks any real depth.

    You mean to say that all the massive promotion for it on this very site didn't have the desired effect? Go figure…

    You know…I hate to say it but I totally blame that picture that they use in the ad. (The one posted here.) It actually turns me off from wanting to see it. The premise sounds good, but that picture makes my skin crawl.
    It could also have definitely have used some more publicity. I really have hardly heard ANYTHING about it at all with the exception of seeing that one horrible picture in a couple of places.

    I'v seen the trailers for this - looked like it should be subtitled 'white people problems'
    I think when the world feels like as much of a scary uncertain place as it does right now with the economic situation etc shows like this about people who can't cope even though theres nothing that wrong with their lives just seem indulgent and distant. don't really know why anyone would bother watching it.

    Im sure this show will be great. But honestly, her mouth is bothering me. Why is the other half all the way down?

    We already have an unlimited number of INSANE CELEBRITIES to watch for real; we don't need a celebrity playing insane…..

    I think HBO really dropped the ball on promoting this show. The commercials showed this woman crying, screaming, freaking out. It wasn't funny, it wasn't inspirational, it was depressing. I totally blame the advertising. People are already freaking out about enough, why would they want to watch someone else go through it?

    It was cute. I would watch it again

    It's probably cause they really no ads for it. I only heard about after it already aired, but it wasn't that bad. Something I might continue to watch.
