The new Reba McEntire show, Malibu Country, is pretty much the old Reba McEntire show, Reba, recycled. Reba’s husband has cheated on her, and this is her life post-divorce. The location is Malibu, her husband is a country music star instead of a dentist, and her daughter’s not pregnant, but everything else is more or less the same. If you like exaggerated Southern accents, cookie-cutter comedy puns, and single mom/teenager melodramatics, all laced with a painful laugh track, Malibu Country is for you. Whether or not you’re into it—and six years of Reba showed that a lot of people were—Lily Tomlin as Reba’s weed-happy mother Lillie Mae is almost reason enough to tune in. Malibu is better off with the country left out of it. Pass. (
