I'm thinking Big Shots was probably nothing more than an honorary title because ABC wanted to keep RT on contract while they worked on developing something with him.
Or maybe the deal was, "You bring back 'Cupid' I'll let you put my name on that." ;-)
I adore the cast of this show, however, even if this show was twice as clever as it thinks it is it would still be a crashing bore. Nothing in this mess works… not the self-absorbed, whiny lead characters, not the limp writing, not the “clever” plot twists, not the absurd situations, nothing.
And those critics that described this as a male version of Sex and the City owes the cast, writers, director, and crew of that far superior show a very big apology.

I'm not even a big SatC fan, but I agree with you. And with SatC I never felt there was a hatred of the opposite sex.
