I HATE MY TEENAGE DAUGHTER Episode 3 and 4 ‘Teenage Cotillion’ and ‘Teenage Dating’ promo photos

SpoilerTV has posted the high-res versions of the seriously wub-worthy photos from this week’s IHMTD episode, ‘Teenage Cotillion.’ (Click on the images for even higher-res versions).

SpoilerTV has also posted promo photos from Episode 4, which, sadly, don’t include Eric (it looks to be a big episode for Kevin Rahm, though). This may be one of the episodes he wasn’t in, as ESS fans who went to some of the tapings reported that he was unavailable (not sure if it was because he had other projects in the works!). If nothing else, it feels very strange to hear the episode referred to as their “winter finale episode.” They just got started!

I still maintain that the show’s name was a mistake. I think FOX secretly regrets it as evidenced by their backpedalling opening logo:

Besides the early promo video of Jaime Pressly and Katie Finneran answering “Fans’ Facebook questions” by video – in which, coincidentally, the only question “answered” was, “Why the title?” the cutesy logo, to me at least, shouts – “No! We were only kidding, we don’t really hate our teenage daughters! We really love them! We just wanted to capture viewers’ attention with a gimmicky show name!”

Instead, what they’ve done, is given lazy headline-writers and automatic easy punchline, and an excuse to harsh on a show they hadn’t even seen yet. Bad move, FOX.

According to Futon Critic,the full first series (and FOX’s initial order) was for 13 episodes, which finish filming next week. The penultimate episode tapes tonight, and free tickets for next week’s season finale taping, Tuesday, 20th December, at the Warner Brothers studios in Los Angeles are still available via the Audiences Unlimited website.

Here’s hoping it’s back for the spring!

    Yeah, unless there were some prerecorded (or postrecorded, I guess) scenes with him, ESS isn’t in next week’s episode. 🙁 He was out for production #s 106 and 107, as of now named “Ski Trip” and “Teenage Dating”, respectively.
