ReceptionEdit

Dalton Ross of Entertainment Weekly gave the series premiere a grade of D+, stating that the "Darren Star created drama plays like a bad Melrose Place episode with obligatory IPO terminology thrown in".[2] Howard Rosenberg of Los Angeles Times was lukewarm on the show, calling it "passable but hardly a highlight".[3]
