    Seems as though "Madison High" was not picked up as the 'main actress' from Madison High is now the star of this show.

    Meh. Madison High sounded way better than this.

    Sounds silly. But cute for kids.

    And heck, how bad could it be if a writer from Frasier, Rosanne, and Doogie Howser is working on it?

    The title did make me laugh, though.

    Had this been a spin-off from Family Guy, I would have better appreciated the show. Easily can see Brian creating a blog while sipping on a martini within his own thoughts. I just don't think the execution of this show will be successful. Also, secrets again Disney? Can we stop this 'We must keep A a secret from B' system again? It's time to craft better stories.

    Agreed. The idea of hyper-intelligent family dog might garnish some laughs, but the "we have something cool, but we must keep it a secret from everybody" angle is beyond tired. But then, I don't even like secret identities on superhero shows.

    Dogs using the internet is kind of a one-joke premise, isn't it? Disney's really starting to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

    In all fairness, it's a commonly-used trope that has been used by network television for decades to varying degrees of success.
