Hey - didn't someone say in a CHAT that THE MIDDLE has some connection with MITM? Crew or a writer or producer?

I've been catching the last couple episodes and it's been getting better. Or say it's growing on me.

I still think it seriously needs a caffeine injection with an MITM director, but the stories are funny, the family is quirky but likable and believable. The mom just had an economy speech and it reminded me of Lois' talk that they couldn't afford real vacations. (Sheesh, makes me want to watch the WATERPARK episodes again!)

So far, compared to SONS OF TUCSON, I'm enjoying THE MIDDLE a bit more, though SOT is only episode 2 here.
