I have mixed feelings about this for two reasons:

1. This series will be a multi-camera sitcom, which usually means more traditional and likely in front of a live audience.

2. I’m not convinced the characters can carry an entire series.

Definitely agree with your first point. Not so concerned about the second point. I would imagine that Zoe Perry and Annie Potts will either be series regulars or heavily recurring, and that Iain Armitage and Raegan Revord will make occasional guest appearances. And it seems like they're setting Rachel Bay Jones and Will Sasso to be series regulars. And then they'll probably introduce new characters between Georgie and Mandy in age. So it's not like the entire show will be on them, even though they're the main characters.

The title also implies that while George and Mandy definitely get divorced at some point (as confirmed by Jerry O'Connell's appearances as grown-up Georgie), they find their way back to each other down the road.

Sitcoms seldom succeed based on the supposed "leads". It's the supporting cast that will make or break a show.

I, for one apparently, would embrace the switch back to a multi-cam style. I have not really warmed to any single-cam sitcom and is one reason I enjoyed TBBT more than YS.

I wouldn't mind it if it were multi-cam like the laugh track-free "M*A*S*H" episodes on DVD. But I hate the juiced audience laughter and the overly bright way they light multi-camera sitcoms.
