Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Series Info

`Seinfeld' alums were 0-for-3 when Julia Louis-Dreyfus struck out as an L.A. club singer whose romantic entanglements, domestic dilemmas and performance predicaments unfolded in `real time.' Although it lasted for parts of two seasons, too few were watching Ellie, and the show folded like those of former colleagues Michael Richards and Jason Alexander.

Critics Consensus: Watching Ellie drastically alters its format to better resemble a conventional sitcom, but ditching the stylization only makes the lack of decent material for Louis-Dreyfus all the more apparent.

2003, NBC, 6 episodes

Critics Consensus: Julia Louis-Dreyfus' comedic charms make Ellie watchable, but a cumbersome tick-tock gimmick and derivative plotting hamper the sitcom star's full potential for delight.

2002, NBC, 10 episodes
