Was Suburgatory Heavenly, Hellish, or Somewhere in Between?

Did you watch Suburgatory last night? Did its misfit-teen lead Tessa (Jane Levy) remind you of Juno, so you loved it? Or did she remind you of Juno, so you hated it? The show, about a teenage girl and her single dad (Jeremy Sisto) who abruptly move to the 'burbs, had some serious Mean Girls vibes, not the least of which was its Regina George look-alike queen bee. But does the show have a strong enough voice of its own? Does it fit well with The Middle and Modern Family, or is it a little too sardonic for the earnestness bloc? And could it possibly have a worse title?
