Back in the '98-'99 season, there was a delightful little show called Cupid which was sweet, funny and charming. Unfortunately it only lasted a little over a dozen episodes before being axed. Some attribute it to its time slot, but Mom and I both think that part of its problem was that it was too far ahead of the curve. The whimsical mixture of romance, comedy, and mythology was just too new.
ABC is the now the home of such delights as Pushing Daisies and Ugly Betty which share Cupid's sweetness. I think it is due to the success of these shows that the powers that be have decided that it is the perfect time to bring Cupid back.
It premiered last night at 10 p.m. EST and was delightful! It stars Tony Award winner Bobby Cannavale as Trevor Pierce or Cupid, Rick Gomez as Felix Araiza, Camille Guaty as Lita Araiza and Sarah Paulson as Dr. Claire McCrae. She is one of my favorite actresses and you might recognize her from Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, What Women Want and Down With Love, among others.

*Be sure to keep an eye on Trevor's shirts, they all are related to love. Last night he was wearing a Virginia is for Lovers shirt and another with the silhouette of the Taj Mahal on it. Such subtle touches really add to the charm of this show.
