As the characters on ZOEY have a “Check-in Chicken Dinner” for their emotions, I couldn’t help but think the writers should do the same. After a triumphant return last week that demanded second helpings, GIRL’S NIGHT can’t even make it past the “tater tots” to the main course.

The stinker this week was sadly Bernadette Peters, belting out an awful rendition of Sia’s CHEAP THRILLS. My how the mighty Broadway star has fallen. Elsewhere the winners were the N’Sync cover of IT’S TEARING ME APART and Alice Lee’s inventive bathroom dance sequence to Halsey’s GASOLINE. #MVPMandyMoore

While the gender flop of a “girls night” with the guys at home getting facials and the girls out dancing drunk was clever, it wasn’t enough to save this episode from falling back into its old traps. My only reason for the 😊 instead of 🤮 is Alice Lee’s postpartum depression performance as Emily. She nails every scene and her emotional final sequence with her husband David should make any viewer 😢.

It’s available on NBC / Peacock.
