Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane

The WB, Sundays, 9 p.m.

Like ads for the ESPNews channel, the promos for this show are much funnier than the product. While the best WB dramas (Felicity, Buffy and Dawson's Creek) shape teen angst into complex characters and sharp dialogue, Zoe doesn't get much beyond 10[cent] sitcom jokes. The idea of watching four non-vampire slaying Manhattan teenagers sounds appealing, but the show makes you realize how much of high school was down time, not worth committing to script. Zoe makes an effort with realistic teen dilemmas and some quirkiness, but the overall thinness leaves you wanting more Boy Meets World.
