'LA to Vegas' takes flight with funny premiere

The new Fox comedy, LA to Vegas, took off Tuesday night. The show is centered on a flight attendant named Ronnie who’s stuck working the L.A.-to-Vegas route on a cheap airline.

The show’s setting is reminiscent of the ultra-successful series Cheers in that it almost entirely takes place in a single location. Instead of a bar full of functional alcoholics, it’s an airplane full of functional alcoholics … and stripppers and gamblers.

Ronnie has dreams of traveling the world on a major airline. But she has a few character flaws that have dashed her dreams for one reason or another, so now she finds herself looking for romance in a bathroom at 35,000 feet.

The pilot episode was pretty funny, all things considered. Dylan McDermott does a great job playing the plane’s pilot, Captain Dave, while Peter Stormare and Olivia Macklin are sure to be fan favorites as the gambler and the stripper who regularly fly the route.

LA to Vegas airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
