Cashmere Mafia: Mia's No Carrie, But I Don't Care

Last night, I tuned in to watch the pilot episode of ABC's new series Cashmere Mafia. What I found wasn't much of a surprise. Four successful women living in NYC, wearing fabulous clothes (thank you, Patricia Fields), and banding together over cocktails to survive the tragedy that is love. This is starting to sound awfully familiar.

So, yes, we've seen this all before in Sex and the City (and chances are we'll see it again when Candace Bushnell's Lipstick Jungle premieres in February). But isn't imitation the highest form of flattery?  Maybe I'm just starved for something fun to watch on Sunday nights, but I actually enjoyed the show, no matter how predictable it might be. And even if the story line seemed a bit lacking (Lucy Liu's character was just a tad less upset than I might have been had my fiance dumped me over a job), I enjoyed every last second of it, and I'll definitely come back to see what happens next. Honestly, my only real beef with the show is the name–you would think a creative team like this one could have come up with something slightly less ridiculous than Cashmere Mafia.

What do you think? Is there room on the small screen for SATC copycats? Even if we'll never have another Carrie Bradshaw, isn't it fun to have someone else with great shoes and a rocky love life? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
