‘How to Live with your Parents’ and not be funny

If you were a fan of “Scrubs,” one of the best sitcoms of the past 20 years, then you probably have a special place in your heart for Sarah Chalke. Now it’s time to padlock the door to that special place, so it won’t be sullied by her new project, a feeble ABC sitcom called “How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life).”

Chalke is not really the problem with the show, which premieres on Wednesday night at 9:30, after “Modern Family.” She does her usual effusive but awkward routine, which is winning if predictable. The problem is almost everything around her, including the title, which is cutesy on a stick.
