REBA'S NEW SHOW DELIGHTS CRITIC

Some people might be surprised that Reba McEntire's WB sitcom, "Reba," is doing so well with television audiences. However, those familiar with her career are not -- including "TV Guide" Senior TV Critic Matt Roush.

Roush cites her general popularity as well as her experience in film as well as Broadway for the show's success.

"There are a few reasons that [she's doing so well]," Roush says. "First of all, she's popular in general -- she is a genuine star. Reba proved her mettle on Broadway, in the movies and now on TV. She isn't just a music star, she's got a presence that lights up the screen."

"Reba" airs on the WB Network on Fridays at 9 p.m. EST.
