Fox’s Drama ‘Rosewood’ Set in Miami Gets Scorched on Twitter: ‘Nothing New,’ ‘Painful,’ ‘Cheesy’

Before Wednesday’s highly-anticipated return of hip-hop soap “Empire,” Fox aired the first episode of new procedural drama “Rosewood.

But the forensic-doctor series could already be D.O.A., according to harsh tweets about the premiere.

The drama follows Morris Chestnut as Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, the top private pathologist Miami. An optimist at heart, he butts heads with the cynical detective (Jaina Lee Ortiz) he’s often tasked with working alongside.

While the sexy locations, exotic Miami backdrop and attractive stars — including Chestnut repeatedly stripping his shirt off — lured plenty of first-time viewers, it may not be enough to keep them if the response on social media is anything to go by.

There were many points of criticism, from poor writing to casting Ortiz (playing Det. Annalise Villa) as his female lead as opposed to an African American actress, but the bottom line seemed to be that “Rosewood” is just plain bad.

Other users called it “cheesy,” some predicted that it be canceled and another described it as “painful.”
