Kyle’s Choice

crowded315smallTonight, NBC kicks off its new family sitcom, Crowded, with back-to-back episodes. The series finds empty nesters Mike (Patrick Warburton, Rules of Engagement) and Martina Moore (Carrie Preston, True Blood, The Good Wife) finally starting to enjoy their freedom, when their daughters suddenly want to move back in. Bookish Shea (Miranda Cosgrove, iCarly) was the victim of a layoff and can no longer afford to live on her own, while wild child Stella (Mia Serafino, Shameless) is having problems with her boyfriend. And to make matters worse, Mike’s father Bob (Stacy Keach, NCIS: NOLA) and stepmother Alice (Carlease Burke, Switched at Birth) have cancelled their plans to spend their golden years in Florida now that their grandkids are going to be around.

I watched tonight’s first episode and found it to be a pretty standard family sitcom. However, I was surprised that this was an NBC series, because it felt a lot like one of those ABC Friday comedies, though maybe slightly more adult in the humor. However, since the series comes from executive producers Suzanne Martin, Sean Hayes, Todd Milliner, and James Burrows, who have a long history with NBC, that explains it. The cast is great, and I like the premise of the series, so I look forward to checking out tonight’s second episode to see more of what the weekly series is going to be like.

On tonight’s first episode, “Pilot,” Shea and Stella upend their parents’ plans when they move back home after college. Then in tonight’s second episode, “Present Tense,” Mike and Martina hope to re-spark their sex life, which has been dormant since the Stella and Shea moved home. Stella, meanwhile, helps Shea with a dating app.

Meet the newest TV family tonight on NBC at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Limitless, Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Grinder, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, Chrisley Knows Best, Awkward., and Faking It.
