I love my non-job of running this site for many reasons. But being able to chat with the celebs & TV showrunners, being able to catch show premieres early (this week, it was NCIS, Hawaii Five-0, & the series premiere of Vegas on CBS—and all were great. I loved the new show a lot more than I’d anticipated. The cast is phenomenal!), and last but not least, bringing you the schedules each week & daily plus what we think you guys should be watching each day is my favorite reason. Now that I’ve said all that, go on… See what we think you should be watching tonight. 😉
I’m so excited about tonight’s premiere of the new series Guys with Kids. I always love shows like this, and it’s brought to us by Jimmy Fallon, so it’s worth giving a chance (or two) to before judging it. Here’s the premise: The show is about three 30-something dads who try to hold on to their youth as they face the responsibilities of having kids. Thankfully, Gary (Anthony Anderson, Law & Order), Chris (Jesse Bradford, The West Wing) and Nick (Zach Cregger, Friends with Benefits) have each other to help navigate the highs and lows of fatherhood—while still trying desperately to remain dudes. Balancing work or staying at home, happily married or happily divorced, taking care of the “littles” while maintaining a social life is a daily challenge. Whether it’s hosing down their babies in the kitchen sink or hitting the bar strapped with “babybjorns,” these guys are taking on fatherhood in ways no one has ever seen before. Nick’s and Gary’s wives—Emily (Jamie-Lynn Sigler, The Sopranos) and Marny (Tempestt Bledsoe, The Cosby Show) also offer their own parenting advice. Dads today are more involved in their kids’ lives than ever, and these guys are no exception. No tantrum is too loud, no diaper is too dirty—Nick, Chris, and Gary are up to the challenge.
Besides Jimmy Fallon, Charlie Grandy (from NBC’s The Office) is also an exec producer/creator, & Rick Wiener and Kenny Schwartz (from Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place & American Dad) are executive producers. And finally, Emmy-nominated director Scott Ellis (Modern Family & 30 Rock) is the director. Those are some big name comedy backgrounds, so I’m hoping that translates into something great. 🙂
On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” when Chris is asked out to a Knicks game, he must find a babysitter without his ex-wife Shelia (Erinn Hayes) finding out. Elsewhere, Gary and Marny find an unusual spot for some alone time. Meanwhile, Nick is in the dog house when he forgets about an important event with his wife, Emily.
Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Guys with Kids @ Clicker.
