'The McCarthys' brings another New Kid to CBS: First impressions of the network's 2014-15 comedies
It's a broad-skewing family sitcom about a man from a close-knit Boston family who contemplates taking a teaching job in the far away land of Providence, Rhode Island. We're assuming he stays, since that would kind of mess up the premise of the entire show.
Interestingly, there are way fewer terrible Bahhston accents in the trailer than there are in TBS' Beantown-set "Buzzy's." And there are 100 percent more members of "New Kids On the Block," since it stars Joey McIntyre as one of the brothers. (Tassler pointed out that with Donnie Wahlberg on "Blue Bloods," CBS has 2/5 of the NKOTB members on its fall lineup. Or, as McIntyre then yelled in a well-timed heckle, they've got "the right stuff.")
A joke about "The Good Wife" played best at the CBS-hosted shindig. Take a look at the trailer below and see what you think.
"The McCarthys" airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS starting Oct. 30.
