'The Millers' preview video: Will Arnett moves in with mom Margo Martindale in new CBS comedyAdd to Favorites | The Millers
CBS is making big moves in its comedy programming this fall, expanding its Thursday block to two hours. To do so, it's relying on a handful of big names. Not only did the network place the new Robin Williams vehicle "The Crazy Ones" in the 9 p.m., but it's hoping Will Arnett's latest can bring some fresh eyes to the night as well.
In "The Millers," from "Raising Hope" creator Greg Garcia, Arnett stars as Nathan Miller, a recently divorced local news reporter whose excitement over his new single life is derailed after his dad Tom ( Beau Bridges) leaves his mom Carol ( Margo Martindale, "The Americans"), prompting Carol to move in with Nathan.
The preview of the show reveals its very much in line with the multi-camera comedies that, for better or worse, we've come to expect from CBS. Fans of the networks lineup will probably eat this up. If you're not a fan of the typical CBS comedy fare, there might not be much here for you, but the talent in the cast is a saving grace. JB Smoove ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") co-stars as Nathan's best friend Ray.
"The Millers" airs Thursdays this fall at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.
