Season Info

A recently retired NFL player strapped for cash moves in with his parents and younger brother. With his father (Carl Weathers) beginning to have memory issues, and his wheelchair-bound brother (Darryl "Chill" Mitchell) struggling to keep his sports-bar running, Mike (Michael Strahan) returns to his home in Houston, Sibling rivalry becomes a primary issue, but adding to the family dynamic is his mother (CCH Pounder), who has definite ideas about keeping her reunited family in line.

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (11)

The cast is for the most part wasted on this sophomoric material.

While the jokes aren't always home runs, many of them are, and you have to give them credit for the subject matter.

Television Without Pity

Brothers manages to be fairly amusing, with Pounder showing off her range by shifting from the very serious business of The Shield to playing a sharp-tongued but nurturing matriarch in a house full of childish squabblers.

You've got to love sibling rivalry jokes to tolerate Brothers. I mean, really, really love them. Because this new Fox sitcom is a dripping faucet of sibling rivalry jokes.

It's merely another average, laugh-track-addled sitcom.

Based on the caliber of the jokes tonight, we shouldn't be overly optimistic.
