Tv Season Info

The comedy series is based on the experience of producers Mark Feuerstein and Dana Klein, who are married in real life. After his divorce and the cancellation of his TV show, actor Josh Roberts (Feuerstein) moves to New York City, in an apartment that sits between that of his parents (Elliot Gould and Linda Lavin) and his brother's (David Walton). His family often prevent him from having relationships, friendships, and even job opportunities, but as he tries to get away from their dysfunctional tendencies, he finds out that they can also be a source of strength.

Here's a comedy that just reeks of CBS.

At least he (Feuerstein) gets to work with his writer wife, Dana Klein,, with whom he created the show. (They say based on their lives. I say, condolences.)

Top Critic

The show's one-joke premise - parents can be such buttinskis! - wears thin fast despite the likability of Ms. Lavin and Mr. Gould.

9JKL is the kind of show that could have existed in the '90s, early '00s, or today, and still been panned no matter when it debuted.

I like the cast, and it's beyond cute that the creator/writer/executive producer is Feuerstein's real-life wife, Dana Klein. But this is painfully unfunny. It's a chore to sit through.

Except for the randier jokes, it seems to have been mined from a bygone era of TV, complete with laugh track.
