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.)

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.

Oct 21, 2017 | Full Review…

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

Oct 4, 2017 | Full Review…

Everyone is far too involved in each other's business, because that's how sitcoms work, but the show's screechy self-loathing makes that seem damning and toxic rather than just antic and fun.

Oct 11, 2017 | Full Review…

The pilot promises a competent if familiar sitcom comedy that's more comfortable than daring - and that's OK.

Oct 5, 2017 | Full Review…

Mediocre comedy fails to impress, despite talented cast.

Oct 3, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

To be fair, 9JKL does raise some important questions: principally, what bridge is Gould living under that he had to take this show?
