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.

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

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

Brothers is not a good show, and it's a shame, because the sum of its parts should add up to a lot more than the whole that will hit your TV screens on Friday.

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