Tv Season Info

Three thirtysomething friends attempt to balance fatherhood with fun in this Jimmy Fallon-produced sitcom. In the show's only season, the lives of Gary (Anthony Anderson), Chris (Jesse Bradford) and Nick (Zach Cregger) are chronicled as they take on everyday adventures such as disciplining their kids, relating to their partners and finding time for themselves. Basketball Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar plays himself in two of the season's episodes, while actor-comedian Brian Posehn chips in with the recurring role of Victor.

The story is about - well, that's kind of the problem. There isn't much of any story.

Nothing to see here. Move on.

Guys With Kids is a perfect confection of witty dialogue and slapstick action.

Sep 26, 2012 | Full Review…

Guys with Kids is over-populated, under-funny and no match for the simple charms of Three Men and a Baby.

The people on Guys With Kids are fun to be with, but real people with real time constraints might decide they have better things to do.

Jimmy Fallon must be in it for the money, (not the funny.)

Sep 26, 2012 | Full Review…

Shows a profound misunderstanding not only of what entertainment is but also of the last 30 years in the evolution of the American family.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Guys With Kids never really succeeds at being particularly funny, but had it not focused so heavily on Chris and Sheila's dysfunctional relationship, it might have avoided being actively offensive.

If this is the ideal of a "broad" comedy, we'll be waiting for something more specific.

The grating laugh track works against the show.
