Tv Season Info

This comedy follows a young woman (Malin Akerman), who, after marrying an older man (Bradley Whitford), inherits difficult relationships with his three kids and two ex-wives. In Series 1, Kate (Akerman) tries to take on more responsibility by helping Pete (Whitford) coach Bert's (Albert Tsai) football team. Later, Meg (Natalie Morales) posts an unflattering picture of Diane (Marcia Gay Harden) online, and Kate butts heads with Jackie (Michaela Watkins) after the two go into business together. Ryan Lee also stars.

We can understand if you wrote this off at first (that title is awful), but "Trophy Wife" turned out to be a sweet family comedy.

Warm, sly, and very, very funny.

Akerman is reason enough to buy in for at least a few episodes.

Thanks to appealing female leads and a clever script, Trophy Wife transcends its simplistic title.

The half-hour is loaded with issues and it's all too sudden and sitcom-random...but these things happen.

Akerman bumps into things with abandon and just the right glimmer of grace. Her knees knock and her limbs fold up like a newborn colt, learning to walk. But her show, anyway, already has legs.

If the writers manage to iron out the few wrinkles the show has, Trophy Wife could become a decent hit for the network.

There aren't a ton of laugh-out-loud moments. In fact, the pilot inspires more smiles than guffaws. However, as sitcoms go, this one isn't bad.

You know exactly where this one is going and yet it works for the most part.

It has a few laughs but doesn't deserve any trophies.

Audience Reviews for Trophy Wife: Season 1


Surprisingly cuter than I expected. And Albert Tsai is great. Every time he winks I cry laughing.
