Kyle’s Choice

manwithaplan1024smallTonight, Matt LeBlanc (Friends, Episodes) returns to network TV in the new CBS sitcom Man with a Plan. LeBlanc stars as Adam, a contractor who is forced to become a more active parent to his three kids when wife Andi (Liza Snyder, Yes, Dear) decides to go back to work after being a stay-at-home mom for 13 years. Adam is in for quite a shock as he discovers just how much work goes into taking care of the children – preteen daughter Kate (Grace Kaufman, The Last Ship), middle child Teddy (Matthew McCann), and youngest Emme (Hala Finley), who’s just starting kindergarten. The series also stars Jessica Chaffin (Episodes), Diana Maria Riva (Telenovela), Matt Cook (Clipped), and Kevin Nealon (Saturday Night Live).

Back in May, I saw the original pilot for this series, where Jenna Fischer was originally playing the wife. While I wasn’t really blown away, the episode did have some fun moments and potential. I like the fish-out-of-water premise of Adam trying to figure out how to be a parent and learning how to not be played by the kids. And I’m particularly interested to see how the addition of Liza Snyder to the cast changes things, especially with her experience on a long-running family sitcom. I think this series will make a good companion to Kevin Can Wait, which also has a similar classic/retro sitcom feel to it.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” a contractor becomes a stay-at-home dad after his wife goes back to work.

Meet Adam and his family tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c

I’ll also be watching/recording Timeless, Gotham, Lucifer, Supergirl, and Jane the Virgin.
