CBS recently greenlit a new show, which will join their other popular comedies on Monday night. The sitcom, called Worst Week. Set to follow Two and a Half Men, this new series stars Jerichoís Kyle Bornheimer and Kitchen Confidentialís Erinn Hayes. You can view a preview clip from the series on CBSís website. Below is the description for Worst Week that CBS released.
ďWORST WEEK is a comedy about Sam Briggs, an entertainment magazine editor who will do anything to please his girlfriend's parents ... but instead becomes a one-man wrecking crew whenever he's around them. Sam (Kyle Bornheimer, Jericho) and his girlfriend, Melanie Clayton (Erinn Hayes, Kitchen Confidential), have only one hurdle left to clear as they start their life together: breaking the news to Mel's conservative parents that they have a wedding in the works and a baby on the way. Dick (Kurtwood Smith, That '70s Show), a stern Judge, and his wife Angela (Nancy Lenehan, My Name is Earl), are protective of their daughter, and are really trying to let go of the anger they feel toward Sam ... after all, disaster follows whenever he visits their house. But despite his best efforts, every time Sam takes one positive step forward in winning over his future in-laws, he inevitably takes two crushing steps back. But with support and love from Melanie who stands up for him despite his knack for making himself look bad, Sam will hopefully charm his way into her family. Emmy Award winner Adam Bernstein (30 Rock) directed the pilot. Matt Tarses (Scrubs) and Jimmy Mulville (Whose Line Is It Anyway?) are the executive producers for Universal Media Studios and CBS Paramount Network Television.Ē
Well, the premise sounds simple enough and based on the preview on CBSís website, the humor looks a bit on the obvious side but that should make it a good fit for the post-Two and a Half Men timeslot. The only thing I watch on CBS on Monday nights is How I Met Your Mother but Iíll probably check out the first episode of this series if only to see if thereís anything more to it than the kind of goofiness shown in the preview.
