It seems like there's some confusion over who's the star of this show among its cast. Amusing segments aside, what's evident here is that We Are Men has some funny male leads sharing the spotlight. The comedy stars Tony Shalhoub, Jerry O'Connell, Kal Penn and Chris Smith together, playing four men living in a short-term apartment complex and attempting to ride out the aftermath of their individual romantic troubles.
CBS' full description breaks down the characters' backgrounds even further.
The age gap between the characters is particularly intriguing. Rather than putting for twenty or thirty-somethings together, we have a multigenerational set of men, which could make for some more original humor than what we might see in another other bro-centric comedy.
CBS has this one set to air on Monday nights, which may offset some of the more female-focused humor brought to viewers by 2 Broke Girls and newcomer Mom. But it may stand out a bit, as it's the lone single-camera comedy airing on CBS on Monday nights. So we'll have to wait and see how it does. I'm also wondering when we can start referring to it as WAM.
