Guys with Kids
NBC, Wednesdays, 8:30 p.m. ET/PT |
Three guys walk into a bar … wearing baby carriers, carrying babies! Are you laughing yet? The opening gag of this new series is not just contrived but also uncomfortable-at one point divorced dad Chris (Jesse Bradford) asks a comely bar patron if he and his infant son can buy her a drink. Ick. But the show improves from there. When stay-at-home dad Gary (Anthony Anderson) and his wife, Marny (The Cosby Show’s ageless Tempestt Bledsoe), try to sneak in a make-out session only to have the kids pound on the bathroom door, Anderson’s shout of “This is all we have!” rings true. The kind of pained-funny true that parents who have been there, shouted that, will relish.
