After being less-than-impressed with the "sneak preview" of the new NBC comedy, GUYS WITH KIDS earlier this month, I was reluctant to give the show another shot. Somehow or another, my DVR decided to record the second episode of the show as it made it's way into NBC's new Wednesday Night lineup for it's "official" premiere this week, so I decided to check it out. Sadly, the second serving was worse than the first.
Last night, NBC got their Fall Season started a little early with sneak-peeks at the pilot episodes of two new comedies, THE NEW NORMAL (not about being a Dad, but using an oft-used term for "Stay at home Dads" as it's title) and the Dad-centric, GUYS WITH KIDS. I'm not a big sitcom guy, and while I skipped 'Normal, I had GUYS WITH KIDS set to record on the DVR for later viewing, lured by it's subject matter and Jimmy Fallon's involvement in the series. After viewing it this afternoon, I can confidently say that GUYS WITH KIDS will be a big hit... but not with guys with kids.
