SHOW: The Michael J. Fox Show, comedy

WHO: Michael J. Fox, Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), Wendell Pierce (Treme) and Katie Finneran (I Hate My Teenage Daughter)

WHAT: Inspired by the former Family Ties actor’s life, Fox stars as a husband and father of three from New York City dealing with family, career and challenges — including Parkinson’s disease — as he goes back to work as a news anchor.

WHEN: Thursdays, 9:30 PM EST


BOTTOM LINE: I only saw a 30-second clip yesterday, which severely underwhelmed me. It’s a good thing NBC decided to drop this longer preview to give us a better concept of the show. It looks funny. Fox is, as always, relatable. Adding Pierce to the mix only helps. He’s a – if under-appreciated – great actor.
