Written by , Posted in General

If you know The Dishmaster, then you know that network comedies are outside my Tivometer. They’re too schmaltzy for my taste, and I often can’t get past the laugh-track. That said, The Michael J. Fox show won me over. The single-camera series follows Mike Henry, a news anchor who side-lined his career after his Parkinsons diagnosis. He’s forced to play Mr. Mom, and he’s not very good at it. The real-life inspired antics are entertaining, as are the loving jokes at Mike’s expense. As for Michael J. Fox, it goes without saying that he’s an endearing guy who you want to root for — on camera and off. And this is a show I’m rooting for. Watch the trailer below.
