Wow, that could be a perfect storm of grouchiness.

This show is either going to be hilariously funny or more likely the worst thing ever put on TV.

/Does Denis Leary have a recurring role yet?

Stars from the 80s who didn't get guest spots on Psych....this fall on the I Can't Find the Remote channel, "We're Still Alive!".

This show might be good. At least worth checking out the pilot

They were 14 (Bergen) and 26 (Grodin) when Fox was born.

You mean the world's first fox, like the species? I sort of believe that.

It's good to see that Michael J. Fox is able to get back to his career. The future didn't look too promising for him.

Really?  I've only seen her in Boston Legal, but she seemed quite good there, or at least well-suited to the role.  What has she been in that you didn't like?

His recurring character on the good wife is awesome. Great show all around actually. Best cast on tv.

I'm guessing Michael J Fox will get maybe a season and a half before he can't continue the schedule anymore, and the show either gets the axe, or a complete retool.

I've heard the pilot is good. I a have high hopes, and I love casting Grodin. He's a superb actor.

that was great.  its weird to see someone famous just openly poking fun at their own serious medical condition.

What? No, Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross?  That would have been fun.

shake it up with all you've got
dance all night whirl your hair
make the night cats stop and stare
dance all night go to work
do the move with quirky jerk
just shake it up

toddalmighty: Charles Grodin is an asshole


Hey definitely plays enough of them. Anything leading you to believe he's like that IRL? You know he's an actor, who pretends to be someone completely different than who he is?

CruiserTwelve: It's good to see that Michael J. Fox is able to get back to his career. The future didn't look too promising for him.


Agreed. I grew up loving BTTF and someone liking Family Ties, and my own father is having a very rough time right now with Parkinsons in his old age; given that there may be a genetic component of Parkinsons I'm a little scared.. That said...

One of my favorite Johnny Carson clips is when Grodin comes on to push his autobiography, and Carson just levels him.

Charles Grodin has never been asked back to host after he gave a clumsy performance. In October 1977, on his one appearance on the show, Grodin missed rehearsal, stumbled his way through the show, and ad-libbed many of his lines.

Sounds like he was rather unprofessional back in the day, though I could see "asshole" coming from that. Anyone have any more?

I wrote that wrong. I meant to say:

"It's good to see that Michael J. Fox has a career to get back to. The future didn't look too promising for him."

/Maybe now someone will get it.

My father and grandfather have/had Parkinson's. so I was pretty sure I was farked.

Do yourself a favor and order a consumer genetic test from 23 and Me. Mine told me I was not at any higher risk than anyone else. Other nasty crap, yes, but not that. Weirdly it's helped me calm down and make prevention decisions I wouldn't have otherwise made.
