Premieres Tuesday, September 11 9pm ET on NBC
Viewers already have had a taste of this new series starring Matthew Perry thanks to a sneak peek during the Summer Olympics and the reviews were generally positive. Could this be the show that breaks Matthew’s post-Friends curse? Perry plays snarky sportscaster Ryan King, who recently lost his wife in a car accident. Ryan attempts to come back to work after taking some time off to deal with his loss, but his boss won’t let him back on the airwaves until he seeks grief counseling. Ryan reluctantly joins a support group led by a former Weight Watchers counselor, played by Laura Benanti. Blending comedy – provided by the quirky members of the support group and tragedy – as the group share their feelings and attempt to deal with their losses, the show offers viewers a chance to laugh, cry and think. We’re just glad to have one of our favorite “friends” back on the small screen!
