It seems like with every season there is a new Friends ripoff. The Class, premiering on CBS tonight at 8/7c, is one of those. The premise is that idealistic pediatrician, Ethan (played by John Ritter's son, Jason), plans a surprise party for his fiance to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the day they first met in third grade. The surprise is that Ethan actually gathers all of the members of their third grade class together for the party. His fiance is less than thrilled and bolts while the misfit crowd of former classmates remains to rekindle their long lost friendships. The class includes every stereotype imaginable. Luckily for CBS, How I Met Your Mother is on right after.
The weak premise and the unlovable characters of The Class mean that we probably won't be tuning in, but we will for sure be tuning in to last year's newcomer and far superior Friends-esque show, How I Met Your Mother. The new season starts up right after The Class on CBS at 8:30/7:30c. We can't wait to find out if Marshall and Lily get back together and continue their wedding plans and if Ted and Robin can finally make it work this time. And of course, then there is Barney. Got to love Barney!
