Traffic Light Fox Comedy Preview Clip, Pics, and Pilot Review

Pilot Scoop: Traffic Light

TV is about to get a much-needed refresh with a new crop of midseason shows to wake up your DVR. Before everything premieres, I'm introducing you to the freshman series, one at a time, with my pilot scoops and a new series guide. Today's pick is Fox's comedy Traffic Light.

What it's about: The relationship comedy revolves around three male best friends and their respective love lives. Mike (The Office's David Denman) is married with a baby, Adam (Nelson Franklin) has just moved in with his girlfriend, and Ethan (Kris Marshall, who you'll recognize from Love Actually) is the incorrigible bachelor.

Where it works: The three male leads have great chemistry together, and they're all endearing as guys who want to please their mates but maintain their friendship.

Where it doesn't: The relationship gags in the pilot are so clichéd and borderline sexist — they're mostly based on the conceit that guys want to have fun while their female mates want to rein them in. And frankly, it needs to be funnier to differentiate itself from midseason's other relationship comedies like Perfect Couples.

Am I hooked? I'm on the fence; I wasn't dying to watch another episode, but the cast has a lot of potential.

When is it on? Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 9:30 p.m. on Fox.
