The Millers TV Show Review

Pilot Scoop: The Millers

Will Arnett is giving primetime another try with his new comedy, The Millers, which makes its big TV debut tonight. He stars as a man caught in the middle of his grown parents' squabble alongside Justified's Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges, and we're giving you the inside scoop on the pilot and whether it's a show you need to keep an eye on.

  • What it's about: Local TV reporter Jack (Arnett) has been hiding his divorce from his parents (Martindale and Bridges) for a while, but when they come to visit, all is revealed. After a brief panic, his folks decide if Jack can get a divorce, so can they. Now Jack's stuck with both of his bickering parents in his house as they rediscover what it means to be a family.
  • Where it works: Arnett is one of TV's best comedians, and he's definitely on his game here. I love seeing talented actors like Bridges and Martindale as the parents, and even J.B. Smoove, as Jack's friend, hits a sweet note.
  • Where it doesn't: There's only so far you can go with good actors when the writing just isn't quality. So many of the jokes go for cheap laughs, and the laugh track is overkill.
  • You might like this show if: You're a fan of dysfunctional family comedies like Two and a Half Men.
  • When it's on: Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. on CBS

Watch a preview for The Millers after the jump.
