Parenthood Premieres on NBC Tuesday Night

TV Tonight: Parenthood

Ensemble drama Parenthood has endured a long road of trials and tribulations, mainly due to original star Maura Tierney's illness and subsequent replacement by Lauren Graham. At long last, the show is finally getting its coming out party with tonight's premiere on NBC.

The hourlong pilot introduces you to the four grown Braverman siblings and each of their children, significant others, and issues. Graham plays Sarah, a struggling single mother to two rebelling teens who finds herself having to move back in with her parents in Berkeley. Conveniently, the rest of the family also lives there: older brother Adam (Peter Krause), whose son may have Asperger's Syndrome, younger sister Julia (Erika Christensen), a career woman who's worried about bonding with her young daughter, and delightfully immature Crosby (Dax Shepard), whose girlfriend is ready to have a baby, with or without him.

There's a lot of ground to cover at first, but the likable characters and mile-a-minute problems are all poised to draw you in. I'll be tuning in for the great cast and excellent writing — will you?

I have been waiting for this show for a while now! I love Peter Krause and a lot of the other people involved with the show, so I was upset when Tierney got sick and it didn't premiere in the fall. Needless to say, I'm excited!

I just set my Tivo to record it via the internets (such a cool feature!). I had seen tons of previews during the Olympics so I'm interested - I love Lauren Graham.

This has potential. It seems like Lauren Graham will be channeling what made her so likable in Gilmore Girls, so it's worth a watch, at least!
