Spring TV: Family Comedies

Spring TV: Family Comedies

Half of these family comedies look decent. It’s nice to see Tracy Jordan on tv again, especially since I’ve been rewatching 30 RockThe Last O.G. is created by Jordan Peele and also stars Tiffany Haddish so it has a lot of good things going for it. Splitting Up Together has a silly premise and I’m not sure all the characters work, but I do like watching Jenna Fischer in a television series again. The child actor in Champions seems very annoying so I don’t know if I can even try to watch that. Zach Braff is older, but still seems to be playing the same character from Scrubs in his new show Alex, Inc. I have found that what I once thought was adorable with him really grates on my nerves now.

    I’m giving Jenna Fischer’s show one more week, and I’ve got the Tracey Morgan recorded. I wanted to strangle the kid in Champions.
