DESCRIPTION:
(from CBS's press release, August 2008) Sam Briggs is an entertainment magazine editor who will do anything to please his girlfriend's parents ... but instead becomes a one-man wrecking crew whenever he's around them. Sam and his girlfriend, Melanie Clayton, have only one hurdle left to clear as they start their life together: breaking the news to Mel's conservative parents that they have a wedding in the works and a baby on the way. Dick, a stern Judge, and his wife, Angela, are protective of their daughter, and are really trying to let go of the anger they feel toward Sam ... after all, disaster follows whenever he visits their house. But despite his best efforts, every time Sam takes one positive step forward in winning over his future in-laws, he inevitably takes two crushing steps back. But with support and love from Melanie who stands up for him despite his knack for making himself look bad, Sam will hopefully charm his way into her family.

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
· Erinn Hayes as Melanie Clayton
· Kurtwood Smith as Dick Clayton
· Kyle Bornheimer as Sam Briggs
· Nancy Lenehan as Angela Clayton
CREW INFORMATION:
· Adam Bernstein as DIR (Pilot)
· Jimmy Mulville as EP
· Matt Tarses as CRTR/EP[/quote:da892fa9d0]

Just watched the pilot, it wasnt great but there are a few funny moments. It has potential as its not milking one joke for what its worth *cough* Big Bang Theory *cough*.

British version was okay...but mainly because of the lead.

Ben Miller's a pretty great comic actor.

Has anyone watched this yet? It sounds like they are taking most of the first episode from the Worst Christmas of my Life episodes. Can anyone confirm?

The US version sounds pretty dire from most reports. The fans of Two and a Half Men seemed to enjoy it though. It's probably not for me then.
