Wednesdays at 8:30 between The Middle and Modern Family starting this week

Quote:
Single father George only wants the best for his 16-year-old daughter, Tessa. So when he finds a box of condoms on her nightstand, he moves them out of their apartment in New York City to a house in the suburbs. But all Tessa sees is the horror of over-manicured lawns and plastic Franken-moms. Being in the 'burbs can be hell, but it also may just bring Tessa and George closer than they've ever been.

Tessa (Jane Levy) and George (Jeremy Sisto) have been on their own ever since Tessa's mom pulled a "Kramer vs. Kramer" before she was even potty trained. So far, George has done a pretty good job of raising Tessa without a maternal figure in their lives, but suddenly he's feeling a little out of his league. So it's goodbye New York City and hello suburbs. At first Tessa is horrified by the big-haired, fake-boobed mothers and their sugar-free Red Bull-chugging kids. But little by little she and her dad begin finding a way to survive on the clean streets of the 'burbs. Sure, the neighbors might smother you with love while their kids stare daggers at your back, but underneath all that plastic and caffeine, they're really not half bad. And they do make a tasty pot roast.

The show stars Jeremy Sisto (Law & Order) as George Altman, Jane Levy (Shameless) as Tessa Altman, Carly Chaikin (The Last Song) as Dalia Royce, Allie Grant (Weeds) as Lisa, Alan Tudyk (Firefly) as Noah Lerner and Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm) as Dallas Royce. Ana Gasteyer (Saturday Night Live) guest stars.

Emily Kapnek (Hung) writes and executive-produces this bitingly ironic single-camera comedy. "Suburgatory" was directed by Michael Fresco ("Raising Hope"), who also executive-produced the pilot. It is produced by Warner Bros. Television.

Yerp, exactly. Not to mention that Cheryl Hines looks fucking great.

Just watched the pilot. The main girl is a young Emma Stone, to a t.

EDIT: I should also say that while I enjoyed it, I didn't laugh much. I can see this turning into a really good show once it finds its niche.

EW said the same thing about Emma, a little like Ellen Page too

Hopefully this is good, if so Wednesdays on ABC would be my favorite night/network combo on TV.

I'm actually going to check this show out. I don't watch much TV, and it seems when I do start a new show, it either quickly goes to the wayside or I watch it through to the end. I need a new, great show, and this one seems really interesting. I hope it doesn't suck.

Wow, the dad definitely has changed since "Clueless".
