Tonight's episodes of Sons & Daughters [starting at 9 pm/ET on ABC] will tease, titillate, and traumatize you.
First up is "House Party," written by Jordana Arkin and directed by Bob Berlinger. Prepare yourself for some outrageous behavior when Don and Sharon (Alison Quinn) decide to get away from it all by spicing up their love life at a motel. When the cat's away the mice will play, and Jeff takes full advantage of the missing-parent situation to throw himself a little house party that turns big in a hurry. Christine Lakin is back as Sydney, Jeff's attractive yoga-loving girlfriend. Concerned, Carrie (Eden Sher, who gets her braces off this summer) calls her Uncle Cameron (Fred Gossread more
Well, this blog has taken my celebrity to new heights. I simply didn't anticipate the extraordinary interest millions of readers would take in the random thoughts of me, a modest journeyman-actor-turned-huge-ABC-television-star.

Sons & DaughtersIt was another double-shot Tuesday night for Cameron and his crazy family. The first episode reminded me never to borrow money from my siblings. On one hand, when it comes to family, there's no financial interest to pay. But it's the "emotional interest" that kills you. Borrowing $1,500 from Sharon meant Cameron had to sit through Don's pathetic play and work concessions during intermission. If you've never witnessed a painful performance by a friend (let alone a brother-in-law), trust me, you'd rather be in debt up to your eyeballs.
Sharon (played by Alison Quinn), by the way, is seriously stealing this show. Not only is she the most hilarious deadpan character ever, I looked up her biread more
