With ABC's freshman comedy The Goldbergs (Tuesdays, 9/8c, ABC), he finally gets his chance. Set in the 1980s, The Goldbergs stars Sean Giambrone as 11-year-old Adam, with Curb Your Enthusiasm's Jeff Garlin and Bridemaids' Wendi McLendon-Covey playing his TV parents, Murray and Beverly...

When it comes to heavy lifting, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is being asked to flex more than its share of muscle. Leading off an entire night of new ABC programming (always a risk, especially in these fragmented times), taking on TV's top-rated drama (NCIS), satisfying the expectations of Marvel Comics fans and Joss Whedon's considerable cult following, that's a lot for any spin-off to live up to, even with source material like The Avengers.
Jeff Garlin, George Segal, Wendi McLendon-Covey
Break out your leg warmers and cassette tapes! The Goldbergs is taking you back to the '80s.
The new retro, Wonder Years-esque ABC comedy (premieresTuesday, 9/8c) follows the titular — and very loud — clan, headed by mom Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) and dad Murray (Jeff Garlin), who puts the "fun" in dysfunctional — all while 11-year-old Adam (Sean Giambrone) films the family's exploits. Patton Oswalt narrates from the future as an adult Adam.

Retired at 35
When it came time to lure George Segal back to primetime television for TV Land's new sitcom Retired at 35, he had two mandates: his character would have to smoke cigars and play the banjo.
"I said [it was that] or no dice," the industry veteran, 76, joked Wednesday at the Television Critics Assn.'s winter preview session.
Added series creator and executive producer Chris Case: "There was no banjo in the original pilot script until George came on board. It's so collaborative, this medium. You go, you know what George Segal plays the banjo. Let's do that."
