The "Very Funny" cable network burned off the whopping nine-episode season of its sly charmer about Chicago sportswriter PJ (Jordana Spiro) and her pals on Sundays opposite such sky-high-profile cable competition as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Mad Men — whose costar Joel Murray, aka rehabbed alky Freddy Rumsen, guested on Boys as the owner who sold the gang's hangout, Crowley's, to Brando (Reid Scott) in the season finale.
What was My Boys star Jamie Kaler's first TV role? A guy "way too old to be hitting it" on Saved by the Bell: The New Class. Kaler and co-star Michael Bunin stopped by TVGuide.com during their current comedy tour to tell us more about their humble beginnings — which may have included porn — and how a table read during the first season led to a romance in Season 4, which premieres Sunday at 10/9c on TBS.

This week in "The Shirt Contest" (airing Thursday at 9;30 pm/ET), the Boys get embroiled in another one of their competitive moods. Let's just say Project Runway comes to Chicago. It was really fun shooting this one. I got to show a little more flesh than normal. As a redhead, it's always great to show the world a little more of my pasty white skin (note the heavy sarcasm). I'm almost as white as Jim Gaffigan, but my skin is covered with freckles and red fur. All of you redheads out there know what I mean. Nudity is not one of our strong suits. Even if I was Mr. Olympia, people would still scream, "Put your shirt back on. You're burning my eyes out!" It would be nice to go to the beach without wearing SPF Infinity!OK, enough of the "ginger" talk. It's depressing me, and when you see my bare skin this week, just remember that I didn't write the episode. It wasn't my choice for you to see my bare flesh. I am merely a pawn in a greater scheme. And at this point, I think the writers are...
Ahhhhhhhhh, My Boys is back! Yes, I know the answer to the question that has been hounding us all since we last saw you. Who is on the plane? And the answer is still what we all knew last season
Not me! Thats all I can tell you or I will be killed. I don't think any of you will want the surprise ruined anyway
except for you sick, instant gratification types who will sneak a peek under the wrapping on your Christmas presents two weeks before the actual date. But I think youll be pleasantly surprised.I would like to use this forum to address another issue concerning this matter. As some of you may or may not know, I am a stand-up comic and have been performing around the country during our hiatus. And everywhere I go, you have all told me who youd like to have on the plane. "I like Thorn, that Jeremy Sisto is such a real man. "I like the baseball player. Hes rich and dreamy. A couple of you nerdy tech types even wan...
This week on TBS' My Boys, we take a trip to the 'burbs to see where Andy (played by Jim Gaffigan) lives. A potential nightmare for the boys, they decide it could be a good opportunity to meet some suburban chicks. This episode was shot at the Warner Ranch. The backyard was used for many years by The Partridge Family (just a piece of nostalgia for those of you old enough to remember). The Warner Ranch was fun because you are shooting on the same street with the houses of Dennis the Menace and Sergeant Murtaugh from Lethal Weapon. We got Gary Busey to reenact the fight in the front yard. No, we didn't that would be ridiculous. Cool, but ridiculous. We get to see the guys push each other aside or sell each other out to meet these girls. Bobby can't seem to find the place, but the guys keep thinking they see him at the BBQ. The BBQ is filled with kids. And if a hot girl has a kid, well then Mike (Jamie Kaler) figures the best approach is to show her he's good with kids. Jamie wa...
Hey, all. So, we just wrapped shooting for the season, and we had a blast! We've got some great new episodes ready to roll out this summer, very excited. I was just talking to Jim Gaffigan, Mike Bunin and Jamie Kaler, and we were all saying how much fun we had shooting the latest installments of TBS' My Boys. Maybe it was all the caffeine and booze, but I seriously don't think I've ever laughed as hard as I did working with these guys. We had some great guest stars, we brought back our favorite directors, and basically just kept on doin' what we did last year, only more of it. Think you're really gonna dig the new stuff. Hope you're all looking forward to the new episodes as much as I am. See you Monday, July 30, at 10pm/ET!
Hey again I hope you all enjoyed the first two episodes of My Boys and are waiting with baited breath for another installment. Well, let the hour-by-hour countdown begin because Tuesday is finally here! Thinking about the first of this week's episodes (Episode 102: "Team Chemistry"), I immediately go to this one scene at the bar (go figure) where Kenny (Mike Bunin) and Mike (Jamie Kaler) are having a tiff. Mike is jealous because Kenny is spending more and more time with Bobby (Kyle Howard). They actually improvised a lot of that scene. The dialogue was very funny as it was, but they just kept building on it. They seemed to make it snarkier with each take until they ended it on Bunin's ad-libbed line, "Drink until you like yourself," and Kaler's response, "That's a lot of drinks." Jamie and Mike are great improvisers together. Mike has been a regular performer at the Improv Olympic West for eight years. You can actually catch his show every Saturday night if you are in ...
Jordana Spiro, My Boys
TBS, well-known for keeping the bawdy memory of Carrie Bradshaw & Co. alive via frequent reruns, now has a twist on Sex and the City to call its own: My Boys, premiering tonight (at 10 pm/ET) and starring Jordana Spiro as PJ Franklin, a Chicago Cubs beat reporter whose circle of friends is primarily fellas. (Think Alfonso Soriano as opposed to Manolo Blahnik.) TVGuide.com asked the actress what it's like to "step up to the plate" as the star of TBS' first-ever original scripted comedy series.
TVGuide.com: So, is the pressure on? You feelin' it?Jordana Spiro: [Laughs] You know, I'm not feeling pressure, no. I'm definitely feeling busier than I felt before, but not pressure.
TVGuide.com: Let's say that PJ is 99 percent tomboy. What about yourself?Spiro:
