My Boys by Ben Watts/TBS
Cheers to TV's most underrated comedy:
. In its just-completed second season, TBS' sitcom about a Chicago sportswriter (Jordana Spiro) and her gaggle of pals wisely cut back on the hackneyed sports-metaphor voiceovers and focused on its strength: an ensemble with genuine,
-level chemistry. With the exception of standup genius Jim Gaffigan (who plays Spiro's goofy brother), none of the actors were previously familiar to me. But with their snappy timing and breezy camaraderie, they've become great TV company. If
were on CBS, it'd be a
How I Met Your Mother
-sized hit. Instead, it's still waiting for a third-season order. Time to step up to the plate, TBS.
