Jeers: An Un-Welcome Return for Tambor

Jeffrey Tambor by Cliff Lipson/CBS

Jeers to Welcome to the Captain for wasting the talents of Jeffrey Tambor. The guy costarred in two of the greatest sitcoms of all time, Arrested Development (as felonious patriarch George Bluth and his hippie-dippie twin Oscar) and The Larry Sanders Show (as unctuous sidekick Hank Kingsley), but he's stranded in CBS' laugh-free new dud as washed-up ex-Three's Company writer "Uncle Saul."

And in CBS' new sitcom Welcome to the Captain (tonight at 8:30 pm/ET) — which features an odd assortment of tenants in a Hollywood apartment building — Tambor adds another eccentric to his canon as Uncle Saul, the Captain's good-hearted resident busybody. TV Guide: What attracted you to this sitcom?Jeffrey Tambor: I read the script and thought Uncle Saul was a lot of fun. He reminds me of every single one of my uncles and a lot of my father. I also like that it's one-camera, which I think is better for our times now. And I get to dress very comfortably, which is sort of selfish on my part. TV Guide: How often do people read more
