  'OUTMATCHED' SITCOM
STARTS JANUARY 23RD AT FOX
What better way to cheer you up on Monday than with some comedy: we finish our announcements of new TV comedies with OUTMATCHED which starts airing January 23rd as the new sidekick to Tim Allen's Last Man
Outmatched starts January 23rd on Fox
Standing at Fox on Thursday evenings. It is a multi camera sitcom about a blue collar couple in Atlantic City trying to raise four kids - three of whom just happen to be certified geniuses.

It's Dumb Luck They've Got Such Smart Kids
For most parents, parenting is hard. But for Kay (Maggie Lawson), a caustic, take-no-prisoners casino pit boss, and husband Mike (Jason Biggs), a handyman and uncultivated guy's guy, parenting may as well be advanced calculus. Dealing with the demands and egos of three high-IQ children would be tricky for any parent,

but it's especially hazardous for two working stiffs who barely got through high school. Mike and Kay are committed to bringing some normalcy to their kids' hectic, unconventional childhoods, but these geniuses don't make it easy.

Leading the charge is Brian (Connor Kalopsis), a condescending and pretentious 16-year-old math whiz, who thinks he already knows more about the world than Mike and Kay ever will, even though he's never actually been out of New Jersey. His 15-year-old sister, Nicole (Ashley Boettcher), is a

Additionally, the couple's childhood friends, Rita (Tisha Campbell) and Irwin (Finesse Mitchell), provide a sounding board for their daily parenting struggles.

  1. What a cute idea for a show! Jason Biggs can be very funny in the right situations. I’d tune in. :)

    1. I hope he is better than in the trailer, because in it he seems to be the weakest link.

    2. In all his past roles, he’s typically the guy that’s nervous or down on something. I guess we could say he is the pessimist. He seems to be the same here.

      I still laugh at the scene of a movie with him where he’s getting a hair cut and they accidentally shave off his entire eyebrow! The face he makes as he tries to find his missing eyebrow was unforgettable!

    3. I mostly remember him for his porn photos and videos with his wife, they are a very horny couple LOL

  2. We watch "Young Sheldon" and that's enough of genius kid with ordinary parents for us.

    1. I haven't watched that one as I've always found Bing Bang Theory ghastly boring.

  3. I don't love Biggs, but this one looks like it's worth tuning in for. I had a hard enough time dealing with one crazy smart child, I can't imagine the pressure of raising 4 geniuses!

    1. Sorry for my lateness here. For some reason, blogger won't accept comments from my iPad again, so I have to log onto my computer to comment now. Stupid blogger :(

    2. He is definitely very bad in the trailer, sitcoms require a kind, expressive, funny face, he looks like he does not care for anything half the time. Is captcha working here at my place? I don't see it myself.

    3. I don't see captcha here. Did you turn it off? It's letting my comments go through without moderation now. Is your spammer gone?

    4. The psycho one yes, but I still get a few linky/dinky ones a week :) I don't know why word verification ain't working, it is on.

    5. Maybe I'm just special because it knows I'm a regular here ;)

    6. I've no idea, I don't see it anymore at Debrah's place either.

  4. Interesting premise. Not sure there's enough there to carry a series like that. Kids may enjoy watching other kids mock and manipulate their parents. Not sure adults would.

    1. It is very typical for millennials to think they are smarter than they parents, just look at that little brat Greta, or Harry and his idiotic bratty wify MeAgain.
