Sullivan & Son, a new TBS original sitcom, premiered tonight.
Co-created by and starring Irish/Korean comedian Steve Byrne, and executive produced by Vince Vaughn, this show (along with Danny Masterson’s sitcom, Men At Work) is a nice change from the whole “Tyler Perry’s TBS” scene.
But my hatred for every Tyler Perry movie/sitcom can be discussed later…
This sitcom’s first episode centers around a lawyer, moving back from New York to Pittsburgh, taking over his dad’s old bar and realizing his girlfriend is a materialistic snob. Its a “gettingback to your roots” kind of show.
I must admit, it was weird seeing Byrne starring in a sitcom instead of on a Comedy Central special, but he was delightful.
Check out his show on TBS on Thursday nights at 10pm.
Do it. Unless you want to make him cry.
