ABC Sets Midseason Premieres for ‘How to Live with Your Parents’ and ‘Family Tools’
ABC just released its midseason schedule today, which will see the premiere of two new sitcoms, How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) and Family Tools. How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life), which won a competition with ABC’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 for most absurdly-long TV show title, kicks off in the cushy post-Modern Family slot, Wednesdays at 9:30pm, on April 3rd. The sitcom stars Sarah Chalke as a single mother who moves back in with her parents (Brad Garrett and Elizabeth Perkins), bringing her daughter (Rachel Eggleston) along for the ride. Comedian Jon Dore is also a cast member. ABC’s other midseason comedy, Family Tools, will debut at 8:30 on Wednesdays on May 1st. Based on the British sitcom White Van Man, Family Tools stars Perfect Couples‘ Kyle Bornheimer as a guy taking over his father’s (J.K. Simmons) handyman business after he’s diagnosed with a heart condition. Leah Remini and Johnny Pemberton also star. May’s a long time away, so it gives you plenty of time to catch up on the original British series’ 12 episodes so that, when the show premieres, you can self-righteously complain that the American version isn’t as good and impress your friends.
