10 New Shows We're Worried About After Upfronts 2012
'Elementary,' 'The Neighbors' and 'Mob Doctor' are among the shows that have us on edge
'Guys with Kids'
"Guys with Kids" (NBC)
Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m.
Why we're worried: The track record for traditional multi-cam sitcoms on every network other than CBS has been so bad in recent years that it was noteworthy when NBC actually renewed "Whitney." All the promotional materials suggest the show is taking the hackneyed, "ZOMG! Isn't it hilarious when men try to act as parents to THEIR OWN KIDS?!?!?!" approach.
Why it could still end up OK: Though his best TV work has been in dramas, Anthony Anderson made his bones as a comic actor. Co-star Tempestt Bledsoe spent her childhood learning how to act in multi-cam sitcoms from a guy named Bill Cosby.
