TBS Renews Sullivan & Son, Men at Work, and Deal With It

Though TBS would be totally cool with airing The Big Bang Theory repeats 24/7, it still feels the need to stay in the original programming game and has decided to renew a few of its comedies. The network has ordered a third season of both Sullivan & Son and Men at Work, as well as a second season of hidden-camera prank show Deal With It. It's okay if your reaction to that last sentence was, "Huh?," "Really?," and "What now?"

Sullivan & Son will return for its third season next summer with 13 brand-new episodes. The series stars Steve Byrne as a half-Korean, half-white bar owner in Pittsburgh who hangs out with his buddies and deals with his parents. I have not seen it, but if any of you have, please write a 20-word review in the comments and I'll put it right here. Seriously. Do it! 

Men at Work will be back sooner, returning for its third season in early 2014 with 10 new episodes. Danny Masterson (That '70s Show) stars as one of four dudes working at a "lad mag" and trying to get in chicks' pants. It was created by Breckin Meyer, Mr. Bash himself. Or is he Mr. Franklin? 

Finally, Deal With It will be back in 2014 with 10 new episodes. The show challenges regular people to prank their friends with no time to prepare. The participants receive instructions through a hidden earpiece, and the further they get, the more cash they make. There, now you can say you've seen the show!

What do you think of these renewals? And don't forget to write up your 20-word reviews of Sullivan & Son and put them in the comments for a chance to win instant TV.com stardom!

I love Sullivan and Son. We are all different races, albeit human, and we have to learn to laugh at ourselves and our different quirks. I like that none are offended because being friends is more important than the actions that make us different and interesting.

An equal opportunity offender, Sullivan & Son, takes stabs at all races, religions, & credos to dispel the myth of political correctness

Sullivan & Son a show breast-fed on the sitcom teat into its teen years directly appeals to lovers of classic tv.

Sullivan & Son is about the closest thing to an All in the Family remake on tv right now. Watch It!

TBS has always had poor choices. It's either this "original" programming or reruns of TBBT or Family Guy. I just made a sound between "bleh" and a sigh. I can't really put that into one word. but there ya go.

"Really?" is the reaction I had to the whole thing, followed by "uh... what are those?"

Meyer is indeed Franklin in the "&" equation.

Review: Sullivan & Son is a show on TBS. I have not seen a single ad for it, which is telling.

Men at Work might not be the be all end all for comedy but it's a whole hell of a lot better than some of the comedies on network tv right now. it has it's moments. (also he's Mr. Franklin.)

all I have to say about the other two is that I still won't be watching... just like I don't watch their reruns of The Big Bang Theory.. or anything else other than Men at Work and Cougar Town and the occasional Conan and Friends rerun.

The show plays like a B-rate version of Cheers, only instead of shouting "Norm!" the characters just shout racist Asian stereotypes.

Sullivan and Son is a show that relies heavily on race humor to a degree.
