A Minute With Stan Hooper

Show Summary

For ten years, "A Minute with Stan Hooper" has closed each episode of "Newsline," America's highest rated newsmagazine. In his "Minute" segments, Stan Hooper (Norm Macdonald, "Norm") has been telling real stories of real people that make up the fabric of America. But now Stan is making his "Minute" more honest. He no longer wants to comment on life from a studio in midtown Manhattan. He wants to live in the vanishing America he has been talking about for a decade - a place where ordinary people enjoy life's simple pleasures, where people have never heard of cappuccino. So, Stan and his wife Molly (Penelope Ann Miller, "The Closer") are moving to Waterford Falls, Wisconsin. Stan thinks this small town they passed through on their honeymoon 15 years ago is the embodiment of the old-fashioned values and idyllic lifestyle he has been championing in his "Minute" reports. Except that the house that Stan and Molly rent comes with a butler, Gary (Brian Howe). And the local cheese mogul, Fred Hawkins' (Fred Willard, "Maybe It's Me") son, Ryan (Eric Lively), who is dating a waitress, Chelsea (Reagan Dale Neis, "Maybe It's Me"), temporarily moves in with Stan and Molly. And that the two guys who own the local diner, Pete (Daniel Roebuck) and Lou Peterson (Garret Dillahunt), are a couple. Stan Hooper is a commentator on life, whose observations and insights will solve some problems while creating others.moreless
