Clearly this new showrunner (what a silly title) has dissected the classic American comedy All In The Family and is well on his way to try and recreate LMS as his version for the new era.
1. An ersatz Archie Bunker - check.
2. Likable wife who tolerates him somehow - check.
3. Gloria and Meathead in place now as sociopolitical foils for Mike - check.
4. Mike Stivic figure is not quite "American" in heritage - (his Canadian parents will have to do)
5. A new "movin' on up" African American couple move into the 'hood as mirrors to Mike & Vanessa - check.
6. Try bringing in a Latin American woman into the household under some premise - check.
It's a shame Sammy Davis, Jr. isn't around anymore to drop in and plant a nice big kiss on Tim Allen one day. Never mind, just turn Vanessa's sister into a cousin Maude type and spin off a new series.
