I love this show. But I'm a 49 year old guy. This show gives a good peek into what guys my age are going through. It's not too reflective of my life but I know guys that are going through the exact things the characters are going through.
My question is: Will a show about middle aged guys make it when it seems that all of tv entertainment is gearing toward women and young people?
Yeah I'm being a pessimist, but I can't help it. Everything on tv seems to be for women and young people. All the reality shows and the heavy handed dramas have turned me off. It's getting to the point where all I watch are home improvement shows and the news. Even my favorite sci fi tv franchise, Stargate, has created a show that looks more like One Tree Hill or 90210 than a sci fi show. ABC had a good comedy called Carpoolers and I made a comment to my wife how this show was about working men and the relationships between male friends and it was cancelled after 13 episodes. It didn't have enough women and young people watching.
I'm going to be a fan of Men of a Certain Age, but I don't have a good feeling about it sticking around. I hope I'm wrong.
