Those who watch enough television know that there is more to quality programming than what is just on major networks and premium cable. In fact, if one digs enough, one might just find that little-known gem that proves itself worthy enough of watching on a regular basis. One of those shows? TBS' My Boys.
TBS is still trying to get a foothold on the original programming game, but one show proving that the network can get it done is the comedy My Boys. The program will continue to do so, as TBS has officially given My Boys a third season.
Jim Gaffigan may not be the biggest household name in show business, but he's cut his teeth in the industry for a lot longer than most people. A comic-turned-actor (but still comic at heart), Gaffigan has been doing stand-up comedy since the early 1990s. Anyone who has watched television over the last decade will also recognize his face from numerous commercials, including a hilarious campaign for the soft drink Sierra Mist.
Gaffigan now plays Andy on the TBS comedy My Boys, a "real" show (Gaffigan's words) that follows a female sportswriter and her guy friends in Chicago. TV.com caught up with the actor to discuss the program, working on a new show for a network that doesn't do too much original programming, and drinking on the job.
