Rock Me Baby

Show Summary

Rock Me Baby is a fun, irreverent look at relationships and parenthood as seen through the eyes of Jimmy Cox (Dan Cortese, "Veronica's Closet"), a hip, flagrant shock jock. Jimmy lives for the adrenaline rush he gets from his outrageous behavior, but discovers his life is turned upside down when he and his mostly understanding wife welcome a new baby. Jimmy, the proudly provocative morning radio show DJ, had been on a roll, pushing the outside of the envelope of irreverence. Barely slowed down by his marriage to the cute and funny Beth (Bianca Kajlich, "Halloween: Resurrection"), he is thrown abruptly into reverse when his bouncing baby boy Otis arrives. The on-air party animal has a dilemma: if he makes fun of his home life, he gets in trouble with Beth. If he talks about how warm and fuzzy he feels being a new dad, he gets in trouble with Carl (Carl Anthony Payne, "Martin," "The Cosby Show"), his partner, and Boyle (Joey Slotnick, "Alias"), his boss (who was later replaced by Patrick Breen as Richard Crandall), all of whom are worried about ratings. As Jimmy settles in, perhaps a little uneasily, to his new responsibilities as a parent, expect him to confidently uphold his wild-man status with plenty of energy left over for his goofy but genuine love for Beth, baby Otis and their eccentric friends. Beth's best friend, Pam Gibson (Tammy Townsend, "Grown Ups," "Days of Our Lives"), is an aspiring singer who lives next-door to the Cox's; Kevin (Lex Medlin) is the goofy guy who works at the radio station with Jimmy and Carl; Steve (Oded Gross) and Kelly (Ken Marino, "Men Behaving Badly (US)," "The State") are a gay couple who the Cox's are friends with.moreless
