    I was skeptical at first, but after watching a few of the episodes (I admit I haven't seen too many) this is not only a hit, but a bull's eye. I love the ensemble cast mode (think "cheers") but it's also good to see Dan Lauria back on TV, and having a lot of good lines to say. Some would say it is stereotypical and racist, but I don't see it that way. After all, compared to "All In The Family", "the Jeffersons", and lately, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", this is not really offensive. What makes it work is the combination of Steve Sullivan (Byrne)'s straight bar manager persona, combined with Jodi Long's hilarious Korean mom's personality. Add to that, Dan Lauria's easy going but funny father in law, and the amazingly gorgeous Vivian Bang as the sister, and Brian Doyle-Murray's insult throwing Hank, and it really makes you want to watch. Not only that, they have great guest stars on most of the episodes, (again, see "Cheers"), and it absolutely works. It can be offensive, incorrect, and degrading at times, but never gets as difficult to watch as "Always Sunny", and contrary to that show, the cast look like they are enjoying it all. I look forward to all of the new episodes, and so far, have not been disappointed. This is good comedy compared to most of the garbage we get today. The biggest reason to FUNNY! Thank you, TBS.moreless

    Lot's of laughs, reminiscent of Cheers. I know it's cheesy, somewhat predictable but it never fails to make me laugh. The cast is great, love the non politically correct jokes [Hey US lighten up].

    Don't get me wrong. Sullivan & Son tries, and sort of succeeds. I mean its jokes are funny, but my problem is every damn joke is a one liner. 99 percent of every joke you hear is a one liner. The characters are loud and annoying, and often come across as douchey. The setting is very similar to cheers and it tries to be like Friends, but the characters in Friends were likable, one just cannot connect with these charactersmoreless
  • same trash different actors

    1.0
    another non comedy for low brows. This weak attempt at a reboot of Cheers fails. Not funny and pathetic that this is the best we can get.
