Man With a Plan (CBS) -- Series Thread -- S: Matt LeBlanc



GOLDEN GLOBE AWARD WINNER MATT LEBLANC STARS AS A CONTRACTOR WHO STARTS SPENDING MORE TIME WITH HIS KIDS WHEN HIS WIFE GOES BACK TO WORK AND DISCOVERS THE TRUTH ALL PARENTS EVENTUALLY REALIZE - THEIR LITTLE ANGELS ARE MANIACS - ON THE SERIES PREMIERE OF THE NEW COMEDY "MAN WITH A PLAN," MONDAY, OCT. 24

Matt LeBlanc, Liza Snyder, Kevin Nealon, Diana Maria Riva, Jessica Chaffin, Matt Cook, Grace Kaufman, Matthew McCann and Hala Finley Star

"Pilot" - Golden Globe Award winner Matt LeBlanc stars as Adam, a contractor who starts spending more time with his three kids when his wife, Andi, goes back to work and discovers the truth all parents eventually realize - their little angels are maniacs - on the series premiere of the new comedy MAN WITH A PLAN, Monday, Oct. 24, (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT), on the CBS Television Network.

Adam feels fully equipped to take on more parenting responsibilities while his self-assured wife returns to the work force after being a stay-at-home mom for 13 years. However, Adam's blindsided by how tough it is to wrangle three messy kids who can't live without Wi-Fi. Their preteen daughter, Kate, is a master manipulator and initially thrilled that "daddy fun times" are taking over; middle child Teddy can't seem to keep his hands out of his pants despite constant reminders; and their precious youngest, Emme, is nervous about starting kindergarten under the stern supervision of Mrs. Rodriguez. In the midst of it all, Adam's older brother and business partner, Don, enjoys giving him terrible advice about how to run his family. But, with Andi's encouragement and advice from a couple of equally stressed parents, Marie and Lowell, Adam takes charge of his brood, lays down the law and discovers he's going to "nail" this job.

Matt LeBlanc (Adam Burns)
Liza Snyder (Andi Burns)
Kevin Nealon (Don Burns)
Diana Maria Riva (Mrs. Rodriguez)
Jessica Chaffin (Marie Faldonado)

Why do they keep giving Joey and Chandler prime time slots?

Probably the little known show that ran 10 years or so. The name escapes me...

Jenna Fischer was in the original Pilot as LeBlanc's wife. Too bad she was replaced. I like her.

Here's the original trailer from last May on YouTube, you'll see the footage with her.

This wasn't groundbreaking or really anything special, but I kinda liked it. Had a few laughs and was enjoyable as a whole. Will at least watch until it gets cancelled...

We just finished it, some funny one liners. Wife and I laughed outloud a few times. We'll keep watching for now.

This show is tons better than the other show with the chubby mom.

Kids are funny and the mom isn't a terrible human being with a weird voice.
This is what Kevin can Wait should have been.

Thought it was pretty good. Certainly could develop into something. Already much better than Odd Couple and American Mom

I wonder if she just signed on to film the pilot or she wanted out after or she was let go.

Apparently after CBS's president screened the Pilot, he didn't think she was the right fit for the show and lacked chemistry with LeBlanc.

Weird. I thought that exact thing about the actress they ended up using. She doesn't seem to fit with Joey.

Wasn't she on the sitcom years ago Yes Dear? Wasn't a big fan of her there either. Speaking of Yes Dear, whatever happened to Anthony Clark?

Jenna Fischer would have been much better.

This is not a good show, and yet I really like it. I think it is better than Kevin Can Wait and that the wife on the show does have chemistry with Matt LeBlanc, so while I agree that in theory Jenna Fischer sounds like she would make a better TV wife...something must have truly been lacking during Jenna's and Matt's time together on-screen.
