Show Time

With the abundance of TV channels on the ever-expanding dial, it’s no surprise that plenty of fledgling sitcoms don’t make a bleep on the average viewer’s must-watch radar. And unfortunately, having too many options results in great shows getting canceled. (Yeah, we’re still a little bitter about Better Off Ted.) But among all the ill-fated upstarts, Sullivan & Son seems like it has a fighting chance on TBS. That’s partially because it airs alongside Big Bang Theory reruns, and because TBS is a haven for beloved shows like Cougar Town that can’t quite cut it on a major broadcast network.

It also doesn’t hurt that the show’s cast is made up of a bunch of comedians. Four of them are showing off their skills on the cross-country Sullivan & Son Comedy Tour. See the sitcom's star Steve Byrne perform with Owen Benjamin, Roy Wood Jr., and Ahmed Ahmed.
