“Growing Up Fisher” – premieres TONIGHT on NBC

Growing Up Fisher on NBC

Now that the Olympics are concluding, a lot of the networks will be premiering new shows for the second half of the season.

Get ready for NBC’s premiere of a new hit comedy “Growing Up Fisher every Tuesday. The series begins tonight – Sunday, February 23, 2014 at 10:38 p.m. ET/PT following the Olympics closing ceremonies, and it’s guaranteed to be a new family favorite!  I have seen the commercials and it is on my WATCH LIST for sure.

This new television series is comedic, semi-real, and might resemble an autobiography about your own family. The story follows eleven-year-old, Henry Fisher (Eli Baker), and his atypical family, his parents’ divorce, and the arrival of his blind father’s guide dog, Elvis (Peyton). If a dog named after a musical legend isn’t enough to get you hooked, we have more about “Growing Up Fisher” HERE.

I have always liked JK Simmons from Law & Order back in the day and more recently as Chief Pope on The Closer and I look forward to his comedic portrayal of a blind dad.  The ex-wife is none other than Jenna Elfman – hello Darma & Greg from way back and recently 1600 Penn.  My guess is the son and the dog will do a lot of scene stealing.

Are you going to watch?

Happy Father’s Day to all those dad’s, almost dad’s, father figures (you are just as important!) who love us, play with us, keep us safe and above all, make us laugh!

I think this photo montage from AwkwardFamilyPhotos says it all!

BUT really dad, we just want you to know we LOVE YOU because YOU are YOU! Emmy says it all HERE.
