Back in the Game: Is the ABC Sitcom Worth Watching?

Back in the Game on ABCTonight, ABC is unveiling their third new sitcom of the season, Back in the Game. This one has has a great timeslot, nestled in between The Middle and Modern Family. Will it be a new Wednesday night hit or will it be cancelled like many others? Is it worth watching?

On Back in the Game, a single mother named Terry (Maggie Lawson) and her young misfit son (Griffin Gluck) move in with her gruff father (James Caan).

She’s a former All-Star softball player and her dad is a beer-guzzling, opinionated couch potato. When Terry’s son gets rejected from the little league team, she gets talked into coaching a new team.

Others in the cast are Lenora Crichlow, Ben Koldyke, Kennedy Waite, J.J. Totah, Cooper Roth, and Brandon Salgado.

What do you think? Based on the description and what you’ve heard, will you be giving Back in the Game a try? If you’ve already seen the show, will you watch again?

    My husband and I love this show! James Caan is perfect for that part. I really hope they keep this one. It is so funny! It is a welcome change from shows about sexually charged teenagers, doctors, murderers and so called ‘reality shows’. Please keep this one!

    Love this show. The Cannon is the next Al Bundy. Yes it’s a bit crass but I haven’t laughed like this at a sitcom since the first few episodes of Modern Family. I hope ABC keeps this show as the writing is good and James Caan is very funny!

    This show is HORRIBLE. It’s so inappropriate, especially nestled between 2 family comedies. There is so much sexual innuendo, I’m disgusted – and it’s crass. These things don’t normally bother me…but this is HORRIBLE – it’s just mean spirited and negative…all the while centered around a group of kids. HORRIBLE!!!
