TV show description:      
In this comedy series, Nathan Miller (Will Arnett) is a recent divorced local news reporter. He’s looking forward to living the life of a single man — until his parents’ marital problems unexpectedly derail his plans.

After Nathan breaks the news of his divorce to his parents — Carol (Margo Martindale) and Tom Miller (Beau Bridges) — his father is inspired to follow his lead. He stuns his family when he leaves his wife of 43 years.

Already in shock, Nathan is even more aghast when his vibrant but meddlesome mother decides to move in with him. Meanwhile, his absent-minded father decides to impose upon Nathan’s happily-married sister, Debbie (Jayma Mays), her husband Adam (Nelson Franklin), and their daughter Mikayla (Eve Moon).

Ray (JB Smoove), Nathan’s best friend and news cameraman, was excited to be Nathan’s wingman in the dating scene, but Carol manages to even cramp his style.

Now, as Nathan and his sister settle in with their truly impossible parents, they both wonder just how long the aggravating adjustment period is going to last.

    I hope CBS reconsiders renewing The Millers, it is the FUNNIEST series!!! I am SOOO disappointed to hear it may be cancelled!

  2. Mickey says

    Great ratings in the first season. In season two, they move the schedule, ratings go in the toilet and they cancel it after second episode airs, wow! Sad to see go.

  3. Bonnie says

    One of my favorite new shows. All they have is reality shows that I am sick of. When they finally get a good one they don’t give it a chance.

  4. Karen says

    I can not believe this show was cancelled.
    It was the one show that was genuinely funny…I loved the cast. They all were awesome.
    It is a great loss….
    So sad….

    So what are is CBS going to put on, another idiotic reality show? The Millers was a great comedy and I loved it. I’ve watched reality shows takeover some of my old favorites to a point that it is almost the only thing to watch. Please bring back the comedies and dramas and dump the reality and crime (12 versions of CSI, 8 versions of NCIS, etc, UGH). CBS, you started moving the right direction, why did you stop?

    So sad that the Millers TV sitcom was canceled. Was a fantastic show Very funny show. I looked forward to watching every week. I agree all the ****** shows go on and most of the good ones are taken off. Bring back the millers with original cast!!

    This show was truly funny and could not wait to watch it…What a disapointment to found out it’s been cancelled.

  8. connie says

    The Millers was the best comedy on TV and even though I like Sean, bringing him in the last season destroyed the chemistry of this funny funny show. Bring it back with the origenal cast and it will once again be a hit.

    I really liked this show. Seems that if its not a reality show, the networks get cheap and
    don’t give the shows a chance The McCarthy’s wasn’t consistently funny. Not surprised
    it got cancelled. I am sick to death of reality (scripted) shows. They are beyond stupid and some times crappy..
