TNT: Men of a Certain Age

TNT (TV channel)Image via Wikipedia
TNT is hands down, one of my favorite channels.  Not only do they play my all time favorite show Charmed, several times of a day ~ they also come out with great new series as well.  The Closer and Dark Blue are two of my favorite TNT originals.  Now I believe, they have just came out with another soon to be favorite of mine.  Their newest creation is called Men of a Certain Age.  This isn't some off the wall show either, there are big names in the show.  The three main actors in the show are Ray Romano (Joe), Scott Bakula (Terry) and Andre Braugher (Owen).

I was sent a copy of the first episode that airs Monday December 7th to watch.  Let me tell you this show is funny.  I'm so excited for this series.  If you haven't seen the commercials yet, the show is basically about these 3 aging men.  I'm just going to take the show premace from TNT's website because they say it better then I do !

John Lennon once wrote, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” For three men entering the second act of their lives, those words are starting to hit home in TNT’s newest original series, MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE. This wry drama stars Emmy® winner Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), Golden Globe® winner Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise) and Emmy winner Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street, TNT’s Salem’s Lot). It marks a return to series television for Romano, who created MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE with Everybody Loves Raymond Emmy winner Mike Royce. The two serve as executive producers, along with Rory Rosegarten and Cary Hoffman.

MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE, from TNT Original Productions, is set to debut Monday, Dec. 7, at 10/9c, following an all-new episode of the network’s hit series THE CLOSER. The premiere episode is written by Romano and Royce and directed by two-time Emmy winner Scott Winant (thirtysomething).

MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE explores the unique bonds of male friendship among three men experiencing the changes and challenges of mid-life. They have been best friends since college but now, in their 40s, are navigating through the second act of their lives. Joe (Romano) is a friendly, slightly neurotic, recently separated father of two who had dreams of being a professional golfer. Now he owns and runs a party store. Terry (Bakula) is a laid-back, handsome actor who seems to breeze through life (and women). Lately, he’s spending more time working as a temp than as an actor. And Owen (Braugher) is an overstressed husband and father of three who endures constant criticism from his father, for whom he works as a car salesman.

These friends face very different challenges. Joe, who currently lives in a hotel, tries to connect with his kids and is dipping his toe in the dating pool, while also struggling with the gambling problem that may have ended his marriage. The unmarried Terry scoffs at domestic issues but sometimes wonders if his own single life is all it’s cracked up to be. Owen does everything he can to climb the sales board at his father’s car dealership and keep his cool over the seemingly endless renovation project in the home he can barely afford. Through it all, these men are there for each other when it counts.

I'm putting this show on my must watch list.  Woman view aging differently then men do.  I can't wait to see all the funny moments in these mens lives.  Knowing how funny Ray Romano is, this is sure to be a huge hit.  Plus I love Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap & Enterprise!). Another thing I like about this show ~ it is one that both men and woman should enjoy.  Sit down and relax with your hubby and get a few laughs out of aging :)

Men of a Certain Age will premier Monday December 7th at 10pm on TNT.  Check your local listings.  This is a must watch, I'm telling you.  Forget about your Christmas stress for a bit with Men of a Certain Age.
