Guys with Kids “Thanksgiving” Episode 9 airs Wednesday, November 21 on NBC (8:30-9:00 p.m. ET).
Episode Synopsis: After a failed attempt to figure out who should spend Thanksgiving with their son, Chris (Jesse Bradford) and Sheila (Erinn Hayes) decide to spend the holiday together with his friends. Sheila plans a very traditional dinner in hopes of befriending the group. Elsewhere, Gary (Anthony Anderson) choses to spend the holiday waiting in line to buy a brand new television during the Black Friday sales. Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Zach Cregger and Tempestt Bledsoe also star.
Show Summary: Balancing work or staying at home, happily married or happily divorced, taking care of the “littles,” while maintaining a social life is a daily challenge. Whether it’s hosing down their babies in the kitchen sink or hitting the bar strapped with “babybjörns,” these guys are taking on fatherhood in ways no one has ever seen before. Nick and Gary’s wives — Emily (Jamie-Lynn Sigler, “The Sopranos”) and Marny (Tempestt Bledsoe, “The Cosby Show”)–as well as Chris’s ex-wife Sheila (Erinn Hayes “Children’s Hospital)–also offer their own parenting advice.
Dads today are more involved in their kids’ lives than ever, and these guys are no exception. No tantrum is too loud, no diaper is too dirty — Nick, Chris and Gary are up to the challenge.
