Guys with Kids “Marny’s Dad” Episode 12 airs Wednesday, January 9 on NBC (8:30-9:00 p.m. ET).
Episode Synopsis: When Gary (Anthony Anderson) learns of his father-in-law’s (guest star Ernie Hudson) disdain for him, he is willing to do whatever it takes to earn his respect. Elsewhere, with Chris’ (Jesse Bradford) love life in a rut, he goes on a date with Shelia (Erinn Hayes), prompting a horrified Nick (Zach Cregger) and Emily (Jamie-Lynn Sigler) to try their hand at matchmaking. Unfortunately their good will quickly turns into a competition at Chris’ expense. Tempestt Bledsoe also stars.
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.
