First Look: CBS’ WORST WEEK – Pictures & Videos

Worst Week - Melanie Clayton (Erinn Hayes), Angela (Nancy Lenehan), and Sam Briggs (Kyle Bornheimer)

Now that we have learned a little more about CBS’ new primetime schedule, it’s time to take a closer look at all of their new shows, next up WORST WEEK.

Worst Week could be very funny, I mean just the fact that Kurtwood Smith (whom you might remember as Red from That 70’s Show) is part of the cast already bodes well. The premise sounds full of potential and from the look of the videos below, I am curious to see more from Worst Week.

Synopsis: Worst Week is a comedy about Sam Briggs, an entertainment magazine editor who will do anything to please his girlfriend’s parents … but instead becomes a one-man wrecking crew whenever he’s around them. Sam (Kyle Bornheimer, “Jericho”) and his girlfriend, Melanie Clayton (Erinn Hayes, “Kitchen Confidential”), have only one hurdle left to clear as they start their life together: breaking the news to Mel’s conservative parents that they have a wedding in the works and a baby on the way. Dick (Kurtwood Smith, “That ’70s Show”), a stern Judge, and his wife Angela (Nancy Lenehan, “My Name is Earl”), are protective of their daughter, and are really trying to let go of the anger they feel toward Sam … after all, disaster follows whenever he visits their house. But despite his best efforts, every time Sam takes one positive step forward in winning over his future in-laws, he inevitably takes two crushing steps back. But with support and love from Melanie who stands up for him despite his knack for making himself look bad, Sam will hopefully charm his way into her family.
