The Michael J. Fox Show episode 4 “Hobbies” premiere Thursday, October 10 (9:30-10:00 p.m.) on NBC.

Episode Synopsis: The Michael J. Fox Show Episode 4 “Hobbies”- When Mike (Michael J. Fox) and Annie (Betsy Brandt) learn that Graham’s (Jack Gore) after school program has been cancelled, the two compete over finding a new activity for him to enjoy. Meanwhile, at work, Mike is reunited with his nemesis, Susan Rodriguez-Jones (guest star Anne Heche), when Harris (Wendell Pierce) brings her on as the new anchor at NBC4. Back at home, Leigh (Katie Finneran) and Ian (Conor Romero) accidentally engage in a Twitter war with a girl at Eve’s (Juliette Goglia) school.

Look who’s making the news again. One of New York’s most beloved news anchors, Mike Henry (Michael J. Fox, “Spin City,” “Family Ties”), put his career on hold to spend more time with his family and focus on his health after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. But five years later, with the kids busy growing up and Mike growing restless, it just might be time for him to get back to work. Having never wanted Mike to leave in the first place, his old boss Harris Green (Wendell Pierce, “The Wire,” “Treme”) jumped at the chance to get him back on TV. The trick, as it’s always been, was to make Mike think it was his idea. Now the plan is in motion and Mike will be back to juggling home, family, and career — just like the old days, but only better.

Writer Sam Laybourne (“Cougar Town”), director Will Gluck (“Easy A,” “Friends with Benefits”) and Fox serve as executive producers. “The Michael J. Fox Show” is a production of Sony Pictures Television and Olive Bridge Entertainment.
