Jimmy Fallon doesn’t have any children. Which may have something to do with why the sitcom he’s executive producing for NBC’s fall lineup — “Guys with Kids” — may not be a hit with its target audience, guys with kids.
Still, all we’ve seen so far is a short two-minute clip and there’s nowhere to go but up.
In it, co-stars Jesse Bradford, Zach Cregger and Anthony Anderson sit in a bar — each with a baby strapped to his chest — and rap about daddy dilemmas. Like what to do when you need to give your kid whole milk, but the bar only has 2 percent. Real dads wouldn’t need to go to a committee to solve that problem — but these guys do.
They also complain about other parental annoyances, like not sleeping and fatique-induced forgetfulness. All stuff that may have been more comically ironic even a decade ago, before the stay-at-home dad thing became a norm.
What do you think? Funny or kind of dated?
