A new show has been added to the Thursday night lineup. CBS is ready to premiere “The McCarthys” tomorrow night at 9:30 p.m. The show centers around a Boston family obsessed with sports. The October 30th premiere features Ronny, an athletically-challenged son gets chosen by his father to assistant coach a high school basketball team.
The cast is a talented group. Ronny is played by Tyler Ritter, the son of the late Three’s Company member, John Ritter. And, one of his older twin brothers on the show is played by New Kids on the Block member, and Boston native, Joey McIntyre. The mom on the show, Laurie Metcalf is probably best-known for her role as Aunt Jackie on the sitcom “Roseanne,” and she is also Sheldon Cooper’s mom on CBS’s other hit show “The Big Bang Theory.”
