Will you be settling into your own lounge chair by the pool every Monday this fall?
That's what CBS is hoping you'll want to do after your first hangout with their new gang of guys on We Are Men, their new sitcom which premiered tonight. Starring Tony Shalhoub, Kal Penn, Jerry O'Connell and Chris Smith, the new comedy centers on four single guys, who are all recently divorced or dumped, living in an apartment complex while nursing their wounds.They drink. They date. They complain about women. They are men.
While we were less than amused by this man-child version of the Little Rascals' "He-Man Woman Haters Club," we're curious to know if you want to go grab a drink with CBS' new group of friends...
Though the pilot has a pretty anti-woman stance, Shalhoub insisted that We Are Men isn't sexist.
"I think it's interesting that you mention seeing the men's anger toward women, because I really believe that it's sort of misplaced," he said at the summer TCA press tour when asked about the four men's feelings about women. "Their anger is really, I believe, anger at themselves, and that gets misdirected to their various exes and the women in their lives. It's these guys coming to grips with where the real problems lie in their lives."
While it seemed like the guys aren't really rooting for each other to find love (the three divorced men crash and stop Smith character's Carter's wedding), creator Rob Greenberg assured critics that they will be supportive of one another. "If one of these guys fell in love and the woman is great, they'd all be for it and encourage him to move on," he said. "So it's not about, 'you can't go out in the world' or 'women are bad.' It's about doing it the right way and doing it in a way that's meaningful and loving. I think they would all support each other in that."
