Surviving Jack


Christopher Meloni, 1990s fashion expert. Sort of. Just kidding. The Surviving Jack star sat down with his TV wife Rachael Harris to test their knowledge on all things '90s. Their Fox show is transporting them back to that wonderful decade of neon and bicycle shorts, so how great is their knowledge of the fly, all-that decade? Well, that's debatable.

Meloni fails his first question about fashion, Harris bombs a softball about Clueless dialogue, but aces one about Runaway Bride. And who can forget Meloni was in Runaway Bride? He certainly didn't!

Harris and Meloni play husband and wife in Fox's Surviving Jack, a new family comedy from Justin Halpern and Cougar Town's Bill Lawrence.  The show is based on Halpern's book I Suck at Girls, and follows Jack Dunlevy (Meloni), a military vet, who becomes a full-time dad to his two teenage kids (Claudia Lee and Connor Buckley) when his wife (Harris) returns to school.

Viewers will remember Meloni from his 12 years as Detective Stabler on Law & Order: SVU. He left the show and did a stint on True Blood as well as a slew of movies, but now the Emmy nominee heading to comedy.

"It's very refreshing to wake up every day and go, ‘I'm going to try and have some laughs today. I'm going to try and play,'" Meloni told E! News. "You carry with you if you spend the day beating someone up or whatever, as opposed to enjoying and messing around. You carry these things with you a little bit."

Surviving Jack premieres Thursday, Mar. 27 on Fox.
