Grandfathered, Pilot


Oh television gods, you are too good to us. 

Tonight's a big night for handsome men, the people who love them, and the letter G, because it's the premiere of both Grandfathered, starring perpetual stunner John Stamos, and The Grinder, starring clearly-a-vampire Rob Lowe.

It also helps that both shows are great, at least in our humble opinions. We ranked The Grinder at no. 7 and Grandfathered at no. 5 in our ranking of the best and worst new fall shows. Now, it's your turn to weigh in! 

Grandfathered stars Stamos as a lifelong bachelor who seems to have the perfect, responsibility-free life until he discovers in that he not only has a grown up son Gerald (Josh Peck), but also an adorable toddler granddaughter. The show also stars the equally attractive (and awesome) Paget Brewster as Gerald's mom, and Christina Milian (who also happens to be gorgeous) as Gerald''s baby's mom.

In other words, welcome to a beautiful world in which someone greenlit a show about Uncle Jesse and Drake and Josh's Josh hanging out with a baby for a half an hour each week, and it makes for a great time. 

The Grinder


On The Grinder, Rob Lowe stars as famous TV star Rob Lowe Dean Sanderson, whose lawyer TV show, The Grinder, has just ended. Dean ends up moving back to his hometown, where his real-life lawyer brother Stewart (Fred Savage) is less than thrilled to see him and his charm...especially when Dean decides he's qualified to join his family law firm.

The Grinder also stars Mary Elizabeth Ellis as Stewart's wife and William Devane as Dean and Stewart's lawyer father, and if you have a thing for TV shows about fake TV shows (like some of us here on the TV team do), then there's little chance that you didn't also enjoy this show. 

Either way, there's something for everyone in this sweet little Fox comedy block, unless of course you're dead inside. Take our polls below and then head to the comments to let us know if you agree! 

Grandfathered airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. and The Grinder follows at 8:30 p.m. on Fox.
