The Millers is a new family comedy but one of the few without teens or children as part of the main cast. In this one, TV reporter Nathan Miller (Will Arnett) is recently divorced. When his parents Carol and Tom (Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges) learn of the divorce, they decide to stop trying to be good role models and separate as well with Carol moving in with Nathan and Tom moving in with Nathan's sister Debbi (Jayma Mayes) and her husband Adam (Nelson Franklin). Also in the main cast is Nathan's friend Ray (JB Smoove).
BOTTOM LINE: This isn't one of the worst comedy pilots of the new season but I would consider it the most disappointing because it has good people and could be a good show. Unfortunately it chooses to resort to stupid fart jokes and Raymond mimicking (down to Martindale's "look what you did"). Seeming like a weak knock off of another show is never a good start.
