FATHER OF THE PRIDE --(9:00PM-9:30PM) --(TV-14)
IT'S NOTHING A LITTLE MEATBALL CAN'T CURE; GARY MARSHALL GUEST STARS -- Overworked and feeling the strain of being lead lion, Larry (voiced by John Goodman) takes advantage of a bad landing during practice to over-emphasize a leg injury, giving him a week of bed rest. However, when his blissful time off is interrupted by Sarmoti's (voiced by Carl Reiner) bitterness, the exhausted lead lion slips his surly father-in-law a medicated meatball in the hope of quieting the African lion. Veteran film and television actor, producer and director Gary Marshall ("Pretty Woman") guest stars as Bernie, the ultimate white lion yes-man who hangs on Sarmoti's every word. Orlando Jones, Cheryl Hines, Dave Herman, Julian Holloway, Danielle Andrea Harris and Daryl Sabara also star.
