Description: Being �one of the guys� can mean a lot of great things: poker, pick-up softball games, watching sports or just hanging out at a favorite bar. But for PJ Franklin, played by Jordana Spiro (JAG, Must Love Dogs) in TBS�s original comedy series MY BOYS, being a girl who�s one of the guys can be challenging. This new half-hour comedy, from executive producers Betsy Thomas (Run of the House), Jamie Tarses and Gavin Polone (Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Gilmore Girls), explores what happens when an unabashed, sports-loving girl goes looking for romance. The series co-stars Jim Gaffigan (That �70s Show, Ed), Kyle Howard (Related, Orange County), Reid Scott (American Dreams), Michael Bunin (Scrubs), Jamie Kaler (The Family Stone) and Kellee Stewart (Guess Who?).
10 p.m. (ET/PT) �Team Chemistry� � Written by Cindy Caponera; Directed by Matthew Diamond
Mike (Jamie Kaler) introduces the gang to Amad (Kiko Ellsworth), and PJ figures he�s a perfect date for her best friend, Stephanie (Kellee Stewart). But Amad has other ideas. Mike finds himself feeling a little jealous over the friendship that�s developing between Bobby (Kyle Howard) and Kenny (Michael Bunin). And while in an �off� phase of his on-again/off-again relationship with Wendy, Brendan (Reid Scott) starts dating one of his fans, Traci (Brooke Nevin), who quickly overstays her welcome.
10:30 p.m. (ET/PT) �The Slump� � Written by Eric Gilliland; Directed by Victor Nelli, Jr.
Brendan (Reid Scott), Kenny (Michael Bunin) and Mike (Jamie Kaler) are in a slump as far as dating is concerned, so they head out to a local pick-up bar, but PJ�s (Jordana Spiro) insistence on going along messes with their mojo. Stephanie (Kellee Stewart) decides PJ needs to get in touch with her feminine side and invites her to have drinks at a swanky hotel, where PJ proceeds to find a way out of her own slump.
