TBS�s MY BOYS Suits Up for the Big Game: A Sunday, Feb. 4, Marathon of All 13 Episodes
Episodes of Acclaimed Series Kick Off at 5 p.m. (ET/PT)
TBS�s critically acclaimed original comedy series MY BOYS is suiting up for the biggest game day of the year: Sunday, Feb. 4. That�s when TBS will present all 13 episodes of the popular series in order, from the first episode, in which viewers meet PJ and her gang of guy friends, to the startling season finale, in which PJ opens the door on a possible new relationship. MY BOYS, which claimed last year�s title as ad-supported cable�s #1 original sitcom in delivery of key adult demos, viewers and households, has been renewed for a second season to start this summer. The MY BOYS marathon kicks off at 5 p.m. and continues until 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
�MY BOYS� pitch-perfect blend of comedy and romance has made it one of cable�s outstanding comedy hits and ideal counter programming against the big game,� said Ken Schwab, senior vice president of programming for TBS and sister network TNT. �It�s also a great opportunity for viewers to catch the fantastic first season from beginning to end.�
MY BOYS stars Jordana Spiro (JAG, Must Love Dogs) as an unabashed, sports-loving girl who spends most of her time hanging out with her group of male friends, which can put a damper on her personal search for romance. In addition to Spiro, the series 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?). MY BOYS is produced by Pariah and Two Out Rally Productions, Inc. in association with Sony Pictures Television, with creator Betsy Thomas (Run of the House), Jamie Tarses and Gavin Polone (Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Gilmore Girls) serving as executive producers.
The following is a complete schedule of TBS�s MY BOYS Sunday, Feb. 4, marathon:
5 p.m. �Pilot� � Chicago sports reporter PJ Franklin (Spiro) feels very comfortable in her life, hanging out and playing poker or softball with her group of male friends. But when Bobby (Howard), a sports reporter for a rival Chicago newspaper, joins the gang, she sees a potential new love interest. She only has to seal the deal without coming on too strong.
5:30 p.m. �Mixed Signals� � PJ (Spiro) is confused when Bobby (Howard) gives her a signed baseball as a gift, since she doesn�t know if it�s supposed to signal a new step in their relationship. And when he shows up at a bar with a yoga instructor/dancer on his arm, PJ�s confusion only becomes more overwhelming. Meanwhile, ladies man Mike (Kaler) has his eye on a woman Kenny (Bunin) has been wanting to date.
6 p.m. �Team Chemistry� � Mike (Kaler) introduces the gang to Amad (Kiko Ellsworth), and PJ figures he�s a perfect date for her best friend, Stephanie (Stewart). But Amad has other ideas. Mike finds himself feeling a little jealous over the friendship that�s developing between Bobby (Howard) and Kenny (Bunin). And while in an �off� phase of his on-again/off-again relationship with Wendy, Brendan (Scott) starts dating one of his fans, Traci (Brooke Nevin), who quickly overstays her welcome.
6:30 p.m. �The Slump� � Brendan (Scott), Kenny (Bunin) and Mike (Kaler) are in a slump as far as dating is concerned, so they head out to a local pick-up bar, but PJ�s (Spiro) insistence on going along messes with their mojo. Stephanie (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.
7 p.m. �The Show� � PJ�s (Spiro) relationship with her new boyfriend, Hank (Eddie McClintock), seems to be going along perfectly, leaving the rest of the gang without a place to hang out and play poker. Brendan (Scott) has not only decided to get back together with his on-again/off-again girlfriend Wendy (Lindsey Stoddart), but also feels he�s ready to take their relationship to a new level. And Andy (Gaffigan) has been persuaded by his wife to move out to the suburbs.
7:30 p.m. �Clubhouse Poison� � PJ (Spiro) ambushes her new boyfriend, Hank (McClintock), into hanging out with the guys, while Kenny (Bunin) invites his too-eager-to-please friend Trouty (Johnny Galecki). And Brendan�s fianc�e, Wendy (Stoddart), invites PJ for drinks, even though the two have very little in common.
8 p.m. �Free Agent� � It�s the big night of the decathlon, an annual competition that pits PJ (Spiro) and Kenny (Bunin) against Mike (Kaler) and Brendan (Scott) in a series of 10 games over five nights. PJ (Jordana Spiro) gets Andy (Gaffigan) to take her place in the competition, but his playing skills leave a lot to be desired. And PJ�s relationship with Hank (McClintock) starts to show some cracks, especially after a work trip she takes with Bobby (Howard).
8:30 p.m. �Superstar Treatment� � Mike (Kaler) has a new girlfriend named Dani (Andrea Bogart), a real looker who has the guys quite smitten. But she rubs PJ (Spiro) the wrong way, and there�s something about her that seems very familiar to Brendan (Scott). Jack Brisco (Jay Tarses), a top sportswriter, steals some of PJ�s material. And Andy (Gaffigan) and his wife are taking a wine-tasting class.
9 p.m. �Managers� � Andy (Gaffigan) has a weekend off while his wife is out of town and decides to really let loose like he did in the old days, which may be a little more than PJ (Spiro) can handle. Kenny (Bunin) finally lands a date with a very attractive girl. And Stephanie (Stewart) tries a new extreme diet.
9:30 p.m. �Take One for the Team� � Trouty (Galecki) arranges to get the gang into an exclusive new nightclub, whose owner (Colin Ferguson) has aggressive eyes for PJ (Spiro). But the situation gets complicated when Trouty finds out how they really feel about him. Meanwhile, Stephanie�s (Stewart) new dating tactics don�t have the results she was wanting. And Andy (Gaffigan) is dreading an impending move to the suburbs.
10 p.m. �When Heroes Fall from Grace� � PJ�s (Spiro) eccentric and freewheeling Aunt Phyllis (Laurie Metcalf) comes for a visit and gets a little too close to Kenny (Bunin) for PJ�s comfort. Mike (Kaler) and Bobby (Howard) meet one of their heroes, a former Major League pitcher (Neil Flynn). And Brendan�s (Scott) relationship with Wendy (Stoddart) hits another snag when the wedding plans become too much for him to handle.
10:30 p.m. �Released� � PJ (Spiro) gets roped into a dinner with a nerdy former classmate (PJ Byrne), then gets upset when he doesn�t call her back, which leads to an even stickier situation. Bobby (Howard) finds out that there�s going to be a shake-up in the Cubs front office and that Mike�s (Kaler) job might be in jeopardy. And Brendan (Scott) decides to swear off alcohol in light of his recent breakup.
11 p.m. �Myths� � Andy�s wife, Meredith (Jeannie Noth, Jim Gaffigan�s real wife), decides to throw Andy (Gaffigan) a party at the gang�s regular watering hole, and the gang is shocked to find out she�s nothing like the way Andy describes. As Meredith prepares for the party, PJ (Spiro) and the gang take Andy for an eventful trip to Wrigley Field. Meanwhile, PJ and Brendan�s (Scott) past comes to light when the gang finds out they once made out in college, but PJ�s recollection of the event doesn�t match Brendan�s. And a shadow from Kenny�s (Bunin) past by the name of �Mexican Freddie� (David Pressman) may be out to get him.
