Life in Pieces on CBS

I couldn't find a thread on this show. Please merge it if there is already one that I missed.


Anyone watching this show? I was skepitcal of it when I first saw previews for it. We decided to give it a try. It's a pretty funny show. I like how each situation is it's own segment and not spread out through the whole show, hence the name of the show.

Yup, it's in the rotation. One of the few shows my wife and I actually enjoy together. It's not a "must" watch yet, but we'll get around to it on the DVR.

I love it! I really like the multiple short story format. Each week has had laugh out loud moments for me.

I've actually been meaning to create a thread for this show for a few weeks now, but after a while figured no one was even watching since no one else created it.


Anyway, I have to say I find this show to be very funny. I really wasn't looking for a new sitcom, but the previews looked funny so I decided to give it a shot. I'm definitely glad I did. I don't think there has been a skit that hasn't made me chuckle at least once.


Of course, because I like it a lot, it's on the list to be cancelled. It started off strong, but the numbers are dropping.

Adult Comedy. Refreshing change of pace.

It's adequate, but I don't hold out much hope for it if it loses "The Big Bang Theory" as its lead-in.  Some of the characters are getting to be repetitive, though, and starting to grate on me, but it takes a lot for me to quit watching a series that asks for only a half hour a week.

Anyone else still enjoying this show? I thought last night's episode was pretty good.

There was one last night? I never saw it in the guide when I was setting up my shows. I do see there is one on Thanksgiving night.

Question about one episode. I recall seeing a commercial for the show two different times, weeks apart where James Brolin has something in a chair. When he turns it around, the family has a look of horror at what they saw. Has this episode ever aired because I still haven't seen it.

That episode aired last week. It was hilarious.

There is a new episode on tonight. I was surprised because there aren't many new shows broadcast on Thanksgiving.

I saw the ep with the "doll". Funny, but couldn't remember show's name 'til I ran into this thread.

"I knew you'd say that"...*BLAM!*

I checked my CBS On Demand channel last night. Out of the 8 or so episodes to date, they only had 3 listed, but fortunately the doll episode was one of them. That thing was creepy, but the family pranking each other with it was great.


As for last night's episode, Tim having the pictures taken of himself for the calendar was hysterical.

"I'll take as as many of these as I can get for $200." Classic!

When it was airing on Mondays, one was not shown the night they debuted Supergirl. I guess this one was to catch up with the other shows.

I am really liking this show. Tim and Heather have to be my favorites on the show.
