BrothersWhat should you expect from the new TV shows coming this fall? Read our first impressions of Fox's 'Brothers,' starring Daryl "Chill" Mitchell and former NFL star Michael Strahan ...

Premise: Recently retired NFL star Mike Trainor returns home to the open arms of his mother and father and the not-so-open arms of his wheelchair-bound brother, Chill. When Mike's business manager runs off with all his money, he and Chill try to run a restaurant together ... and avoid killing each other.



Note: This is not a review, merely our first impression of an unfinished product. A show can go through many changes between the pilot stage and its official broadcast debut.


'Brothers'

Premise: Recently retired NFL star Mike Trainor returns home to the open arms of his mother and father and the not-so-open arms of his wheelchair-bound brother, Chill. When Mike's business manager runs off with all his money, he and Chill try to run a restaurant together ... and avoid killing each other.

Cast: Daryl "Chill" Mitchell, Michael Strahan, CCH Pounder, Carl Weathers

What Works: The supporting cast is A-list (Pounder, Weathers), and we're glad to see Mitchell again ...

What Doesn't: ... we just wish it weren't in this painfully unfunny sitcom. Sample "joke" that Carl Weathers is forced to say: "When did men start shaving their wiggly-doos? I walked in the shower the other day, it looked like a bunch of giant 5-year-olds, and that's creepy." Ugh. And poor CCH Pounder -- girl deserves better.

Our Excitement Level (Out of 10): 0

Premiere Date: Fri., Sept. 25, 8PM ET on Fox
