Laurie Metcalf Cast in New Sitcom Pilot

Laurie MetcalfDo you get the same feeling that I do when you hear about a new sitcom pilot on FOX? Maybe it's because of years of conditioning, but there's a cringe factor whenever a new sitcom is announced. Is it going to be a crapfest? Is it going to be great but canceled quickly?

More than any other network, FOX's announcements for new shows fill one with dread. 'Strange Brew' sounds good, though. It's from the creators of 'Will & Grace' and 'Roseanne's' Laurie Metcalf has been cast as the mom. She plays an ex-drunk who runs a brewery.

It's funny how part of the plot is that Metcalf's character is trying to stop swearing. Having a sitcom on broadcast television could help with that, unless this show is going to be filled with bleeps.

With Metcalf's name attached to it, I'll give it a try. If I can find it on Fox's schedule when it premieres.

The problem with a character who is trying to stop swearing is that we'll probably get a lot of "oh f...udge", or "oh, fiddlesticks" which will be hilarious.
