ABC logoEven though the popularity of the family sitcom is starting to wane a bit, ABC has picked one up for their primetime schedule.

It's called 'Southern Discomfort' from writer Chad Kultgen and former 'Cheers' writer Rob Long who has filled its executive producer chair along with Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum.

It's described as a multicamera series surrounding a father who lets his grown children move back in with him. So far, no big names have been attached to the cast, but who do you think would be the perfect actors or actresses to play such a part?

I went to the taping down in Culver City, CA last night. Don Johnson is the dad. Mary Steenburgen is the mother. Sophia Bush is the daughter. I don't remember the name of the guy who plays the son. It's a really, really good show. I hope it gets picked up.

A young Ellen Page- Juno-ish, with the kinda redneck dad, THAT'S a good cast!

I think with the popularity of shows like The Middle and Modern Family,
family sitcoms have had a slight up tick.

I am not sure if the popularity of the family sitcom is waning. I think people just want better writing. I'd much rather watch a sitcom over reality shows. Too much hate and ugliness in them.
