A Gay Son's Marriage Proposal Sends Mom Into a Panic on 'Love Bites' (VIDEO)

love bitesIt's summer! Time for the networks to burn off some of their more, shall we say, expendable projects. Enter 'Love Bites' (Thurs., 10PM ET on NBC), the new romantic comedy anthology series featuring a stable of familiar faces (Greg Grunberg, Guillermo Diaz, Constance Zimmer).

On Thursday's episode, Kurtwood Smith, who's probably best known for playing hard-ass dad Red Foreman on 'That '70s Show,' starred as a more understanding father who offers a congratulatory toast minutes after learning that his gay son plans to marry his partner. Smith's wife, however, had a more nervous and negative reaction to the big news, to put it lightly.

With her son and his new fiancée looking on, a clearly wrecked mom reaches for the nearest Bloody Mary and turns a backyard get-together into an exercise in awkwardness.

NBC reportedly shelved 'Love Bites' for more than a year, leading its cast and crew to leave the show to work on other projects before it even premiered. Still, the network plans to air the nine completed episodes this summer. What do you say, folks, will 'Love Bites' make it on to your summer TV must-watch (or maybe your fluffy guilty pleasure) list?
