'My Boys' Star Jamie Kaler Nearly Kills A Woman With Laughter (VIDEO)

by Ryan McKee, posted Nov 16th 2010 7:00PM
Jamie Kaler's show, the underrated TBS sitcom 'My Boys,' was canceled, but luckily, he has a stand-up comedy career to fall back on. Now Kaler is back on stage with a vengeance. Do you think he blames his audiences for 'My Boys' low ratings?

At a recent show at the Columbus Funny Bone, Kaler literally caused a woman to laugh so hard she began choking (see video below). It was so severe, the comedian noticed her from stage and says, "No, she's not joking." That prompted others to give the choking victim the Heimlich maneuver. Nothing popped out of her throat and everyone realized she was only laughing. Very hard.

TBS Cancels 'My Boys'

'My Boys'Sad news, 'My Boys' fans: After four seasons following Chicago sportswriter P.J. (Jordana Spiro) and her buds, the comedy series has just been given the ax by TBS, Deadline Hollywood reports.

After the network quietly burned off the show's latest season on Sunday nights -- against critical cable darling 'Mad Men,' no less -- things weren't looking up for 'My Boys.' Unfortunately, ratings were down an average 19 percent from season 3, which wasn't enough for TBS to commit to a fifth go-around.

Top 20: TV's Best BFFs

by Kim Potts, posted Jul 26th 2010 3:30PM

The 'Entourage' pals are back with their seventh season, and the 'My Boys' friends kicked off season 4 recently, which got us to thinking about our other favorite TV friendships.

Whether it's the duo who inspired 'Guy Love' and the other guy pair who would be quick to point out that there's nothing wrong with that or the Milwaukee ladies who schlemiel-ed and schlimazel-ed their way to making their dreams come true and the Miami foursome who proved friendship (and feistiness) is even more important in your 'Golden' years, these are the 20 TV BFFs we'd be happy to call friends.

Jordana Spiro Talks 'My Boys,' Conan on TBS and Finding Her Competitive Side

by Kelly Woo, posted Jul 25th 2010 12:00AM
Jordana SpiroBeing "one of the guys" can be hard work -- all that ping-pong playing, beer drinking, ESPN watching ... it's tiring even just typing that.

But Jordana Spiro easily traverses Guy Land in her fourth season as the star of TBS' comedy, 'My Boys.' Her character, sportswriter PJ, goes toe to toe (and beer for beer) with boyfriend Bobby (Kyle Howard) and a cadre of male friends (Michael Bunin, Jamie Kaler, Reid Scott). For some female companionship, she's got BFF Stephanie -- who recently started dating one of those guys, Kenny (Bunin).

Spiro talked to TV Squad recently about the changes to the group in season 4 (premieres Sun., July 25 at 10PM ET), getting her ping-pong on, the sport she obsessed over this year and Conan O'Brien's move to TBS.

Reid Scott - Getty ImagesWhile the prognosis isn't looking good for TBS comedy 'My Boys,' which is unlikely to score a fifth season pick-up due to the fact that most folks don't know it exists, star Reid Scott's career prospects are far from terminal.

According to Deadline, Scott has just scored a heavily recurring role on Showtime's new dark comedy 'The Big C' opposite Laura Linney. He'll play Dr. Todd, the fresh-faced oncologist treating Linney's Cathy for inoperable cancer, who is described as having "lots of training and intellect but lacks life or professional experience."

My Boys: Spring Training (season finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted May 27th 2009 8:05AM
My BoysI wonder if a show like My Boys could survive on network television. Probably not. Nothing to do with the quality of the show, but it seems like the type of show that does better on cable (in a 10:30 time slot) than it would on ABC or NBC, with all that pressure. Last night the guys went to spring training in Arizona (maybe a little late for that, but there you go).

(10PM, FX)
Only Tommy Gavin could hatch a plan as bizarre – and bizarrely effective – as this.

When he finds out Colleen and Bart (aka "Black Shawn") plan to get married, he decides the best way to break them up is to complicate their relationship by encouraging his daughter to have sex.

Elsewhere in what is proving to be one of the show's funniest, best seasons, Franco and Mike butt heads over their differing viewpoints on 9/11, Mike – who seems oddly smarter, for the most part, this season – gets a new idea for a theme bar, Tommy meets Sheila's new therapist and Sean meets up with the creepiest back doctor ever.
