New Fall TV Shows – What’s in a Name?: “Mr. Sunshine”


For the next little bit we will be going over the names of some of this fall’s new crop of TV shows and, based solely on the title say what the show sounds like it SHOULD be about. First up, the Matthew Perry/Allison Janney comedy (?), Mr. Sunshine.

What it sounds like it should be about: Small town set sitcom about a lonely old coot who inspires fear in the local children until he befriends a precocious little girl and she decides to give him an image makeover. Starring Ed Asner.

What it is actually about (from the EW website): Matthew Perry stars as the owner of a sports arena; Allison Janney plays his boss.
