TBS is continuing their Very Funny slogan with Sullivan & Son tonight at 10p.
Steve Byrne plays a NYC lawyer who comes back home to Pittsburgh for a visit and winds up buying his father’s bar and staying. Now he has to deal with Irish dad (Dan Lauria), his controlling Korean mom (Jodi Long) who his dad met in Vietnam and his younger sister (Vivian Bang) who is happy her big bro is back to take the pressure off of her. But it isn’t only his family he has to deal with, he also the regulars to contend with. Carol (Christine Ebersole) has done everything at the bar and I do mean everything. Owen (Owen Benjamin) who will help Steve out with the bar. And then there is Hank (Brian Doyle-Murray) who has been going to the bar since it opened and he doesn’t like all the changes that has happened to the neighborhood. In other words he is a huge racist and what he says makes you laugh even though it shouldn’t.
Steve will struggle trying to keep bar running, keep the customers happy and most importantly survive his family. All we have to do is struggle not to laugh too hard because this show is hilarious.
