Great show alert!  Great show alert!

The new show, “Working Class”, premiering on CMT on January 28, 2011 at 8pm ET/PT.  And everyone reading this blog should watch it!

In the world of reality shows and dramatic TV, it is refreshing to see a sitcom with witty jokes, a realistic plot line, and characters I can relate too!  I like this cast and find Ed Asner, a favorite actor of mine, to be likable, funny, and a good anchor to a talented cast of characters.

It is G rated enough for kids but with a sprinkle of adult jokes to make it interesting!  I did really like it and look forward to seeing how this single mother tried to balance life, bills, and relationships in this fresh, new comedy!

Here is the “skinny” on the show:

“Working Class” focuses on Carli Mitchell (Melissa Peterman), a single mom from a rough and tumble background, trying to give her kids a better life by moving them to an upscale suburb. She quickly finds that making the transition to “the good life” is harder than she thought.

She’s unwittingly befriended by her cranky neighbor, Hank (Ed Asner), her only “career” prospect is a glorified deli job at the local grocery store, and the man she falls for not only already has a girlfriend – but he’s also her boss, Rob (Patrick Fabian). With her ladies-man brother, Nick (Steve Kazee), to help her out (when he’s not acting like one of the kids himself), Carli faces the challenges of parenting, dating, and making friends in her new community by doing more with less, staying true to herself, and approaching each day with a touch of working class.

Set your DVR’s, alarms on your smart phones, and write it on your white board!  You’ll want to see “Working Class” on CMT, january 28, 2011 at 8pmET/PT!
