Who’s In It? Tyler Ritter, Jack McGee, Laurie Metcalf, Jimmy Dunn, Joey McIntyre
What’s It All About? The McCarthys are a tight-knit Boston family and are therefore loud, obnoxious, sports-obsessed and closed-minded. Middle child Ronny (Ritter) is gay, civilized, sports-ignorant but WICKED BOOK SMAAHT and therefore something of the family’s black sheep. When Ronny wants to move away, his father (McGee), head coach of a high-school basketball team, hires him to be an assistant coach. Crazy, right? It’s also infuriatingly bad. We’d rather listen to New Kids on the Block’s McIntyre sing “Please Don’t Go Girl” 1,000 times before spending 10 minutes with The McCarthys.
