The Jim Gaffigan Show Returns on Father’s Day

2016 is Jim Gaffigan’s year. The comedian has joined KFC’s rotating list of celebrity Colonel Sanders (and is definitely more believable as the finger-licking dandy than skinny chickens Norm McDonald and Darrell Hammond), is killing it as a pitchman for the Chrysler Pacifica (I actually logged on to check out the swagger wagon and must admit, I’m interested), and this weekend, the funnyman’s semi-autobiographical series, The Jim Gaffigan Show returns to TV Land with back-to-back episodes.

“The Jim Gaffigan Show” — Jim And Jeannie Gaffigan’s Sixth Baby.

The Jim Gaffigan Show feels like a family business. It stars comedian Jim Gaffigan as a fictionalized version of himself — a food- and nap-loving devoted father of five, who is raising his brood of fair-haired kids in a two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Gaffigan also writes and produces the scorchingly funny series with his wife and writing partner Jeannie, and while the three of us chat on the phone, they’re joined by their 3-year-old Michael (child No. 4), who entertains us before departing with a charmingly lisped “Thanks! Thanks! Thanks! Thank you!” Clearly, performing is in the youngster’s […]
