Cover your ears, grandma: There’s another comedy coming down the pipeline that hints to an expletive in the title. ABC just announced it has ordered a comedy pilot titled My Frickin’ Family, a single-camera project from Brillstein Entertainment that was penned by Erica Rivinoja (South Park). The logline: Two young parents’ lives change after they have a baby and the four grandparents with very different cultural backgrounds descend upon their lives to fight for the soul of their grandchild. (Or should we say, the little f–ker?)
A naughty word in the title certainly hasn’t hurt CBS’ $#*! My Dad Says, which has averaged 10.6 million and a 3.1 rating/9 share in adults 18-49. Before American Idol began, the William Shatner comedy was typically winning its timeslot. The Eye has yet to order another season, but it seems likely that The Shat will be back.
But back to ABC: The net also picked up a comedy pilot called Bad Mom, a single-camera project from Sharon Horgan and Aaron Kaplan about a woman who goes from having the best mom in the world to being the best mom in the world.
