Don’t look for Jimmy Fallon to be bringing back the Kid Dictionary game any time soon. Grandfathered star John Stamos visited The Tonight Show and although he obviously would rather have been playing any game other than Kid Dictionary, Stamos sort of helped Fallon figure out what word kids were attempting to describe, ending the bit with plea for a people to tune in and watch his half-hour comedy.
And speaking of his half-hour comedy series, Grandfathered airs on Tuesday nights at 8pm ET/PT. The series was created and written by Daniel Chun and stars Stamos, Josh Peck, Paget Brewster, Christina Milian, Kelly Jenrette, and Ravi Patel.
The Grandfathered Plot: Successful restaurateur and man-about-town JIMMY MARTINO (Stamos) is used to being the most suave, most handsome and most single person in the room. All that changes with the surprise appearance of Jimmy’s adult son, GERALD (Peck), and his baby daughter, EDIE. Now Jimmy has to unlearn a lifetime of blissful selfishness and grapple with the fact that he went straight from single to grandfather in six seconds flat. Keeping tabs on Jimmy is Gerald’s mother and Jimmy’s former girlfriend, rocker chick-turned-mother SARA (Brewster). Equally concerned about how Jimmy will manage these new developments is Jimmy’s restaurant family, especially assistant manager ANNELISE (Jenrette) and chef RAVI (Patel).
Can Jimmy teach Gerald to be a little more like him in order to win the affection of Edie’s hot mess of a mom, VANESSA (Milian)? Will Jimmy and Sara fall for each other all over again, even though she’s the one thing he never dates – a woman his own age? And who’s higher maintenance, Jimmy or the baby?
