A friend of mine quipped, Twenty Good Years ? how about twenty good minutes? It is no surprise this Lithgow / Tambor situation comedy is, along with 30 Rock, scheduled before The Biggest Loser because the biggest loser here is the viewer. John Lithgow is a very good actor but pretty average in a sitcom (3rd Rock From The Sun, a show that really overstayed its welcome). Tambor has a legendary track record of failed sitcoms (American Dreamer, Mr. Sunshine, Gloria, 9 to 5, Studio 5-B, Me & George, That Was Then). They play two brothers in their early sixties who decide to grab life by the balls.
You know a sitcom is in trouble when the star appears in his underwear or a Speedo. This happens in the pilot episode of Twenty Good Years. There is nothing good to say about this NBC sitcom aside from saying there was no obvious product placement moment. Maybe the advertisers knew a turkey when they saw the pilot: I guess they did not want to stuff this turkey.
