Fall TV Preview

Fall Sneak Peek: Watch the First Promo For Fox's New Comedy Ben and Kate

The current TV season isn’t over yet but that isn’t stopping Fox from revving up its fall premiere buzz machine now.

Case in point: Tonight, the network is poised to unveil the first promo for its new Tuesday-night comedy Ben and Kate, and we’ve got your exclusive first look at the 30-second spot.

The sitcom, which will air at 8:30/7:30c as a lead-in to New Girl, revolves around an uptight single mom (played by Dakota Johnson) whose aimless brother (Nat Faxon) moves in to help raise her daughter (Maggie Jones).

Press PLAY below and then hit the comments with an answer to this question: Based on this promo (and the full-length trailer), are you inclined to spend 30 minutes with Ben and Kate next season?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Ben and Kate: one of the worst new sitcoms coming this Fall. :-(

      Yup, must be the worst new sitcom this fall. And no one has even seen it yet!

      I’m going to be checking it out. I looked at the extended trailer that was released last week during the upfronts and it looks like some great silly and cute fun. I’ll be checking it out.

    I’ll give it a shot.

    Seems vapid and silly, so it should do well.

    Stupid fox I hate you for canceling terra nova

  6. Barre says:

    This looked like the least interesting pilot to me after reading summaries and cast lists. But this was fairly funny, and the little girl is so cute.

  7. Definitely plan to check this one out! But then, I’m willing to try most comedies (unless the premise/promos are really bad), since a half hour pilot is a short time investment. If it makes me laugh, I’ll keep watching, if not, most comedies don’t have a huge underlying question to make me come back like most dramas do, so they tend to be an easy drop.

    Definitely looks like the best new sitcom and one of the best new shows of this upcoming fall

  9. A says:

    this will get cancelled.

  10. N. says:

    Promo doesn’t look that funny, but I usually try to give new series a shot.

  11. john says:

    awesome! definitely will check it out

  12. kim says:

    The little girl is from “We Bought a Zoo.” She’s adorable. The guy that plays “Ben” is the guy from “Grosse Pointe” that I don’t know, but I call him “Chip” because he looks like a Chip. He’s funny.

    this looks awful. nat faxon get out now!!

  14. rubytu says:

    it won’t make up for no House and The Finder and Alcatraz….looks dumbed down to me.

  15. mbento28 says:

    ‘Non hablo inglés’ it’s spanish not portuguese… stupid people… they dont even know where is portugal.

  16. Tommy says:

    I think I would rather watch paint dry… ABC’s new show “Baby Daddy”, while a different take on similar themes seems to be a lot better than this disaster…

  17. jenikadunn says:

    love the promo of Ben Kate

  18. cyclone says:

    i can’t stand that guy Nat Faxon, Dakota Johnson looks about 12 and not nearly old enough to play a mother of a 4 or 5 year old. the little girl is cute though.

  19. Danielle H says:

    Doesn’t look horrible.

  20. John Grose says:

    Nope. It’s on FOX. – John

  21. Brandon says:

    Yeah those imbeciles should be fired for that Portuguese mistake! That’s what happens when you hire ignorant morons whom don’t know the difference between the Portuguese and Spanish language. Hey Fox director/producer, no hablas ingles is Spanish and not Portuguese, Italian, or French!
