Lon, who is needy and wears his emotions on his sleeve, has the opposite energy of Jack. But Jack is the only one around in the afternoon for poor Lon to talk to, so you see where this is going.

Surviving Jack is slated to bow at midseason.

    • I saw the pilot. It’s great. Christopher Meloni gives an Emmy-worthy performance. The actor playing his wife (Alex Kapp Horner, not familiar with her work) was kind of bland, but she has been replaced with the very funny Rachael Harris. So, yeah this is a show to look out for.

      • I certainly hope you’re right. I love both Chris and Rachael and hope this work out for them! When it airs midseason, I’ll definitely give it a shot (I just hope it isn’t scheduled opposite some of my must-watch shows…). Any talk of the timeslot it was given?

        • None yet, but there is a thing called DVR. Or watching online.
