Fall TV First Look: The Millers' Will Arnett Deals With 'Separation' Anxiety

Will Arnett is experiencing much “separation” anxiety on the new CBS sitcom The Millers — but he might wanna think twice about evoking the stink-eye of TV’s erstwhile Mags Bennett!

In a new promo, Arnett’s alter ego, Nathan Miller, relates his unfortunate situation, as a recent divorcé now rooming with his newly separated mother Carol (played by Justified Emmy winner Margo Martindale). When his TV dad, Beau Bridges, makes a crack about “serving time” alongside Carol, Nate’s reaction doesn’t sit well with Mom.

The Millers — which premieres Thursday, Oct. 3 at 8:30/7:30c — also stars Jayma Mays (Glee) and Nelson Franklin (New Girl), as Arnett’s TV sis and bro-in-law, while J.B. Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm) plays Nate’s best bud and Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings) will recur as his ex-wife.

    This show would be great without Margo Martindale. I think she’s a good actor, but I saw this pilot, and she was really over the top.

  2. K2 says:

    Matt, totally off-topic, but whatever happened to Michael Slezak’s always entertaining recap of So You Think You Can Dance from this past Tuesday? Is he on vacation?

  3. Vlada says:

    One big-No, thank you.

  4. The Millers should join the likes of Dads, We Are Men, Back in the Game, Super Fun Night and a few others as one of the worst new sitcoms of the Fall TV season and Will Arnett can’t catch a break or is he? :-(

    This is a bad year for comedy.

  6. Eric Studholme says:

    Why does this seemingly terrible show star so many fantastic actors?

    • Badpenny says:

      I was thinking the same thing. There’s a lot of great comedic talent there, but it just seem so pedantic and common. Comedy doesn’t need to be overly original but it shouldn’t be incredibly unoriginal.

  7. Megan says:

    Not even this cast can make a show like this work.

  8. Cherry says:

    I predict historically bad ratings for this show. It’s such a shame for Margo, she’s fantastic.

  9. Sheldon W. says:

    What a shame – this teaser trailer is funnier than anything in the pilot!

  10. Dave says:

    Pretty much the entire cast of this show deserves better.

    Don’t drink the apple pie, Will. It would be unwise.
