Man With a Plan Recruits TV Vets to Play Matt LeBlanc's Mom and Dad

Man With a Plan? More like man with two highly recognizable parents.

The freshman CBS sitcom has tapped TV veterans Valerie Harper (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Rhoda) and Stacy Keach (Mike Hammer, Titus) to recur as the mother and father of Matt LeBlanc’s titular character, Adam Burns. The duo are set to appear in at least two episodes, the air dates of which are TBD.

Back in November, CBS ordered an additional six episodes of Man With a Plan, bringing its Season 1 total to 19. The series’ first post-holiday episode on Monday notched 6.5 million viewers and a 1.2 demo rating, a slight uptick from its last outing.

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!

    I thought Man with a plan had 19 episodes, not 16

    remember when she was dying like 5 years ago and had months to live?!
    I love her — but I still think that was played up to sell books
    yup, her book came out at same time
    and she and agent pushed selling signed copies via social media
    again, i still love her and glad she lived

    Fun casting! MAN WITH A PLAN is finding its way. Not a big fan of CBS comedies, but this vehicle is more roadworthy than KEVIN CAN WAIT (ugh) and the weary Eye vets that are still trying to mine laughs beyond their prime and premise.

    Valerie looks uber skinny and her face looks like plastic surgery overload. I too thought she was on death’s bed. Hmmm.
