    I’ve just been waiting to hear if The Sackett Sisters will get picked up, and every other pickup made by NBC makes me more nervous.

    When I first heard about this I was happy for ander’s to have a fresh gig and mindy to have another show but wasn’t planning on watching it right away. But now that I know that little dude from “other people” and “handsome” is gonna play the kid I’m definitely gonna check it out. Kid kills it every time he’s on screen

    This show sounds good but I’m upset that The Sackett Sisters probably isn’t happening…
