I Guess I Have No Reason Not To Get TiVo Now: Strahan’s Series On Fox’s Fall Schedule

strahanThings come way too easy for Michael Strahan. It wasn’t bad enough that Brett Favre gave him the NFL sack record by going down quicker than a fat chick after last call, Strahan has managed to parlay commercial appearances,  a guest spot on Chuck and his analyst gig on Fox NFL Sunday into his own series on Fox called Brothers.

Strahan stars in “Brothers,” a new sitcom that will kick off Fridays in the fall, in which he plays a former NFL player who returns home to find that while he has changed, his family hasn’t. The show also stars Daryl (Chill) Mitchell (“Ed,” “Veronica’s Closet”) as Strahan’s brother.

Wow, Strahan is really stretching his acting wings by portraying a former NFL player. Crap, the last time an actor made such a leap was in every movie that Kevin Spacey plays a straight man.

Nevertheless, best of luck to Strahan in his new career. I wish he would have taken my suggestion and taken a job as a Quality Control Consultant for toothpick factories.
