What’s On TV? – Wednesday (10/2/2019) – ‘Almost Family’ and Other Family-Centered Shows Debut

With school now fully in swing, families look to TV for relatable content to relax after a long day of working, cooking, cleaning and chauffeuring their children around. With ABC’s “Modern Family,” “The Goldbergs,” “Single Parents,” and now the new FOX series, “Almost Family,” Wednesday nights are shaping up to be the night of family-centered shows.

Pick of the Day

“Almost Family” (FOX) at 9:00 p.m. ET

Based on the Australian comedy “Sisters,” “Almost Family” follows Julia Bechly as she discovers her fertility doctor’s father used his sperm to father countless children.

Amidst the mess, Julia offers DNA tests to anyone who thinks they might be the biological children of her father and becomes close with two sisters she never knew she had. Brittany Snow stars as Julia with Academy Award-winner Timothy Hutton as her father Leon. Megalyn Echikunwoke plays buttoned-up lawyer Edie with Emily Osment as Roxy, a peppy, attention-seeking performer who desperately wants to belong.

This heart-warming show is one of many in the family-themed Wednesday night line up that will certainly make you pick up the phone and call your siblings.

Movies on TV

“Bad Moms” (FXM) at 7:35 p.m. & 9:30 p.m. ET

Following the family-centered content theme, “Bad Moms” airs tonight on FXM. Starring Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn, and Kristen Bell, these moms have had it with trying to appear put together, polished and PTA approved. Finally pushed to their limit, the three women go on a multi-day bender to enjoy the freedom they haven’t had in years. Jada Pinkett Smith, Christina Applegate and Annie Mumolo star as the “good moms” whose missions are to make the others feel bad about their lives, their children and how they parent. Common ground is found among all the women with a sweet reminder that everyone is doing their best, no matter what that might look like.
