You Know What's Funny, According to ABC? Laid-Off Dads ...

I have spent a lot of time over the past few years gleefully pointing out that there is very little humor to be squeezed out of at-home fatherhood. The "Mr. Mom" no longer works; most Americans simply do not find dads that can't change a diaper or talk about tough issues with their kids to be all that plausible. 

So I don't think I'm going out on a limb predicting that the as-yet-unnamed Kelsey Grammer vehicle, in which he plays a Wall Street type suddenly forced into the at-home role, will crash and burn. Which is not to say they won't have a couple of good episodes (a workaholic's reintegration into the home has potential) but ongoing idiocy is not funny.
