That’s Mayor Jimmy Smits To You, Thanks Very Much!

Jimmy Smits has been cast as the mayor of Los Angeles in Stephen Gaghan’s NBC drama pilot “S.I.L.A.” The actor, who also starred in NBC’s short-lived “Outlaw,” plays a mayor with aspirations to run for U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s seat — but who may be undone by a reputation for womanizing and ties to a criminal overlord. The show is similar in structure to “Traffic,” for which Gaghan won an Oscar for best adapted screenplay. It examines Los Angeles from the persective of an elite law enforcement unit. As in “Traffic,” the personal and political are closely interlinked. The cast of the series also includes Noah Emmerich, Danny Pino, Daniella Alonso, Matthew Levy, Madchen Amick, and Luis Chavez.

Sons of Tucson: TV Show Cancelled by Fox, No Season Two

After a poor start, Fox pulled Sons of Tucson from the schedule. The network maintained that TV show was not cancelled. Well, it is now.

Sons of Tucson follows a sporting goods store clerk (Tyler Labine) who lives in his car. He's hired by three boys (Benjamin Stockham, Frank Dolce, and Matthew Levy) to play their father for a school meeting after their real dad goes to jail for banking fraud. In case of future emergencies, he moves into their tool shed. The series also features Sarayu Rao, Edwin Habacon, and Natalie Martinez.

The series got off to a poor start with just a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.47 million viewers. Subsequent episodes performed even worse, with number four attracting only a 1.4 rating in the demo and 3.13 million viewers.

Sons of Tucson: Fox TV Show Not Cancelled, But...

Last week, Fox made the decision to pull their new Sunday night sitcom, Sons of Tucson, after just four airings. Several sites have reported that the show has been cancelled but in truth, it's on hiatus.

Sons of Tucson follows a sporting goods store clerk (Tyler Labine) who lives in his car. He’s hired by three boys (Benjamin Stockham, Frank Dolce, and Matthew Levy) to play their father for a school meeting after their real dad goes to jail for banking fraud. In case of future emergencies, he moves into their tool shed. The series also features Sarayu Rao, Edwin Habacon, and Natalie Martinez.

When it debuted last month, the ratings for Sons of Tucson weren't good and pretty much got worse every week. That's not a surprise to those behind the show since they believe it was airing in the wrong timeslot.

Sons of Tucson: Fox Pulls Tyler Labine Sitcom, Is It Cancelled?

To no surprise, Fox has pulled Sons of Tucson after just four episodes have aired. With a track record of terrible ratings, it's most likely cancelled and leaving little hope for a second season. Interestingly, series star Tyler Labine seemed to have known the bad news was coming.

Sons of Tucson revolves around Ron Snuffkin (Labine), a sporting goods clerk who lives in his car and owes money to a loan shark. He's hired by three boys (Benjamin Stockham, Frank Dolce, and Matthew Levy) to play their father for a school meeting after their real dad goes to jail for banking fraud. The series also features Sarayu Rao, Edwin Habacon, and Natalie Martinez .

The sitcom got off to a poor start in the ratings with just a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.47 million viewers. The second installment dropped even lower,

Fox's Sons of Tucson Episodes 1-3 Review

While in recent years Fox has had considerable success with its slate of animated sitcoms, they seem to have struggled to find similar success in live-action output. New series Sons of Tucson kicks off tonight after Family Guy and shares a little in common with the network's most recent yet aging success, Malcolm in the Middle. Not only is former Malcolm star Justin Berfield an executive producer on Sons of Tucson but his fellow executive producer and director Todd Holland also spent some years with the show. Sadly though, this shared lineage does not translate to a great series as the series is more unsettling than funny.

Tonight's premiere is the weakest of the first three Tucson episodes as it is forced to set up the show's unlikely concept. Central character Ron (Tyler Labine, Reaper) begins the episode homeless, living in his car and badly in debt to a local tough guy.

TV Review: Fox’s ‘Sons of Tucson’ Decent But Unmemorable

Chicago – Tyler Labine’s lead character on the new Fox sitcom “Sons of Tucson” is not exactly the same as his ‘Sock’ from the tragically canceled “Reaper” but the two could easily be brothers. They have so much in common in their style and delivery that one almost wishes this was a true “Reaper” spin-off just so Ray Wise could make a guest appearance in the future. At least then I’d tune again. Now I’m not so sure.

TV Rating: 2.5/5.0

I’ve reviewed hundreds of new shows in my decade of covering television and rarely have I been more undecided on a sitcom after three episodes. The fact is that the crowded television marketplace dictates that indecision means death. With so many choices for your time, if you’re not hooked right away then you’re probably not coming back. It may not mean that “Sons of Tucson

The Sons Of Tucson Are Charming Enough in the First 3 Episodes of Fox’s Newest Sitcom

Fox has allotted one of its plummest timeslots for Sons of Tucson. The new comedy will air Sundays after ratings smash Family Guy, in effect marring the “Animation Domination” moniker. However, while the characters are live-action, their actions do not fall too far outside the realm of cartoon. Essentially a family comedy without the nuisance of parental guidance, Tucson shoots for the delicate balance between wacky and sentiment that Modern Family nails weekly over on ABC. In the first three episodes, Tucson proves that this blended family is good for at least a few laughs each week.

Find out just how good after the break.

Frank Dolce, Matthew Levy, and Benjamin Stockham star as the three Gunderson boys: responsible Gary, sensitive Brandon, and violent Bobby. Mrs. Gunderson died long ago, and Mr. Gunderson has been sent to prison for white collar crime, leaving our young protagonists as virtual orphans with a cashflow.

Catch A 7 Minute Preview of Fox’s ‘Sons of Tucson’

Many people were saddened when the comedy/sci-fi series Reaper was taken off the air. Mostly because it was a funny and ambitious show, but also because that meant we wouldn’t get any more of Tyler Labine reprising his role as “Sock.” It looks like that hole will finally be filled, as he’s playing a very similar character in the new Fox sitcom Sons of Tucson.

The show looks to bring in elements of some of America’s favorite family situation comedies. From a Fox press release:

In the tradition of “Malcolm in the Middle” and “The Bernie Mac Show,” Sons Of Tucson is a family comedy about three brothers who hire a charming, wayward schemer to stand in as their father when their real one goes to prison. What begins as a simple business relationship evolves into a family like no other.

Alongside Labine, the show stars Quarantine’s Benjamin Stockham,
