'Fisher' is a Heart-Warming Quirky Comedy

11-year-old Henry Fisher (Eli Baker) and Mel Fisher
 (J.K. Simmons) star in “Growing Up Fisher.”

Growing Up Fisher Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m.

NBC’s other tryout is better suited for families. Too bad that it airs at 9:30 p.m. Like most of TV these days, the Fishers are not your typical family. The show is inspired by Executive Producer, DJ Nash’s own life growing up with a family that is ironically drawn closer together by divorce. Jason Bateman narrates the show as 11-year-old Henry Fisher. His father Mel (J.K. Simmons) has been blind since the age of 12, but he never lets that stop him from doing, well, anything including chopping down trees and parallel parking. His mother Joyce (Jenna Elfman) is going through her own mid-life crisis trying to “find herself.” His sister, Katie (Ava Deluca-Verley), has the unfortunate job of mothering her own mother.
