About a Boy Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m.
This season, NBC is adding two family-themed shows to its line-up, but its first, About a Boy, isn’t appropriate for the whole family – at least during the pilot episode. Still, it’s a charming story with a lot of potential. Based on the best-selling novel by Nick Hornby ("High Fidelity," "An Education"), written and produced by Jason Katims ("Friday Night Lights," "Parenthood"), and directed by Jon Favreau ("Iron Man," "Revolution") Boy is a coming of age story with heart.
