really? I had a hard time looking at Archer at first without seeing Sam Beckett, and he was in QL longer than ENT.

it helped that Archer never DID sing or play piano or wear pantyhose and high heels, etc...

Sid should guest star on this show at least once-He'd be the one the others would tease that he's 'just a kid' compared to them

Archer never gets the girl, Terry (his new character) seems to always get the girl. Bwahahahahahaaa.

I really liked it. People talking about real things with humor added. Terry (SB's character) couldn't be more different than Archer.  :laugh:

TNT's Critically Acclaimed MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE
Draws 5.4 Million Viewers and Scores Ad-Supported Cable's
Top New Series Launch of 2009 among Households and Adults 25-54


After receiving strong reviews from critics across the country, TNT's MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE proved equally popular with viewers Monday night. More than 5.4 million viewers tuned in for the 10 p.m. (ET/PT) premiere of the series, which ranked as ad-supported cable's top new series launch of 2009 among households (4.1 million) and adults 25-54 (2.6 million). Among key adult demos, MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE delivered strong growth over its lead-in, a new episode of THE CLOSER.

The response from viewers and critics to MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE has been amazing, said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). I'm proud of everyone involved with this wonderful series, especially its creators, Ray Romano and Mike Royce, and the great cast headed by Ray, Andre Braugher and Scott Bakula.

Interesting Scott Bakula Article

Men of a Certain Age - Scott Bakula Reveals His Worst Christmas Ever
By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
Dec 12, 2009 Bookmark and Share

With the first season of his excellent new TNT "Men of a Certain Age" series in the can, Scott Bakula is making plans for the holidays -- and remembering what goes down as his worst Christmas ever.

"It happened when I was about 17," recalls the actor, who'll be heading with his wife and four children to his St. Louis roots for year-end festivities. "It was Christmas Eve and I got into an accident with my parents' car. I came home after they were asleep and held a great debate with myself about when I should tell them about the accident ...'Merry Christmas and, oh, by the way, Dad, I smashed your car."

If his memory book retains vivid images of that unfortunate Christmas, it is counterbalanced by a flood of memories of happier yuletides.

"I've been very lucky," says the star of such shows as "Quantum Leap" and "Star Trek: Enterprise." "I grew up with much love and family around me. I still recall vividly my grandparents' car driving up to our house and my grandfather unloading presents for us all. He was such a stickler for gift-wrapping that he made all the bows and made sure the patterns on the paper lined up exactly. All the gifts were so beautifully put together that I hated to open them."

MEANWHILE: While Bakula and Andre Braugher are free from "Men of a Certain Age" duties for the time being, their co-star, Ray Romano, is still toiling on the show about three buddies who face the challenges of middle age. As Bakula explains, "Principle production wrapped a few weeks ago, but Ray, as a writer, executive producer and star of the show, is still busy working behind the scenes." It was Romano's decision to limit the season to 10 episodes, says Bakula. "And it's easy to understand why when you realize how much of himself he puts into the show."

I can't believe I'm saying this, but that show didn't suck.

It's really not my thing and I probably won't watch it, but there was some quality lurking in there.  Considering I went in thinking this was the dumbest looking series imaginable, that's a pretty big statement.
