‘How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)’

Dear ABC, thanks for bringing television viewers this new generation-gap comedy about a newly divorced single mom (Sarah Chalke) who moves back in with her parents (Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett). We’ll give it a try, but if the show is any good, can you please nurture it and not move it all over the schedule (ahem, “Happy Endings”) or outright cancel it (“Don’t Trust the B …”).
