Comedian Bill Engvall
will attempt to charm viewers once again by giving a humorous look at what it takes to be a parent in today's world on the second season of The Bill Engvall Show
. The Emmy-nominated sitcom, written and created by Engvall and Michael Leeson (The War of the Roses
), has been renewed last September and will begin the first of its 10-episode run tonight at 9pm on TBS.
On the series, Bill Engvall plays Bill Pearson, a family counselor who can't always read his own family. While his profession may give him the advantage to figure out his family, that doesn't mean that he doesn't face the typical parenting issues like allowance controversies, driver's licenses and parking tickets, all while trying to keep the spark alive in his marriage with wife Susan, played by Nancy Travis
(Becker, The Jane Austen Book Club
) and balancing work with family life.
Also featured on The Bill Engvall Show
are the Pearson children, consisting of Lauren, played by Jennifer Lawrence
(The Burning Plain
), Trent, played by Graham Patrick Martin
(The Girl Next Door
) and Bryan, portrayed by Skyler Gisondo
(Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story
), as well as Bob Bledsoe (Saturday Night Live, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story
), who serves as Bill's best friend Tim Meadows
On the second season premiere episode of The Bill Engvall Show
called “But, That's Not Fair,” Bill asks the kids to clean the garage for free. However, they refuse to do Bill's request, driving Bill to punish them by taking away their privileges. At the same time, Bill and Nancy are encountering some cell phone problems. They decide to each go to the store separately to fix but only Susan has success.
