Talking and laughing about TV with Julie and Brandy from THE PEOPLE’S COUCH!

FOX premieres two of the season’s best new shows at 8/7c and 8:30/7:30c tonight – the charming GRANDFATHERED and the immediately likable THE GRINDER. Check out My Take on the two… John Stamos is back on TV as the lead in this series which finds his bachelor Jimmy learning that he not only has a son after a relationship that went sour in the 90s, but that his son has also had a child, making him an instant grandfather.  His

What Is Marissa Watching This Fall?
