John Lennon once wrote, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” For three men entering the second act of their lives, those words are starting to hit home in TNT’s newest original series, MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE. This wry drama stars Emmy® winner Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), Golden Globe® winner Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise) and Emmy winner Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street, TNT’s Salem’s Lot). It marks a return to series television for Romano, who created MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE with Everybody Loves Raymond Emmy winner Mike Royce. The two serve as executive producers, along with Rory Rosegarten and Cary Hoffman.

MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE explores the unique bonds of male friendship among three men experiencing the changes and challenges of mid-life. They have been best friends since college but now, in their 40s, are navigating through the second act of their lives. Joe (Romano) is a friendly, slightly neurotic, recently separated father of two who had dreams of being a professional golfer. Now he owns and runs a party store. Terry (Bakula) is a laid-back, handsome actor who seems to breeze through life (and women). Lately, he’s spending more time working as a temp than as an actor. And Owen (Braugher) is an overstressed husband and father of three who endures constant criticism from his father, for whom he works as a car salesman.

These friends face very different challenges. Joe, who currently lives in a hotel, tries to connect with his kids and is dipping his toe in the dating pool, while also struggling with the gambling problem that may have ended his marriage. The unmarried Terry scoffs at domestic issues but sometimes wonders if his own single life is all it’s cracked up to be. Owen does everything he can to climb the sales board at his father’s car dealership and keep his cool over the seemingly endless renovation project in the home he can barely afford. Through it all, these men are there for each other when it counts.men of a certain age, Ray Romano, Scott Bakula, Andre Braugher, tnt, middle age dramamen of a certain age, Ray Romano, Scott Bakula, Andre Braugher, tnt, middle age drama

  1. I was lucky enough last year to get an advanced copy of this show from TNT for a review. I really enjoy the show even though, there is just something about Ray Romano rubs me the wrong way (like he is trying to hard to act). I can relate to the plot and have to say that cable TV is, in my opinion better than the networks with their originality.

    I must admit I watch 90% of all my TV viewing on the web, I can’t stand the commercials and even with a DVR it’s a pain to fast forward through them. Call me lazy or spoiled or both.

  2. I can’t believe Im going to say this – but I actually LIKE certain commercials! And when Im watching TV, commercials give me time to run outside for a cigarette!
