Default CBS Fall Pilot Review: The Unicorn - Premieres September 26

The Unicorn - Thursdays at 8:30PM ET/PT on CBS
Premieres Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 8:30PM ET/PT

The Unicorn is a single-camera comedy about a tight-knit group of best friends and family who help Wade (Walton Goggins) embrace his "new normal" in the wake of the loss of his wife one year ago. As a sometimes ill-equipped but always devoted single parent to his two adolescent daughters, he is taking the major step of dating again. To Wade's amazement, he's a hot commodity with women, and his friends explain that he’s the perfect single guy – a "unicorn": employed, attractive and with a proven track record of commitment. With his daughters and best friends rooting him on and hoping he'll find happiness again, Wade and his healing heart are ready to try life... and love... again.

It sounds like something different and timely. I'm willing to give it a shot!

The Unicorn is the rare network comedy that starts off really good

The Walton Goggins-led CBS comedy may revolve around a hot widower who is a "unicorn," but it might be a "Trojan horse for a new sort of hangout comedy, the kind that takes into account families that don’t fit into the nuclear mold (not to mention, the divorce rate)," says Danette Chavez, adding: "The Unicorn pilot has a few subtle but potent touches, like an empty freezer that marks the passage of time and Wade’s rapidly dwindling denial about the fact that he does need to move on with his life. The writing is smarter than you might expect from the first outing for a network sitcom (if you don’t believe me, check out virtually any other half-hour pilot that aired this week)."

Anybody watched this? I saw it in TV Guide but I forgot to watch it. I have the CBS app, is it worth checking out?

I like it and it has potential but it's not memorable - yet.
