Storyline

Tiny, O-shaped Tony Kleinman and his mate, former professional jock Bernie Widman, still a popular womanizer, co-present a TV talk show in Philadelphia, mainly devoted to sports and athletes of all disciplines. Tony compensates his size by a big mouth, often cleverly phrasing but alas almost as often too quickly yapping, as all too often he only talks himself into more trouble, especially at home, where he faces a well-meaning wife, who happens to be 'always right' more often then a man can stand, especially as she isn't often really wrong, and a tomboy daughter driving anyone to despair, mouthier then him, devious, as assertive and selfish as only spoiled teenage girls can be, and convinced poor devoted dad is the scum of the earth, too embarrassing to take any notice of if it can be helped, and she can get away with an awful lot. Tony's firstborn, Mickey, is a darling boy, and a gifted golfer, but as meek as a lamb, as ambitious as a clam and as assertive as a punching ball: the ... Written by KGF Vissers

Mark Harmon had been in contention for the role of Tony. However, he was deemed "way too good looking" for the role. Tony Kornheiser, whose life was the basis of the show, was asked to read for the role. But the sportswriter turned the offer down stating he did not want to move to Los Angeles. See more »

A cast that really clicks together!
13 February 2005 | by VedekSee all my reviews

I have watched all the "Listen Up" episodes to date. It started, as most TV sitcoms, rather slowly, but now the cast have hit their stride. The teenage son, Mickey, played by Will Rothhaar, has gradually become a main character of the ensemble cast. Rothhaar is a gifted comedian with truly inspired deadpan delivery. He's on his way to becoming a Major Talent, someday! The show's episodes are now well-crafted plots acted out by cast members who are really "clicking" together. In one recent episode, Mickey dated a girlfriend who turned out to be into Civil War Reenactment; she took him to Gettysburg in full 1860's regalia, and when he walked into the room dressed as a Confederate soldier, I nearly fell out of my recliner laughing. The look on his face was perfect! The boyfriend who can't believe he's really doing this for his girlfriend. Every show is a gem, now. Watch "Listen Up!" regularly and you'll find yourself becoming a delighted fan.
