From Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild (the creators of the movie TED), DADS explored "the often treacherous terrain of the father-son landscape." The multi-camera comedy followed "two childhood best friends now in their mid-30s whose relatively stable lives get turned upside down when their inappropriate and pain-in-the-neck patriarchs move in." Starring Seth Green as Eli and Giovanni Ribisi as Warner, with Martin Mull as Crawford, Vanessa Lachey as Camila, Peter Riegert as David, and Tonita Castro as Edna.
ENLISTED is described as "an irreverent and heartfelt single-camera comedy about three brothers on a small Florida Army post and the group of Misfits who surround them." Featuring Geoff Stults as Staff Sergeant Pete Hill, Chris Lowell as Corporal Derrick Hill, Parker Young as Private Randy Hill, Keith David as Command Sergeant Major Donald Cody, and Angelique Cabral as Staff Sergeant Jill Perez.
The new single-camera comedy based on Justin Halpern's autobiographical book, "I Suck at Girls", Surviving Jack came in at mid-season. "Set in the 1990s, the ensemble series is about a man becoming a dad, as his son is becoming a man, in a time before 'coming of age' was something you could Google." Featuring Christopher Meloni as Jack Dunlevy, Rachael Harris as Joanne, Connor Buckley as Frankie, Claudia Lee as Rachel and more.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the only freshman comedy from the past year to stay with the network for another season.
