The McCarthys

The McCarthys was a CBS sitcom created by Brian Gallivan that starred Tyler Ritter, Joey McIntyre, Jimmy Dunn, Kelen Coleman, Jack McGee and Laurie Metcalf.

The show first premiered on October 30, 2014, but after 11 episodes, it was pulled from the schedule after 11 episodes had aired.

On May 8, 2015, CBS announced the show was cancelled after one season, but the remaining episodes were burned off from July 4 to July 11, 2015.


The series revolved around the McCarthys, a close-knit working class Boston clan whose sports legacy runs deep in the family, but when outspoken father Arthur, a dedicated basketball coach for the fictional Cardinal Hennigan High School decides to take his athletically challenged and openly gay son, Ronny under his wing as his new assistant, the other siblings (who are more sports passionate) start crying foul over their dad's choice.
