Television review: 'Sullivan & Son' a tired toast to 'Cheers'

The new TBS sitcom gets mired in crass cultural stereotypes in a misguided attempt to re-create the easy barroom bonhomie of its forerunner.

For all its Big Steel past, Pittsburgh is a lovely cosmopolitan city with just as many museums, theaters and cultural touchstones — the birthplace of Gertrude Stein! — as serious sports franchises. So it absolutely deserves a better show than TBS' shameless "Cheers" knockoff comedy "Sullivan & Son," which premieres Thursday.
