My Boys follows the life of Chicago sportswriter PJ Franklin, and her group of close friends, almost all of whom are men. The tomboy-ish PJ is usually most comfortable as one of the guys, but sometimes that leads to romantic complications, and that’s when she turns to her best girlfriend, Stephanie.
November 28, 2006-September 12, 2010 (four seasons, 49 episodes) on TBS
Seasons 1-3 are available on DVD.
My Boys premiered in 2006 as part of a renewed initiative to push original comedy programming on TBS. It received positive reviews and high ratings, and aired a second season the following year; the two were eventually retroactively combined as the official first season when released on DVD. The official second season followed in 2008, and the third in 2009. For the 2010 fourth season, Jim Gaffigan left the cast. Following declining ratings, the show was canceled at the end of its fourth season.
