Sarah Chalke, who became known from "Roseanne" as the second Becky as well as nine seasons of "Scrubs," returns to sitcoms Wednesdays on ABC's "How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life)."
The blonde Canadian was a teen when she played Becky, and now her character, single mom Polly, has a daughter of her own on this sitcom, modeled after creator Claudia Lonow's life.
"It is a really cool experience as an actor because there is so much info there, and there is so much more to draw from," Chalke tells Zap2it. "Claudia was telling me about the script and her life, and basically she showed up on her parents' doorstep and said, 'I hope it's not a bad time for you. It is for me.' "
Standing six feet and eight and a half inches, Brad Garrett is one towering -- and talented -- standup comic. Garrett has worked with everyone from Frank Sinatra to Diana Ross, but he's best known for his role as deep-voiced Robert Barone on the much-loved CBS sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond."
Now Garrett has a new show, "How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life)," in which he plays Max, an eccentric stepfather. In last week's premiere episode on ABC, Max and his wife Elaine, played by Elizabeth Perkins, see their lives turned upside down when daughter Polly, played by Sarah Chalke, returns home to live with them. Chalke is a single, newly divorced mother of a young daughter.
Huff/Post50 had the pleasure of speaking with Garrett, who turns 53 on Sunday, about his career, his new show and his favorite pastimes.

Dysfunctional families and embarrassing parents have always made for prime sitcom fodder, but for "How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)"creator Claudia Lonlow, the inspiration for her new show hit a little closer to home. That's because almost 16 years ago, Lonlow and her young daughter moved back in with her parents.
And that's precisely what happens to Sarah Chalke's Polly, who, along with her daughter, moves in with her mom Elaine (Elizabeth Perkins) and stepfather Max (Brad Garrett) for the foreseeable future, thanks to a divorce and the pressures of a lackluster economy. But it's a decision Polly immediately regrets thanks to her parents, who have a much more laissez-faire approach to child-rearing than she does.
Of course, while much is made of Polly's frustrating parents, Garrett and Perkins see things a little differently -- it's Polly who's imposing on them. HuffPost TV »

ABC launched a late-season entry in the post-"Modern Family" time slot, which should guarantee some eyeballs on hand to watch Sarah Chalke argue with Brad Garrett and Elizabeth Perkins. The trio star in "How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)," which should win the award for longest show title of the season.
Chalke plays Polly, who moves back in with her parents after her marriage falls apart. Six months later, she's still there. In the premiere, though, she finally agrees to go on a date, only she doesn't want her young daughter to know. Unfortunately, her parents are only barely functional as adults, and so they quickly blow the secret -- along with the truth about Santa Claus, for some reason.
Buddy TV thinks the show is as funny as its title is long, but E! Online is a little more cautious. They worry »

Sarah Chalke, of "Roseanne" and "Scrubs" fame, is back on a network comedy with "How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)". She stars as Polly, a divorced single mom who has to move back in with her parents.
Said parents are Elaine (Elizabeth Perkins) and stepdad Max (Brad Garrett), a pair of off-beat hippies who are very free-wheeling with their sexual exploits. Polly brings with her daughter Natalie (Rachel Eggleston) and so begins a modern-day familial unit, as Polly tries to put her life back together.
What did you think? We find the cast utterly likable and therefore are rooting for this one to work out. It's not necessarily laugh-your-butt-off hilarious, but it's cute and charming.

College students, start taking notes! ABC's new sitcom How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) debuted Wednesday night, and aside from officially becoming a contender for most annoying show title ever, it brought the lovely Scrubs alum Sarah Chalke back to us.

Now that you've seen the premiere, we're curious to know what you thought of How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)...

Are you interested in the finer points of How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life)?
ABC’s newest comedy, which debuted Wednesday at 9:30/8:30c, stars Scrubs alum Sarah Chalke as Polly, a neurotic, newly single mother who rounds up daughter Natalie (Rachel Eggleston) and decamps to her childhood home in the wake of her divorce.
“I’m not a failure; I’m trendy,” she tells us via voiceover six months after begging her no-filter mother Elaine (played by Weeds‘ Elizabeth Perkins) and laid-back stepfather Max (Everybody Loves Raymond‘s Brad Garrett) to take her in. »

I'm more than a little under the weather today, but even at full health, I doubt I'd have the enthusiasm to write a full review of ABC's "How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)," which debuted tonight in the post-"Modern Family" timeslot. It's a sitcom featuring a bunch of actors I often like (Sarah Chalke, Brad Garrett, Elizabeth Perkins), given material that's alternately limp and frantic. (Though Chalke's always been frantic; it's just that "Scrubs" knew how to turn that to the show's advantage in a way most of her other gigs have not.) Garrett demonstrated »

Sarah Chalke makes her regular return to TV with "How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life)" this week.
"How To Live With Your Parents" follows Chalke's Polly, who's just recently divorced her irresponsible husband Julian (Jon Dore). Due to financial struggles, she and her five-year-old daughter Natalie (Rachel Eggleston) move in with her vulgar mom Elaine (Elizabeth Perkins) and uber-chill stepfather Max (Brad Garrett). But the uptight young mother's parenting ideals clash with Elaine and Max's improvisational and eccentric lifestyle. (As you've probably seen in previews, there is underwear in lunchboxes and coffee at bedtime when Natalie is under Elaine and Max's rule -- or lack thereof.)
Below, Chalke opens up to The Huffington Post about her return to TV, »

Arrested Development’s influence is all over ABC’s likable but unfortunately titled How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) (ABC, Wednesdays, 9:30). Fast cutting, cute onscreen I.D. tags, plinky-plonky music, winsome narration: It’s all here, plus Modern Family’s conventional-unconventional view of suburban life. One of the show’s three executive producers is Arrested Development vet Brian Grazer, but I doubt his presence alone explains the affinity; more likely this is just how creator-executive producer Claudia Lonow (Rude Awakenings, The War at Home) saw the story. Whatever the motivation, the result is quite likable, if knowingly obnoxious at times.Sarah Chalke plays the heroine and narrator, Polly, a recent divorcée with a young daughter named Natalie (Rachel Eggleston). She moves back in with her mom, Elaine (Elizabeth Perkins), and stepdad, Max (Brad Garrett), thinking it’ll be a temporary safe harbor, but »

Despite its terrible, Twitter-unfriendly title, ABC's "How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life)" is decidedly not terrible. Premiering Wednesday, April 3 at 9:30 p.m. Est, "How To Live With Your Parents" embraces its stars -- comedy faves Sarah Chalke, Elizabeth Perkins, and Brad Garrett -- and gives them room to do what they do best.
Chalke plays Polly, a recently-divorced single mother left with no other choice but to move back in with her quirky, hippie, sexually liberated mother Elaine and stepfather Max. Polly's overprotective, stifling view of parenting is obviously a sharp contrast to Elaine's free-spirited philosophy. In the first episode, Polly leaves her daughter Natalie with her mother when she goes out on her first post-divorce date. Obviously, hijinks ensue.
Chicago – How do so many talented comedians end up making such an awful sitcom as ABC’s “How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life)”? The show is proof that the writer is still the king of television and that even a cast this notable can’t save cliched, poorly-written comedy.
Television Rating: 1.5/5.0
“How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life)” almost plays like a spoof of a comedy within a smarter show. It’s that cliched. And there should be a law against the number of jokes about a missing testicle as there are in the premiere. With echoes of “Meet the Fockers” and a long-gone era of situation comedy, “How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life)” just isn’t funny. And that’s coming from someone who has absolutely adored some of the work done »

The tough economy and failed marriages have forced plenty of grown children to move back home with their parents, which becomes the linchpin of ABC’s “We’ll save money on marketing with the long-winded title” sitcom “How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life).” Goofy, moderately sweet and too rarely funny, it’s a natural thematic companion to “Modern Family,” if not an especially strong one. On the plus side, a “Life” sentence in this case would merely be the next several years, but enough shows have flopped in the half-hour to temper expectations for a happy ending.
Admittedly, there’s not much new about a slightly uptight kid having to deal with his or her hippy-dippy, flower-powered parents, so the main flourishes in the script by showrunner Claudia Lonow (“Accidentally on Purpose”) are what kind of quirks she gives to Elaine (Elizabeth Perkins) and »
