The bald, blind, and pale Jim Gaffigan
may be one giant recessive gene, but in the eyes of CBS that doesn’t make him any less worthy of his own show. This week, the network has ordered a pilot for a new comedy starring the stand-up comedian. The show is by Gaffigan and Peter Tolan
, and will feature Gaffigan as a happily married father of five (just as in real life) living in a two-bedroom apartment in New York. It will be a single-camera comedy.

only around for one more year and Two And A Half Men
