"Life in Pieces"
Season Premiere Thursday, November 2 at 9:30 PM ET/PT on CBS
 
          In the season premiere, “Settlement Pacifier Attic Unsyncing,” when the entire Hughes family moves into John and Joan’s home after their kitchen is destroyed, their presence creates chaos for Joan. Also, Matt and Colleen are set to receive a huge monetary settlement from Colleen’s fall off the motel balcony on their wedding night; John tries to get Sophia back on track when she starts misbehaving; Tyler and Clementine make a surprise announcement to the family; and Jen and Greg attempt to persuade Lark to get rid of her pacifier.

 

           LIFE IN PIECES is a comedy about one big happy family and their sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments as told by its various members. Of the three siblings, middle child Matt has finally married his true love, Colleen. The coddled youngest brother, Greg, and his wife, Jen, are struggling to find the balance between work and raising their toddler. The eldest, Heather, and her husband, Tim, have their hands full with three children.

          To make matters crazier, their oldest son and his wife are living on their property in a tiny house. Their parents are Joan, the family’s adoring matriarch who would do anything for her kids – as long as she agrees with it – and John, the gregarious patriarch who’s searching for ways to spend more time with his family. As the family’s lives unfold in four short stories each week, they try to savor these little pieces of time that flash by but stay with you forever, because these moments add up to what life’s all about.
