Season Finale Thursday, May 11 at 9:30 PM ET/PT on CBS
In the season finale, “Poison Fire Teats Universe,” when Colleen and Matt miss all the flights to Mexico for their wedding, they question if they will ever get married. Also, Greg and Jen get into trouble when they share a cookie with a fellow plane passenger who has a severe allergic reaction to it, Joan and John rush their dog to the vet after he swallows Matt’s wedding ring, and the Hughes family moves into Tyler and Clementine’s tiny house when a fire breaks out in their kitchen. Singer Richard Marx guest stars as Buddy Daiquiri, a charming hotel lounge singer.
LIFE IN PIECES is a comedy about one big happy family and its sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments as told by its various members. Of the three siblings, middle child Matt has finally proposed to his true love, Colleen; his coddled youngest brother, Greg, and his wife, Jen, are overwhelmed by the surprising news that they are pregnant with their second child as Greg finds himself suddenly unemployed; and the eldest, Heather, and her husband, Tim, have their hands full with three children and are coming to terms with their oldest son announcing that he and his girlfriend eloped just after graduating from high school.
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 members’ 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.
