"Life in Pieces"
Thursday, April 6 at 9:30 PM ET/PT on CBS
Greg Grunberg Returns as John and Joan’s Annoying Nephew, Mikey
          In the episode, “Favorite Vision Miguel Matchmaker,” Greg becomes frazzled when Lark rebuffs him and only wants to be held by Jen. Also, Heather refuses to get the reading glasses she desperately needs; Colleen introduces Matt to her eccentric father so he can get his blessing for their upcoming nuptials; and when Cousin Mikey (Greg Grunberg) goes through a tough breakup, Joan tries to set him up on a date, on “LIFE IN PIECES.”

         “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.
