Patricia Heaton is trying yet another attempt back into the sitcom world with the new ABC show, The Middle. This time around, she's dragging Scrubs' Neil Flynn in with her as her character's husband.
So how do these two play off each other? Actually surprisingly well. From these two clips from the show, it feels very Malcom in the Middle. Oh wait, they even kept The Middle.
In this first clip, Frankie (Heaton) and Mike (Flynn) discuss Frankie's fading looks when her new driver's license picture arrives:
