NBC, please save us a seat for Friday Night Dinner.

The network has cast a pair of multiple-time Emmy winners on its upcoming, Greg Daniels-produced sitcom, Friday Night Dinner, as Allison Janney (West Wing) and Tony Shalhoub (Monk) will play the patriarchs of a family that, well, meets for dinner every Friday night.

Daniels brought The Office over from Great Britain and is basing Friday Night Dinner on another U.K. hit by the same name.

Gee Friday night plus family dinner? Sounds like NBC is trying to counter-program CBS and Blue Bloods
