In case you’ve missed any of the previously aired episodes of CMT‘s first-ever scripted sitcom, Working Class, starring Melissa Peterman and Ed Asner, you’re in luck Monday, February 14 as CMT presents a two-hour mini-marathon of the show’s first four outings.
Beginning at 9pm/8c, CMT will rebroadcast the series’ pilot episode, The Buddy System, as Carli (Peterman) settles into her new job at a grocery store deli, she is once again courted by her former high school flame (Ben King). Complicating matters is Carli‘s budding interest with her boss (Patrick Fabian).
At 9:30pm/8:30c, Carli agrees to go on a date with the family dentist (Ryan Stiles) in an effort to get a better deal on her son’s dental work in episode 2, Dental Claims. Meanwhile, Carli‘s brother, Nick (Steve Kazee) reluctantly agrees to oversee Carli‘s youngest son’s play date. Reluctance turns to full-on agreeability when the play date’s mom turns out to be a sexy single mother.
The mini-marathon continues at 10pm/9c with episode 3 titled Sugar Mama. Fans of Reba McEntire‘s long-running former sitcom, Reba, are in for a treat when the country crooner-turned sitcom star visits her former co-star, Peterman, in a bit of role reversal. You see, on Reba‘s show,Peterman played Reba‘s ex’s new girlfriend. Well, when Carli‘s ex-hubby (Dukes of Hazzard star, John Schneider) shows up with a new girlfriend (Reba McEntire), the tides are turned. As cougar-esque Renee, McEntire tries to win over Carli‘s kids with expensive gifts. I say cougar-esque because in reality, Reba is only five years Schneider‘s senior. Monday’s second look at Working Class‘ first four episodes wraps at 9:30pm/8:30c with a rebroadcast of the the show’s most recent February 11 episode, An Eye for An Eye. While the series’ pilot first episode introduced veteran actor Ed Asner as Hank, Carli‘s super-market co-worker and neighbor, he’s basically been relegated to occasional quips and brief appearances. This episode brings his curmudgeonly acting talents front and center when he and Carli butt heads after Hank suspects her son of a bothersome neighborhood prank. Assuming her son is innocent, she confronts her son, who admits to the mischief. Feeling bad, Carli encourages the family to try a little harder to be nice to their neighbor. Things get interesting when Carli learns of some potentially disturbing behavior from Hank‘s past.
Following Monday’s Valentine’s night marathon, Working Class returns to its regular night and time on CMT this Friday, February 18 at 8pm/7c with with the premiere of episode #5,The Lunch Lady.
