In the new NBC comedy series “Welcome to the Family,” Mike O’Malley plays Dan Yoder, a father whose 18-year-old daughter announces she is pregnant by her boyfriend. Once the teens break the news to their families, both sides try adjusting to their new situation, which goes anything but smoothly as they all struggle to get along.
Mike O’Malley (“Glee,” “My Name is Earl”) sat down with us for a hilarious interview to chat about the show, how being a dad in real life compares to being a dad on television, and how he wound up naked on Episode 3 airing next week. Yupp — naked! “It’s really fun when they put in the script that you naked is a point of hilarity,” O’Malley joked.
Make sure to check it all out in our video below, and tune in to “Welcome to the Family” Thursday nights at 8:30pm ET on NBC.

Stars of NBC’s “Chicago Fire” — Taylor Kinney and Jesse Spencer — will be heating up the Fall season with new episodes, so we tracked them down for few teasers on the new season. AND we got the skinny on the three real fire house dogs that are competing for a chance to appear alongside the studs in an upcoming episode, thanks to the TODAY Show.
Surrounded by the adorable pups, Taylor and Jesse filled us in on the new season of “Chicago Fire,” and their own pet history. Working in Chicago most of the time, the guys said they have little free time for a dog of their own, but longtime dog owner Taylor Kinney said he hopes to get one in the near future.
“Someday soon,” Taylor told us. “I’d love to have another one.”
