  • Rob Lowe Accepts Best Show That Got Canceled on Behalf of ‘The Grinder’

    It was a sad day when Fox said goodbye to The Grinder, one of the best-reviewed shows of 2015, after it found its fine comedy groove last spring. As we wrote when we nominated it for Best Show That Got Canceled in 2016 in our reader-voted Yahooies, “Rob Lowe’s starring stint as actor turned wannabe lawyer Dean Sanderson seemed like the television role he had been waiting for. Ditto for fellow ’80s star Fred Savage, who played his brotherly other half in this clever comedy that riffed on melodramatic procedurals and sibling rivalry. ...

  • How 'The Grinder' Found Its Fine Comedy Groove

    The Grinder is a unique item right now. It’s got a high-concept that takes a bit of explaining—actor who plays a lawyer on TV (Rob Lowe) goes home to help his brother (Fred Savage) at his small law firm, insinuating himself into both the firm and brother’s home life. The Grinder had the funniest pilot episode I watched leading into this past fall’s TV season.

    Of course, when it comes to Rob Lowe, John Stamos, and Fred Savage, we already know they’re experienced at making a play for our… hard-earned cash. 11. Fred Savage for Pac-Man multi-vitamins/Fruit Roll-Ups/Fruity Marshmallow Krispies/McDonald’s The Grinder star managed to do so many commercials throughout his childhood, we felt a deep need to combine them into one big tie, and embed the Pac-Man vitamins (which, apparently, were so much better for you than Flintstone’s vitamins, mom!) because it was Savage’s first. 10.

  • ‘The Grinder’ Review: Rob Lowe, Fred Savage And Lots of Lawyerly Laughs

    The latter-day career of Rob Lowe has been defined by the role he took in Amy Poehler’s Parks and Recreation.

Now, as Dean Sanderson, Jr. in the season’s funniest fall pilot The Grinder, Lowe is able to broaden out his comedy. If 30 Rock had only been a show about Jenna Maroney, she would have been too, too much, but she was great as a contrast to Liz Lemon.
