Andy Barker P.I. Premiering Tomorrow

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Set your Tivo's. One of the mid-season pickups that we have been hearing great buzz over premiers tomorrow night and stars Andy Richter, the one-time sidekick of Conan O'Brien, in his very own sitcom called "Andy Barker P.I." Replacing "30 Rock" in the 9:30 time slot on NBC, this show does have to battle March Madness, but hello, that's what Tivo is for!

Conan O'Brien is the series co-creator and executive producer and Andy Richter portrays Andy Barker, an earnest, hard-working CPA who is mistaken for a retired private detective. Comedy ensues and this great ensemble cast, with credits including everything from "Ellen" to "Will & Grace" and "Arrested Development" makes you laugh from the get-go.

You can catch Andy tonight on Conan's show.
