 Men of a Certain Age (Wednesday, 10/9c, TNT)

This wonderful drama about the trials and tribulations of three best friends and their midlife crises returns for the second half of its season two. The first six episodes finished in January.

What can we expect ? Joe ( Ray Romano), the divorced, slightly neurotic party-store owner and father of two, finds himself drawn into a friendship with his neighbor and former bookie, who has been diagnosed with cancer. Joe is also working hard to rekindle his professional golf career by training for a spot on the senior tour. Though he has managed to overcome his gambling problem, a new temptation arises.

Owen (Andre Braugher), who has a wonderful wife (LisaGay Hamilton) and three young children, is finally starting to assert himself after his father turned over the keys to the family automobile dealership. But so far, the job has been a nightmare. Resistant to the idea of retiring, Owen’s father (Richard Gant) constantly tries to undermine his authority and has told Owen that the dealership is financially in the red.

Terry (ScottBakula) has decided to give up his acting career and go to work for Owen as a car salesman, a job that seems well suited to his ample charms and need for stability. Terry also reconnected with Erin (Melinda McGraw), a woman who once played opposite him in a popular commercial. But their relationship has left him confused about the possibility of pursuing a life together.
