Fictional version of Foxworthy runs a heating and air conditioning company in Indiana with Walt Bacon (Matt Clark) and Russ Francis (Matt Borlenghi).

Regulars at home are Foxworthy’s non-redneck wife, nurse Karen (Anita Barone) , their son Matt (Haley Joel Osment), Karen’s randy co-worker Sandi (Sue Murphy) and neighbor (Steve Hytner) whose condescending attitude toward Foxworthy (“Your country humor — pure Americana”) promises to be a running gag, as are Foxworthy’s comebacks. One of the better sequences finds Karen trying to get romantic, suggesting “a bathtub, candles … maybe a little Yanni,” leading to a string of “little Yanni” jokes. ]

Dakin Matthews and Bibi Besch liven up premiere as Karen’s parents, unenamored of Foxworthy, whom they (particularly dad) consider little more than a hillbilly.

Tech credits are OK. The show debuts Tuesday and moves to its regular 8 p.m. Saturday slot this Saturday.

Production: Good news for ABC is that"Foxworthy" is at home on the samenetwork as "Grace Under Fire," and Foxworthy is as agreeable a personality playing himself as Harry Anderson is as humorist Dave Barry. Show needs stronger supporting characters, though: Foxworthy is a reactor.
