‘Life in Pieces’ Episode Guide (Dec. 7): Heather Tries to Become Tyler’s ‘Cool’ Best Friend

“Waffle Permission Kidless Boyfriend” (12/07/17) – When Heather tries to become Tyler’s cool best friend, things take an awkward turn. Also, Jen and Greg get their first overnight away from Lark. Meanwhile, Matt and Colleen regret returning their wedding presents for cash when they learn what John and Joan hid inside their gift.

And later, Tim goes overboard when keeping a watchful eye on Samantha and her boyfriend, on “Life in Pieces,” Thursday, Dec. 7 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

“Waffle Permission Kidless Boyfriend” was written by Elizabeth Tippet and directed by John Riggi.

CBS’s “Life in Pieces” is a single-camera comedy about one big happy family and their sometimes awkward, often hilarious and ultimately beautiful milestone moments as told by its various members.

Of the three siblings, middle child Matt may have just found his true love, his co-worker, Colleen; his coddled youngest brother, Greg, and his wife, Jen, are overwhelmed by the birth of their first child; and the eldest, Heather, and her husband, Tim, are dreading their impending empty nest so much, they’re considering having another baby.

Their parents are Joan, the family’s adoring matriarch who would do anything for her kids – as long as she agrees with it – and John, the gregarious patriarch who’s searching for ways to soften the blow of turning 70. As the family’s lives unfold in four short stories each week, they try to savor these little pieces of time that flash by but stay with you forever, because these moments add up to what life’s all about.

“Life in Pieces” stars Dianne Wiest (Joan), James Brolin (John), Zoe Lister-Jones (Jen), Colin Hanks (Greg), Angelique Cabral (Colleen), Thomas Sadoski (Matt), Betsy Brandt (Heather), Dan Bakkedahl (Tim), Niall Cunningham (Tyler), Holly J. Barrett (Samantha), Giselle Eisenberg (Sophia), and Hunter King (Clementine).

Justin Adler, Aaron Kaplan, Jeff Morton and Brad Copeland serve as Executive Producers of “Life in Pieces.” The comedy series was created by Justin Adler. “Life in Pieces” is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Kapital Entertainment.
