‘Life in Pieces’ Episode Guide (Jan. 18): Jen Creates an Awkward Situation For Tyler

“Goose Friends Auction Fog” (01/18/18) – When Jen sings in Tyler’s band, she gets caught up in the excitement and creates an awkward situation for him.

Also, John and Greg decide to brew beer together, Matt donates one of his paintings to a silent auction for Tim’s medical charity, and Heather becomes jealous of Joan’s friendship with a classmate, on “Life in Pieces,” Thursday, Jan. 18 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

“Goose Friends Auction Fog” was written by Liz Hara and directed by Ken Wittingham.

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.
