‘The Goldbergs’ Episode Guide (March 15): Erica Receives Her College Acceptance Letters

“Doggie Howser” (03/15/17) – When Erica is getting the bulk of her college acceptance letters, Barry is determined to become a doctor and starts to check out schools with the best medical programs. When Lainey announces she got into a fashion program that doesn’t have a medical school, Barry decides to modify his dream so he can be with Lainey.

But Beverly sabotages his new plan, and Barry and Lainey question their future together. Meanwhile, Murray realizes his love for the dog is greater than his kids since Lucky won’t ever leave for college, on “The Goldbergs,” WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15 (8:00-8:30 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network.

Guest starring in this episode are Tim Meadows as Mr. Glascott, Sam Lerner as Geoff Schwartz, Matt Bush as Andy Cogan, Noah Munck as Naked Rob and Shayne Topp as Matt Bradley.

“Doggie Howser” was written by Steve Basilone and directed by Jay Chandrasekhar.

The VCR-loving, mixtape-making, spandex-wearing Goldbergs are back! For geeky and movie obsessed youngest child Adam (Sean Giambrone), his wonder years were spent documenting the hilarious and awkward antics of his colorful family.

Mom Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey) is at her best when she’s meddling, matchmaking and bedazzling her way through life, while Dad Murray (Jeff Garlin) parents from the comfort of his recliner in his underpants. Oldest sister Erica (Hayley Orrantia) dreams of being a pop star if she can only overcome her secret love of all things uncool.

Then there’s middle child Barry (Troy Gentile) who’s just as in touch with his emotions as he is with his sick rap skills, which is how he landed Erica’s best friend and the hottest girl in school, Lainey (AJ Michalka), as his girlfriend. Rounding out the brood is beloved grandfather Al “Pops” Solomon (George Segal), the wild man of the clan, a shameless Don Juan who enjoys family time with his grandkids almost as much as his weekly massages.

This season finds the siblings fighting off huggies, snuggies and nubbies, as they navigate what it means to grow up as a Goldberg.
