According To Jim (ABC 2001-2009, Jim Belushi, Courtney Thorne-Smith)

Published

on


A man’s man, Jim is the all-American guy, fiercely devoted to his beautiful wife Cheryl (Courtney Thorne-Smith), and his three kids. He has it all, but he still sometimes wrestles with the former wild teenager lying not-so-dormant within. While supporting his family as a contractor in a design firm with his younger, architect brother-in-law, Andy, Jim still finds time to pursue his other passion, playing Chicago Blues with his six-man garage band.

Jim’s wife, Cheryl (Courtney Thorne-Smith), is smart and sophisticated and loves her husband for his sense of humor and his strong sense of self. She loves him in spite of his frequent selfish and childish antics which, although at times annoying, challenge her to be playful as well. She’s champagne and strawberries to Jim’s beer nuts and bratwurst but they’re in love.

Dana (Kimberly Williams) is Cheryl’s sister. A VP in an ad agency, she’s single, strong-willed and gorgeous, but emotionally shortsighted and self-centered. She is hot on the trail of the perfect guy, but her guys all seem to have commitment issues like getting past the first date. In the meantime, Dana fills up her life enjoying her two nieces and her baby nephew, whom she adores, and verbally sparring with Jim.

Cheryl’s younger brother, Andy (Larry Joe Campbell), is an architect who’s in business with Jim and also plays in his band. Andy is Norton to Jim’s Ralph Kramden. Although he is a brilliant ball of creative energy, his sensitive nature is a great foil for sister Dana and brother-in-law Jim.
